    Is a reed valve required with a piston ported cylinder...? What else do I need to know before I install one.

    With a reed valve, how essential is it to use a piston with a "window" of holes on the intake side. What are the symptoms if you do not? I think that is why mine has no torque or rpm?

    Does a boost bottle perform the same function as a reed valve?

    a boost bottle performs no function whatsoever. it's a snake oil product.
