    Question for Airflow Experts.....

    Ok, now these are the pics of what I have done as far as flow-rites and the blower. You can see the blower is sucking hot air and throwing it out the seat cowling. The flow rites are in the front to feed the 4" intake....

    Now my question to the airflow experts is the following: If I put two flow rites on the back of the ski where most people put them....will the blower just be sucking the cool air back out because of the flow-rites?

    I dont want the blower to be useless but I really want to hear that S3 SC whine!

    Geo,
    I know you are talking RXT, but let me tell you what I have found on mine.
    I had the fan and it blew out very hot air out the back on my RXP. When I removed the seat, I could feel the heat in the engine compartment. I didn't want to buy a riva rear intake because I was worried it would get too damn hot without the fan. Well after hearing the rear intakes at MB3, I had to have one and i didnt give a phuck about the heat. I put 4 flowrites in the cowl, added the rear intake, and when I pull the seat off, it is ALOT cooler in there then it was without the flowrites. I have not had heat fade AT ALL, since putting it in. The other day out, 8550 rpm's ALL DAY with 95 air and 88 water.
    So....to answer your question after all my babbling, If you have a spot for more flowrites, PUT EM IN. it can only help.

    Geo! Just drill into the hull in the back where most of these guys are installing it on thier RXP's! It shouldn't hurt anything! It's pretty thick around the outsides but you should get better results!
