    Holes in engine cowling?

    HI Jerry...I noticed in some of the mudbug pics of your ski, that you have two holes (covered) on your engine cowling. Are these just for further ventilation or something?

    I'm using the rear seat vent as an intake for my supercharger so i must vent the engine compartment. Those holes you see are actually something called Flow Rites. Its a special screen that doesn't allow water in, but does breathe very well. I have two on each side, two in the back, 6 total. They are easy to install. Just drill a 2 1/2" hole and they snap right in.

    thanks Jerry..They actually add to the overall look as well. Have you noticed any improvements with these? My next question was water ingestion but you have already answered that.
