Best water box
Whats the best water box out there? for power, sound, loudness,price? Is using none of them even better? just a straight pipe? are there any pitfalls using a certain box over stock...lets say water injestion?
I love my Pro pinping n poping in there. its sounds so sweet. Everyone always hears it coming. It's not super loud, but you can definetly hear them pinging in there. I wouldnt mind it even a little louder.. noone cares on lake saint clair. too big a lake.
Has anyone ever thought of doing a silent choice exhaust system?
I could have my fabricator guy make a set up for my ski I bet..buy the silent choice valve, a little tubing out of stainless and route it out the back of the ski above the water line!. That would make it loud then!!!
Then mount the solenoid and a switch and your good to go.
You could drill right into the water box and weld the valve right there. that way you havent disrupted the original setup going under the water..
If you think that would be annoying to your neighbors,, what about the 800 HP plus twin big blocks with open headers sounds like on a 40 foot boat? lol

Or...you could just take some tubing and run the exhaust from each pipe individually up and out the hood like on a dragster!!! That would get some attention for sure!!!

i had a custom tdr one made with a 3" inlet for my pro.with the added air inlet and cowling on the hood it was definately loud.had a really cool sound .even with a stock 785 box on it the sound travels out the cowling and you can still tell its me coming.

AHH! The sweet smell of R-50 racing oil coming off those chrome pipes like a dragster! I can see it now. like one of those 60's dragster with the big bent pipes up front on the engine.
Got to keep in mine what happens if you get thrown over the bow or something crazy happening. at least in the back, it wouldbt stick out too much. you could make it almost flush under the rear handle. might have to sleeve the hull too with a small metal stainless ring to keep the heat off the glass.

I wonder if using stainless or brass or copper or steel, thick or thin would work ? I bet they all make different sounds.
On mine, you can hear the pipes thru the Flo-rite.
I think UJUSTLOST runs a straight pipe on his Pro.

Here you go. I used a 3" 90 elbow and thats about it. It's not that loud but noticeable difference. Saves a lot of weight(20 ish pounds between the box and the water inside of it) and better throttle response

I may have a chance to try an aftermarket water box, but if I can't I'm thinking this straight pipe might be one way to easily test this theory.
