    Cold Air Intake

    This Has Probably Already Been Done, But It Should Work Good, But I Can't Try It Until Next Spring. Had The Riva Power Filter On And It Sucks In Alot Of Warm Air So I Thought This Should Work. I Extended The Tube Into The Storage Bin, Blocked Off The Existing Air Inlet At The Elbow And Put A Tube Into The Storage Bin For Cool Air. Theoretically The Storage Bin Should Be Cool And Dry. If I Could Make This Into A 4" Intake It Would Be Ideal. Hopefully The Pictures Went Thru. Any Thoughts?

    Why not just run the intake directly up to the tube itself, bypassing the storage bin? Less distance traveled + less turns = less resistance which equals better flow...

    seems like a good solution if you do alot of ocean riding and dont want to get water in your intake.

    Worth a try...I would remove the outwear, it's restrictive and not needed if it is dry. Remember, that's all the air the engine will get. Might not be enough. Watch the fuel consumption. If it goes way up then you aren't getting enough air.

    ummm,,not to be a deek but,,,I dont get it? The storgae bin is sealed,,so with that being said,,just what are you doing? Taking air tube into bin then another intake tube into bin with filter? I dont get it. Seems your transferring air from hull injto bin to get for motor. So whats the point?
