    secret extra Air inlet location

    Same location as the filler neck, opposite side. There is an excellent place to punch a hole (cringe) that looks (and rough measures) like it can accomodate another factory air inlet fitting with outerwear material such as what mykull has done to his fittings. Even better yet might or even be to utilize a 3" or 3.5" aluminum tight U bend, slash cut, and facing rearward with a flange welded to it so it can be structurally sealed and riveted.

    I am no fan of drilling holes in a new $$ machine (even though you will see me drill for the aux bilge soon), however, this location would seem to me safe structurally as a hole is bored on the other side for the fuel neck. Plus it is out of site since it's behind the side plastic.

    This location is also pretty well protected, but i think adding a 1.5" or 2" extention hose to the top of the factory fitting would help prevent water ingestion.
