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 ?

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

Here's a pic of my Boost Gauge installed, I have a R&D port adapter on the MAP sensor, that's where I tapped off of to get my boost reading....
