    Waterbox Swap?

    Was staring into space at work just now and thought of this.

    Is the secondary waterbox more "free flowing" than the first bigger one?

    What if one were to place the smaller secondary waterbox in the big waterbox spot, and than ran the secondary bypass.

    Could this be a "free" way to have the same results as buying a stage 1 or stage 2 waterbox from R-Rated?

    If someone has pictures of the inside of BOTH waterboxes please post! Maybe we can figure out a way to get a little more performance and maybe if not, just a louder exhaust note for free.

    You would have to drill the secoundary one for a water line. I don't know if the internals are similar in each one but R-Rated does the mod for $85.00.

    Hows the sound of the Stage 2 waterbox you've got?

    Louder than just the secondary delete I assume?

    It has a much deeper tone than before. I can't tell which one contrubutes more to the tone because they were installed at the same time. The stage 2 mod and the secoundary eliminator pipe was about $170.00.
    It will give you a very noticeable gain in midrange and out of the hole pull.

    I thought the Stage II waterbox was an entirely new box? You got that AND you secondary eliminator pipe for $170? On the website it lists the Stage II box at $295 by itself. Wow you got a hell of a deal.

    No, not a complete stage 2 box. The same internal mods as that box. I got a modified box and sent my stock box back to them as exchange.
