tons of posts on this, I recommend you search for those. Only con to do it is you have to introduce a flame arresting air filter to be legal. The advantages are mostly when you boat at higher altitude.

Or you live in Florida where heat soak is an issue. I did it to mine. Worked great! RPMs jumped to 7700 and stayed there. Awesome hole shots.
