    Crazy Howling Noise - Gee, I wonder why? :)

    I was out at the lake with my family yesterday, and one of them comes back riding way earlier than I would have expected.

    I went to see if everything was alright, and she says "no, there's some strange noise when I take off, and I got scared that something was wrong". I jump on the ski, and run out about 100 yards. As soon as you hit the throttle, there's this crazy howling noise coming from right under the steering, so I'm thinking the intake hose has popped off or something. I head back in, take off the seat, and find the problem.

    Has anyone else had this happen, or am I the (un)lucky one?

    This was on my 09 SHO, with about 50 hours on the part. It's basically a stock ski, with the intake ribbon delete, air filter, intake grate/ride plate swap, and the BOV from RIVA for peace of mind.

    Can you swap the hoses, or do I need another assembly? The BOV seems fine (other than laying on top of the supercharger, that is).

    Those posts were one of the other reasons that I bought the Tial instead.

    Ditto, I just ordered the Tial from Jerry today in fact. I just wish the powercooler would come setup for one.

    The R&D pro IC does that's what's swaying me to that model when I finally order an IC, holding out to see the new Fizzle though, hopefully he'll have an option for a Tial flange welded in.
