ive always been leary about installing these but i got to get some hot air out the engine compartment as long as no water comes in....im thinking about putting one up front or even two where the foam gets removed.what size hole saw u guys using for a 2 inch florite?thanks

Yep, got to let the hot air out. The flow-rites I used were the 2" snap in version and they require a 2.5" hole saw. I covered the area with tape and marked the spots and then drilled away. When you put the grab handle back on you will need to install some shims or washers to get the correct height in order to leave a gap.

In the front I've added a total of 6. Two on each side after completing the cutout of the cowl as outlined in Jerry's build thread. I used the two flo-rites per side rather than using the smaller open holes Jerry did (no pics of that, sorry). Once you've done the cutout, you can eyeball placement of the flo-rites, just avoid the angles and choose flat surfaces for mounting them. No clearance issues with the flo-rites other than you have to avoid the mounting bosses.
I also added one more on each side to the black plastic cover that the gas cap sits in. Look closely, you can see that flo-rite in the pic below.
Finally, I doubled up on the intake tubes on the hull as shown. Just ordered the stock cowl fittings and rivets. I didn't use the flex tubes on the two I added. This mod is simple if you make a good template out of stiff paper and cut the holes w/ a rotozip bit in a dremel.
Note: you'll have to trim the cowl intakes slightly with a box knife to clear the cowl covers and trim the interior of the left intake to clear the steering linkage. The plastic is soft and cuts like butter w/ a sharp blade. Also, the new intakes have been altered from the ones that came stock on my 2009. Note the factory notches on the sides of the added (rear) tube in the second pic - I assume the factory changed the mold to address the problem with sucking the foam into the tubes if you haven't already removed the foam. Total cost for this portion of the mod was <$50. All parts are available in Jerry's store.
