    Flow-Rite and 4" blower installed...

    This is what I spent a bit of my time doing today. Sorry about the low quality camera phone pics.

    I used a 3" flex hose from my Yami to extend the riva power filter to where you see it now. Temporarily until I get the 4" in there. I put two flow-rites right next to it to suck some "cooler" air from outside and I removed that annoying factory tube that goes in there. Those can be a pain in the crack to put in!

    Then I put the blower on the back as you can see, and gutted the seat cowling a bit to get the hot air out throught there....

    I still have two more flow-rites....Where can I put those? I did not want to put 'em on the back because I dont want the blower to pull air from the back and throw it right out.... I dont know if that makes sense, I figured I better not put any back there and just let the blower take charge or getting the HOT air out....

    Nope, will on Sunday.

    This past Sunday I tested the blower. Did a few runs without it to let that in there get hot and then turned it on. Gained .8mph....On a full tank.

    One of my car racing accounts uses the marine blowers for their brake ducts. The 100+ CFM was not enough so they put in an RC electric car motor to spin the fan a bunch faster. Just a thought to get in more cold air.
