Talked to the guy at fuelcustoms in Riverside Ca. He told me he baselined a 450sx yesterday and for shits and giggles threw an intake on it that he had sitting around. Obviosly didnt fit with seat on but wanted to see if he could get a gain. He was blown away that it picked up atleast 2whp acrosss the board. So now he needs a machine to fit one. Then he will sell them. So if anyone lives in Riverside area give him a call and tell him I sent ya. I told him I would find someone. 9095946082. I bet you get one outa the deal for free. Best part is no more crappy filter, the people that have lost a motor are saying its sand getting by the stock filter.

Go check his site out. He builds the absolute best intakes out there on the yami and honda. I know Ive tested them. Hands down best on yami450 for sure.

Who lives in the are?? Step up for us. LOL

Yeah i was showing him a 450SX dyno on another forum and saw you there to. He said his 450SX made 40hp only a bit low...
Anyway that's great news for KTM guys if he makes that intake. His work quality is top notch :)

garrets a top guy, I've been using his intakes on the YFZ's since they came out day one.......

I'm stunned there was a 2 hp gain. Man I want to see what a SX505 will do now with an FCI on there, probably his Honda one is real close to being a bolt in.........

So I am guessing that it will eliminate the stock intake system and use a Honda 400ex style filter?

Way to be on top of things Jake!

Kiwi- You must be a happy camper since Driver got his bike!~ lol

Mine only did 42 so about right. Taking off that little screw out silencer makes all the difference. Game on as rocketron says. LOL 8whp peak and 17whp max at 9200.WOW

they are right now making the fiberglass tube for it. i will pick up my bike friday. he said the billet adapter would cost too much so he dropped that idea. he says the fiberglass tube will be made into a mold for a full intake system. he said about a month till he has a full finished sellable product.

it will be made in a bright orange plastic tube with a clamp-on filter. i will post pics when i get it.

when i emailed Garrett at FCI about a intake for the XC he said it was a month an a half away and that was may 7th.

EDIT: Are the intake designs different from the XC to the SX? i would think they are very similiar.
