    Question

    Hey guys, I'm installing a boost gauge on my ski, I took the side panels off and removed the foam that was there while I was doing the install. Do I have to worry about a lot of water getting into the ski now that foam is gone ? Also while the side panels are off, is there anything else I should do before I button the ski up ? What performance gains if any do I get by removing the foam ?

    removing foam inserts will allow more air flow into hull........a must for modified ski's

    Don't even worry about it because the fake vents are close. There is no way you could get water in there.. I remove the foams and added an extra hole for more air and i ride in ocean when i finish riding there is not water in the hull....

    Where did you add the extra hole ? What about adding some Flow Rite Vents in the rear of the ski ? Like one on each side of the rear to vent the hull of hot air.... Don't know if I have the balls to cut 2 huge holes in the rear of my ski...I've heard they rip pretty easy, not good for flotation...lol

    I wouldn't cut the rear to add flow rides just remove the foams and also remove the hose inside the obstruct the air.. there is a thread in here that shows the location to add the extra vents and it will look like oem.. here it's http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/show...=155543&page=4 post#32 that's the location to add the extra hole for air .

    I put two of the flow-rites in the front where the foam was removed. I put two more in the rear. The two in the rear flow a lot of hot air when under way, even at low speeds.

    I have done the flow rites. They do flow a lot of hot air out the rear.
