I can't really see from the pics, but I'm curious about the ram air portion.

Is there some sort of scoop on the backside of the filter to force the air into the turbo? I'm trying to figure out what keeps the rush of air from just passing through the other side of the filter.

I understand it probably doesn't make much difference with the suction of the turbo, but it would seem the mounting location actually has a negative effect on airflow as the speed of the bike increases.

Just curious.

Is there any amount of cavitation in the inlet as a result of the airflow over the bike at speed transverse to the inlet opening?

not to my knowledge... theres no valve behind the filter its straight into the turbo.. BUT I don't know that much either i just had it bolted on and i ride it lol
but the down pipe does shoot flames so i also unknowingly added a flame thrower so i got that going for me

I'm always interested by how much testing and tuning the builders do for these kits.
