    Ultra Intake In Rear compartment? Good, bad??

    I know for the 15F hull some people route their intake filter into the rear storage bucket with great results, would the same work on an ultra? I checked to see if the filter would fit with the rear seat in place and it does.

    Would this benefit me at all.

    Picture of what I am talking about:

    I can't see why not, You will want to raise the rear seat up though, otherwise you will starve it.

    Not a good idea.. I notice after my riding, that area is prone to "collect" water and stay there!

    +1 when I lifted the rear seat a little to allow more of a flow through the rear tubes it allowed the seal around that compartment to no longer keep water out and that fills up on my ski BUT that is when I am in rough water. I would think that if you are only riding on VERY smooth water it would work. I would not recommend it any other way. I lowered the rear seat and no more water. This would cut off the air flow to your engine if you had the rear seat set to not allow water in.

    +1 +1 I personally think you wuld be better off doing Skips RAM air mod and installing flo-rites!!
    (if your looking for more fresh air).

    I don't think a good idea either. Alot of the heat in this boat is generated towards aft (the is where that SC lives / alot of heat generated in this area). The cooler air would seem to be farther towards the bow (where the current air intake is)
