Mix and match?
So, I purchased the naca vent from Vans (about $90), thinking I would move my Ducati VR from the shelf to the newly recommended firewall position for the Silent Hektik. In talking with an ex-Synergy A&P, he told me the Silent Hektik comes with a mounting plate, which would be incompatible with the Ducati. My question: Have any following this thread installed the naca vent while leaving the Ducati VR in its original (shelf) position, AND experienced positive results from doing so? I’m now holding off on cutting the hole in the cowling until I eventually get the SH and mounting plate. However, part of my brain is saying “more airflow, even to an inferior VR and location, is better than the Ducati on the shelf with minimal air flow.” Thanks.
