    Waterbox Question

    I have an "05" RXP, and a plate has broke loose inside the waterbox. Not the baffle plate that runs up and down but a plate across the bottom. I have been able to extract all the loose pieces, but my question is this...is the plate across the bottom some kind of heat shield that protects the outer shell from getting directly blasted with hot exhaust. In short, does it need to be there or can I run without it for now? Any input would be appreciated....Thanks, Rick.

    The bottom baffle does prevent from burn through...You can either replace the waterbox, or trim back the Jpipe about 1.5" to avoid a direct shot, allowing water to mix with the exhaust gas earlier...Drill out the 3 pisser holes slightly also...
