TJ's RXT Rear Seat Intake
This is a intake using 4" drainage pipe (bigger ID) and is about 14 inches from the SC before it's sucking in 100% unrestricted outside air.
I have a outwearsracing.com water pre-filter to cover the cage. You can also fill the bin with blue ice for those grudge races.
I've injested water two times with my front seat intake and it bogged me down for about 15 minutes. I'll have this tested in a week or two and know the performance difference vs. my front seat intake. Then I'm repitching. I'm also going to see if I can even get close to getting water into the rear seat. Their is a slight gap where the bin slides onto the pipe for water to drain through if water was to enter the bin.
I'm also going to mold the seat vents a little better using a brush glue over the ducktape. Also going to smooth out the epoxy paste on the rear air holes. I need to get my hull exhaust tubes that connected to the grab bar, attached also.
The fabrication isn't hard if you know how to dremel.

Which model of outerwear filter is that? Just wondering what I'll need to order for a 4" intake

Just call this number
1-800-967-3450 (quicker than using the web form
Then answer these questions for them
Make sure it's water resistant and breathes from the top.

I believe the one I ordered to fit over the 4" drainage atrium matched a model they had that was a tapered cylinder, 3.5 at the top, 4 at the bottom and 4 length. Water resitant & breathes from the top.
I'm out of town this week but my wife said it has arrived so I'll post the model number.
The trick with the 4" tubing is to get drainage pipe, it has a MUCH bigger hole and is lighter.
