    You say its sluggish at take off? Was it ok before and just gone like this lately? The airbox mod does very little imo. I take it you just have a normal paper filter in there at the moment?

    K&N panel filter for me and it smoothed the low revs out, other than that noticed very little, also they are re-usable too.

    When was it the last time it had good service? New plugs, air oil and fuel filters and a fresh change of oil can also help. I just changed my pattern part air filter to a genuine VX one and I can defiantly feel a difference, I also changed from Mobil1 to Magnatec and notice a huge difference in the smoothness of the engine.
