Default Re: Getting all 3 Horse Power out of your GT-5 Sky? (tear down)

Thanks dmb I might do a reed job as an after build performance modification. It makes allot of sense but it’s not on the agenda due to lack of research (on my part).

And bill thanks for the paint suggestion after further research online Duplicolor looks to be the best plus it has a metal leaf line of paints that will actually mach my bike pretty close (deep royal blue with metal leaf, it came that way).

Also fun fact on the stock EPA Catalytic exhaust it gets to around 420 degrees Fahrenheit. This is the hottest part of the engine. So yes 500 degree Duplicolor paint will work fine.

Also because the EPA exhaust has WAY too much back pressure it gets much hotter that it should. That’s why I’m making a custom exhaust with a "tuned to the engine rpm" expansion chamber (also custom).

(Picture of exhaust coming soon)
