will a 4 in intake suck water in?
I have heard some stories of people after installing their 4in intake that they are sucking water in on rough days. Seeing as i ride in the sound and go into the ocean for wave jumping im trying to decide if i can still do this mod! also i love to do those nose drives with the ski and what not is that going to be a problem? lemme know what issues could arise for me with a 4in setup.

nothings perfect. mount it right /below the glove box and you, for the most part, should be alright!

Rear air intake is NOT for wave jumping.

Do like Mike had described.Mount your filter up front by the white storage bucket.I have ran mine there and am currently running my wifes there with no issues....

i need to look and see how the stock one is mounted because i dont have any problems with it now sucking in water maybe i can mount it similair to the stock one?

Correct...The 4 inch front air intake can be mounted almost identical to the stock setup..Only thing is now instead of using the restrictive OEM air intake you now have a 4 inch unrestrictive air intake setup to feed your Scer..

Re: will a 4 in intake suck water in?
On my px the stock air intake sucked air upwards. This would stop splashing water from getting pulled in imo. The spectre pulls in air on all sides so its not quite comparable to me. My friend has nose dunked my ski and caused a little ingestion before even with it up high as possible. He will not be doing that anymore.

I have mine high up next to the steering bracket, i've had the ski buried and been OK. also jump the ski in 8-12ft seas kept the filter dry.

I've got mine high up under the steering and I've never had issues with it. Been out on the ocean in a storm getting absolutely pounded too. Don't do that. Not a good idea.
