4" Intake questions
I was wondering what kind of clamps are the best for the hose to charger connection? Regular hose clamps or is there something better? Also how hard is it make the bend on to the pump also there looks like there are gonna be clearance issues with the stock waterbox. My hose should be in tomorrow and I want to have all my ducks in a row.

If your running kanaflex hose for your intake you can remove some of the steal ribbing inside the rubber. This gives a better tightening surface. To do this cut a small patch in the ribbed part of the rubber. Don't cut through! Cut the rib with a pair of diagonal cutters, its tough. You need to do this is small sections in order for the metal rib to pull out.

dont they make a 90 degree 3" to 4" silicone coupler???
then the bends are much less drastic??

I was wondering about th ose stiffener rings. That helps. I already have the r&d adapter. So I'll be using that.

Meeper, how do you find the 3" to 4" 90 works?? do you think as good as the sc adapter. im thinking that it would be a more gradual reduction in diamiter so maybe flows beter. Im looking into a 4" setup on my ski and wanted some feedback on what others had tryed. Thanks R8

my guess would be that the 3"->4" 90* silicone reducer would be better than the adapter because it is a more gradual reduction.
only problem might be if the pressure of the flexy kanaflex distorts the 90* silicone reducer.
if it were me i would go with a silicone reducer...
also probably less PITA to get the kanaflex in neatly.

A small section of 4" aluminum tubing makes a nice connector. A coupla more clamps but perfect joints.
