    Ideas on how to make the SC whine a bit louder?

    I like the SC whine, but most of the time I cannot hear it.

    I need to keep the overall noise from the ski low, but increase the SC Whining noise..........just a bit.....

    It would be nice to have some sort of "silent choice" option, like I had on my Fountain many years back.

    riva blow off valve? Not sure if it would make it louder....but on cars a blow off valve certainly makes people realize what you have.

    Run your air intake to the front storage compartment. You will hear it just fine.

    i dont have it on mine, but from what i heard and read on here it sounds like doing the air intake out the rear gives you a nice sound of the SC whine!

    Ummm, my air intake doesn't fit out my rear, but I would guess it makes a nice whine

    thing is when ur riding, u hear 99% wind noise past your ears.... the ski sounds awesome to those on land and those you are passing...

    i love the way my ski sounds so far... with simply a thru-hull exhaust and a direct cold air intake frm the SC to the front hull vent, she growls plenty. can't wait to hear how it sounds with a Vortech in there

    The blow off valve doesn't make a difference in the sound of the SC. You can sometimes hear it hiss when venting boost however.
