    Yup....I had (2) on my old raider...and even made a set up for Bacon at one time. I ran dual 115 CFM fans forcing fresh cool air into the hull. I noticed it helped ....not sure what Bacon found out on his with the set up I had made him

    I have 1 on my raider. Can't say that it helped or not.

    Doing some quick math, an 1100 cc motor needs 2100cfm at 7000 rpm, worst case. you will need much bigger fans. . .

    thanks for the replys guys, so they were always home made i guess..what do you think about battery drain on a total loss system and what about them needing to be water proof? i think this one might not be happening just needed some information

    I wouldn't use it on a TL. They are just standard bilge blowers for boats. I ran mine to a relay that is activated when the gauge powers up.

    You would be better off testing your ski with and without the seat on. if your rpm's go up with the seat off, you need more air. if not, don't bother.

    Who? What? At 100% VE, an 1100cc engine would require 136 CFM @ 7,000 RPM. Because it is a 2 stroke, that number doubles to 272.

    I know what happened. You must have entered CI instead of CC in the calculator.

    yeah, somethings not right. . . anyway, point is, it could be a waste of time if your engines already getting enough air. or worst case add more restriction.

    True. The only thing I would use those blowers for is their intended use: To evacuate the gas fumes from the engine compartment before startup.
