    Filter placement on custom 4in intake?

    I have everything to install my 4in intake but am having a hard time debating where the best place to mount the filter. Where my old Riva 3in would sit i would get water in it, i was looking to moving it somewhere in the gas tank area but im worried there because i dont have the front plastic tubing in case the ski flips so i have the triangle there open. the rear air intake is no good for me either becuase of the kind of riding we do. Where have you guys mounted it or recommend?

    my riva intake the original 3 in style had salt in it and eventually my intercooler and throttlebody so i wanted to mount my 4 in intake in a different area.

    your custom install should be alright dont see what your worried about.

    that looks good, but ive heard from more than one person to aim the filter down in the case that water does get in it doesnt fall right in, it made sense to me, im gonna get around to it today or tommorrow so anymore input is cool.
