    Alright-might of sucked something into my air intake...what to check?

    I have a 4" kana system installed. I had it fed by the left side vent air intake hose, on the outside of the ski (air intake vent hole) I installed frogzskin to keep water from getting sucked into the intake. I had it secure or so I thought.... I went to check it and its gone! I removed the whole kana and checked it for the frogzskin and such and nothing. I then checked by the supercharger for debris and nothing there either. There is a slight chance it got detached and fell outside the ski but that's prob a 50/50 chance...not sure when it went missing and the motor runs fine. What else can I check??

    It probably fell off the ski man. I'm pretty sure if you sucked in frogzskin, you'd know it! lol

    Well I looked more closely and there is some stringy stuff by the S/C but that's all I can see, nothing really bad. The chance of it actually falling out is slim, because the way the plastic on the ski is. It was held on by plastic which I guess would get chopped into small pieces and get blown out or stuck somewhere??

    You would have some evidence if you sucked up plastic or frogzskin. If your ski is still running fine, just double or triple check that ALL intake lines and everything are 100% clear and keep trucking. If something got into the motor somehow, I'm SURE you'd have found out while riding it!

    You would have known it when you sucked it up. Ski would have fell on its face and acted funny. You are probably good bro...

    Bet that Frogskin tasted like chicken to the SC.

    If it made it thru the SC and throttle body, it would be in the IC.

    I guess I am okay for now..I still think it got sucked in! Hmmm wonder how hard it is to pull the internal IC.

    Well I finally removed my intercooler and all the pieces were wedged inside! Ill upload pics in a little, I hope this is the reason my ski wasn't responding well to vtech tunes. I mean there was ALOT. I am cleaning the intake manifold now to make sure there is nothing else in there.
