    For all of you with custom air intakes what filter should i get, where should i get it from, and what else do i need? Is custom the way to go or should i just buy the riva power filter for $225? Thanks

    the power filter from Riva is easy, direct plug and play, and includes EVERYTHING needed. for a custom air intake, it's alot of footwork and small pieces to make up and get creative with.... are you planning on doing alot of mods or just mild modifications? ... i'm probably going to recommend you just go with the Riva power filter and then down the road do an alteration to it to get a little more cool air flowing thru it.

    Mine is going in the GPR so the air intake is custom. I just need the element. Where to buy?

    depends how much room you have... ur no idiot hydrotoys :P filters in themselves are restricitive, so going with the largest one possible that your space can accomodate is best... you can call K&N direct... they have a monster 4" filter that's like 9 inches long.... buddy of mine got that one (VMAN) and hooked up a high HP shop vac to it to see what kind of resistane it had... NEARLY NONE...

    another tip i've heard thru the grape-vine is putting the air filter in battery acid... it eats up some of the filter or something, maybe makes it more porous?.. to get air flowing a bit better while still mainting it's filtration properties

    I use the K&N universal filters- the sizes and shapes are plentiful... I pick one that Outerwears already stocks a water repellent pre-filter for and then order that through them.

    If you call Outerwears and give them the K&N part # they will tell you if they stock a pre-filter for your potential choice in filter.


    One thing that you may want to consider is that the universal filters are not classified as marine flame arrestors and not USCG approved- it doesn't bother me, but may some...
