Thread: Water Box?

    Water Box?

    I took my ski for a test today and it blew the shortened and gutted box apart. I put the stock box back in it and it seemed to slow it down.

    first of all have you guys blown any of these short boxes apart?

    second how much does a stock box restrict a riva stage 3sc with a thru hull exhaust?

    What exactly do you meen by blowing apart? Cause if it was like a bomb, then you must have just done cam work and aligned it 180 out! If you meen burned a hole in it then you could be really lean or you have a blockage somewhere in cooling for intercooler/exhaust.

    Not at all. Sounds to me like your dumping fuel.

    Carl, which short water box are you speaking of? Was it a modified stock water box that was shortened?
