    budget 4 inch intake $35 not $350

    so i did not feel like dropping $350 for each of my rxpx to put a 4" intake in so i found this decent option for much less money

    see links at bottom

    3" to 4" silicone elbow w 2 hd clamps for connection to supercharger $14 (ebay)
    4" flex hose $13 (harbor freight) can apply 20% off code online
    4" connector $3 (harbor freight) 2 needed... 1 for hose to elbow and 1 for the beginning of hose... you can apply another 20% code in same purchase, just find a different code

    all together w discounts and shipping it cost me only $35 per ski.
    and for piece of mind ... im going to add a k&n drycharger over the hose opening to keep dust and any splashes out of intake... $10-$15 ebay

    not the same... and many will tell you the way you have it set up is not ideal. first off dont use a filter w that gauze inside. if it ever gets wet it will restrict air flow.
    also... my set up will use a 4" hose to route the opening of the intake towards the nose of the ski to get cooler air.
    where you have that filter it would be sucking heated air reducing optimal combustion and power.

    no water in my hull and it's an oiled filter..
    but I do agree routing it to one of the hull vent hoses up front is a nicer setup...

    you dont play hard enough if there is no water. water is always finding its way in mine... it gets sucked out but will splash around for a bit

    yes... probably through those hull vent hoses you're connecting your intake to.. LOL!

    I agree. Go hard or go back to the boat dock. I have mine in the nose also. If your doing it right you'll get some water in there. That's what a bilge pump and the holes in the back are for

    Those Spectre preoiled filters ooze oil, be careful.

    Those are restrictive and will rust.
