    What to do with PPG intake mod

    Last year I bought the PPG intake mod. Did not really see anything special. The best part was the new impeller. Anyway, I never knew the best way to try to hook up his elbow that goes to the fan with the stock set up. I used the good old stand by of duct tape. It seems to work but looks like shit. So...I either want to get rid of this mod and try something else or find a better way to pipe it up. Need some suggestions.

    Thanks for the help

    Peter

    what to do with it? sell it of toss it in the garbage or modify it to be a hull vent.... far superior means of intakes at this point, and for some weather stripping, wires, and a fan the customers lost limbs for that mod....

    rip the fan and eletrics it out of it and use the fan for ventilation or something... i wouldn't bother tapping the intake with that rubber elbow and setup that intake kit.

    so it wasn't hooked up to a lanyard power source to shut off when pulled?

    maybe install error?

    nope... it's a switch hooked direct to the battery... the PPG kit was never designed to shut-off with the lanyard.

    the PPG air kit does nothing for top speed... it's an acceleration kit.. the speed gain comes from the prop.

    for the same price you can get a Riva stage I and see much better gains... but AT THE TIME people jumped all over that homemade kit like it was the best thing because nothing else was available in the beginning of time.
