    When you do an aftermarket intake what does it sound like?

    Just curious if it's crazy loud or what it sounds like,if any different. My roots style supercharged car after an intake whined like crazy,while my procharged Zo6 you could only hear at idle.

    Also what's to stop me from removing the factory air box and using the factory intake tube with a piece of screen to stop debris on my GTR? I know it's not as efficient as a kannaflex but I can't justify spending much extra coin on the ski for another year or so.

    Depending on what charger you have you may not hear anything. You can do the mod you talked about but switching to a kanaflex 4" is much better.

    The 215 charger will NOT make much ZZZZZMMMMMZZZZZZZMMMM. In my experience the Riva 3" front air intake make the sound a little more noticible than the Kanaflex tube. However the Riva 3" front is restrictive and not worth the money. If you want ZZZZMMM upgrade your charger!!!!

    the stock charger even with a short rear air is not loud enough to be annoying
    with a big charger and rear intake it is loud but IMO not so loud that it needs to be changed
    with big charger and a 4" intake tube to the front of the ski IMO is not loud

    if you drill the back of the hull and put a larger frogzskin over the hole then point the intake at it, you'll hear it. Now that I have the 137x4 I kind of wish I didn't because it's ear piercing. Figure your future mods into what you're doing.

    Captain Spalding, I had a Riva 3in on my stock 215 charger for awhile and I can say that it was more noticeable then stock. Now is it loud enough that other people on the water hear your charger, no. That being said one guy did notice and ask about it while I was idling.

    by that do you mean make a fuck load of noise and still get trounced by any decent sports car then make excuses like there was something on the road or the other car got a head start? That kind of whining? If so I've heard a ton of that.
