    Air mods for GPR....

    I am going to open F/A's (already rejetted).

    All of the airbox stuff including the chamber in front of the oil pump can go now.....Right ? It seems it is just taking up space now.

    Will be opening up the other cowling soon .

    You can take all of the air box assembly out of it now. My honest opinion is that you can open up everything in the front that you want to but if you have nowhere for the air to exit you are not going to be gaining anything. There have been a lot of people talking about putting flow rites in the rear of their skis so that the air has a place to exit the hull but I dont know that anyone has actually done it yet.

    It would be kind of like sealing the under carriage of your car and driving down the road. All the air can come in through the grill but if there is nowhere for the hot air to go the car would overheat. This is just my opinion. I'm sure other members will have their own opinions.

    I put some air box vents http://www.dual-star.com/index2/Equi..._box_vents.htm in the rear of my seat. Drill holes all the way thru, pull out the foam and glue in the vents.

    I disagree, you are better off with a lot of air coming in and none leaking out to pressurize the hull. The air exits by being sucked into your carbs and blown out the pipe!
