    Question Rxtx Waterbox Mod Possible?

    Alright 2008 RXTX Here is what I wanna do:

    Take the STOCK waterbox and basicaly make my own shorty. Anyone who is familar with the insides of these, I would be totally gutting it, taking out the "false floor" and cutting the pipe that comes out the TOP of the can flush with the inside. Just and empty can.

    Take the pipe that comes into the waterbox from the manifold and cut it so it just goes into the can by about 2 inches. This so I am not blowing all the pressure right against the back of the can which I would be doing If I did not shorten it.

    Where the stock exhaust pipe comes out, mod up Rivas through hull kit for the RXT. This would give me the Jpipe bend on the exhaust side hopefully preventing water ingestion.

    Still leave the waterline connected and sensor in place.

    THATS IT!! SO COME ON NOW PEOPLE, TELL ME, GONNA WORK? NOT GONNA WORK? ANY IDEAS? JUST WANNA MAKE MY SKI A LITTLE MORE BADASS SOUNDING UNTIL I CAN COME UP WITH THE $ FOR HEADERS!!!!

    I am running a homemade shorty. Went down to the Truck supply, bought a couple of feet of stainless 4" exhaust, took it down to my welder, welded in a fitting for the stock water injection only as I did not take the time to go find a bung for the temp. sensor. Made the body just long enough to accept the stock lenght of the exhaust stinger. Put in the Riva thru hole & used an old piece of rubber exhaust hose to make the conection from the thru hul to the box. Plenty of water passing thru to keep the hose cool. Whole deal cost about 120.00 .
