<VV> Raising Air Cleaner

Better flow to the carbs, the column of air down the crossover  
doesn't want to make the sharp turn at the end.  The reason the  
aftermarket filters Fitch put on the Sprints worked better isn't the  
surface area of the filter (on two carb engines it's less than  
stock), it's getting rid of that turn.  A smoother turn would also  
work, see http://autoxer.skiblack.com/airfilter.html for a photo of a  
GB install with smooth bends.  The '60 housing, BTW, probably doesn't  
have this issue since it has those nice smooth bends in the hoses.
