    RXT air intake mod

    First of all this is a mod for those of you who aren't brand loyal
    ..........it involves installing a Ultra250x part to your RXT.
    On the opposite side of the gas filler there is a flat section. This is where you need to cut a hole and install a vent (tube) from a 250X. A flexible tube will be inside your hull, you can trim or just bend it to your preference.
    I'm currently using Steve Friebe's 4" up front intake and it works great. I just added this to give it a little more air.

    No, the hood covers the vent but still leaves plenty of room for it to breathe. As you can see there is a raised lip, this helps to keep water out. Additionally, I sealed it with silicone. Also there is an internal corrigated tube that extends downward about 12 or 14 inches inside the hull. Besides being functional it has that OEM look as well. I prefer this set up over the installation of a flow rite.

    How much was it for the parts(need part#s)? Any pics inside of the hull? How about a pic with the hood down. It looks good. I've rode my RXT with the seat off and what a difference more air can be.

    Neat thought but, why don't you go straight from the S/C,through a hole in the rear bucket and then put a 3" filter with outer wear. I cut two holes through the plastic grab handle and cut off part of the rear seat. It only cost me a little time, the flexible inlet section from a RXP (hand me down) and a filter with outerwear. All the s/c sucks is cool clean air from the outside and this is the configuration that all the race boats use except they use a composite rear seat. I'm going to upgrade to 4" but the holidays is here and I don't have spare change. I'm breaking 70 with this simple mod. and zero water intrusion.

    fateracing,

    It looks nice. I had a similar idea using flow-rite stuff mounted under the side faring/trim pieces....after thinking about it though I decided on the shortest route.

    I'm with skipSC on this one.

    Here's mine.
