Kats can Drag all day long, and when some one tells you they cant, take them to the track and tell em to repeat them selves inside their helmets while watching your tail light speed away welcome! my first Kat was an ex drag.

well to be real honest only using parts of the Kat motor swing arm and forks on a 82 gs750 that i already had as a dragbike. the gs frame sits me a little closer to the ground so lower cog. but with the 17"wheels from the kat i have alot better selection of tires.

Welcome. 750 has a decent amount of power. Couple easy mods and it's got more. (Ignition advance and jet kit)
Going to do any engine work, or is that going to be left stock?

currently sitting stock. from what info I'm finding should be about 20hp more then the original motor.thinking cam swap and some new jets if i can find the cams cheap enough.
still trying to sort the cam thing out everything I read tells me the 89 gsxr cams are the way to go for drop in. but they are hard to find cheap.

Got a question here that is slightly confusing me. I have searched this forum many different ways nobody has tried this that I can find.

Since I am putting this motor in a different frame. I wont be able to use the stock airbox. no plans on pods. looking at building an airbox that fits the frame. I have already figured out that these carbs don't work correctly with an air box.

My question here is there really more to the airbox then being a common source of air with a certain amount of restriction?

I have read about the resonance stuff. but is that for performance or more for noise from the intake? (I.E resonator chambers on a car)

the stock airbox provides the restriction needed for the CV carbs to work right. Just a thought: Rednecks aren't rare. At least not in the South.

so what your saying is I should be able to fab up an air box as long as i get the restriction right. and the screen name, I had that nickname given to me about 20 years ago by a canadian been using it as my screen name ever since.

The air box balances the air between the carbs. It does not restrict the air flow. The filter is designed to provide the proper air restriction needed for the carbs to function correctly. You could fab an airbox, but it needs to be able to accept an OEM type filter or it will not run right and the correct size boots.
