So when I see bikes with a velocity stack, that's not ram-air or is it? Are they just getting rid of the big air box and replacing it with a strait pipe and a micro filter? How difficult are they to install?
A velocity stack isn't ram-air. Ram-air has the stack facing the front of the bike where air is ram into it as you ride. See Darkstars bike in the gallery. The velocity stack does draw some air from the side if you duct it up to the filters. Otherwise a lot of them are for show and don't do a thing.

The process is fairly simple if your handy. Some fabrication and drilling is required to make a plate that holds the sensors that come out of the stock air box. If you can handle making the plate, the rest is very easy.
