    OEM GPR sound suppression. Actually makes a difference. And yes, you can fit it with an external IC

    Yup, thats one of the reasons why I switched to the '08 exhaust setup.

    Recycle it at you closest facility if noise is an issue.

    just a dumb question. since i haven't finished my 4 stroke conversion yet. how bad do these things drone with a gutted waterbox and free flow exhaust and a in tunnel exhaust outlet? since i have an xlt hull not anything flat on the back of the ski to do a rear exit unless i do some body work.

    my waterbox is a gutted/ shortened wave venture 1100 waterbox. also ill be mr-1 fx ho power and not rotax or the newer 1.8l. these ski's sound really good open exhaust idling and reving up on the hose but don't know what their like in the water. i work on customers stuff all day and its all put back together stock.

    my modded waterbox....

    and slociviccoup, the mc1 is the most gutted waterbox you can get. yours will be extremely loud and annoying, just like the mc1. your ears will be ringing within 5 minutes, bleeding in 10, and you will realize that you wasted your time and money modifying that water box after i told you time and again not to.

ID:	303826 i was going to cut a hole in the end of box and slide pipe all the way to the front with about 12 20mm holes in it facing the bottom of the box . I would weld both ends to the waterbox and plug the rear....
