    filter looks like it'll breathe nice . . . it wants a 4" intake pipe to make more of a difference.

    Yea, eventually It'll be a full 4". Just gotta figure out all the right parts to get. But for now, this should be an improvement over the Stock System.

    For the future, a stainless steel racing filter will breathe better. Keep in mind the rectifier in the air box and the oil blow-by hose. I'm a big fan of using a "Y" connector to employ the stock system also.

    Yea, I am going to make up a Heat Sink & Bracket for the Rectifier, and use a Catch Can for the Breather.

    You already have an extra heat sink. Mount it upright using the old aluminum air box bracket as the extra heat sink. I used tie wraps and I really need to take a picture of it! Simple and works well.

    There's enough of a Contact Area for the Rectifier against that thin Bracket to not cause any over heating problems?

    So far no problems and I was out towing a tube all day Saturday low 90 air temp with High humidity and 75 water temp. Boat temp gauge was low 80's
    I will post picture of how I mounted it, may make more sense about utilizing surface area running with them straight up and having the bracket go between the fins.

    Here is Version 2 of the Intake. I just did this one this morning.

    I didn't even take the Boat out with the other one. I didn't like it after I got it done. It wasn't held down, so it coulda just flopped around, the Rectifier was still attached to the Stock Air Box with no way to dissipate the Heat.

    So here is Version 2. I am utilizing all the OEM Tubing for now, still have the hook-up for the Crankcase Breather, so that is still functional. I took out the Stock Air Box, unbolted the Rectifier from it, and drilled 2 holes on the Air Box bracketry that is inside the Engine Compartment, and mounted the Rectifier to it. I also wedged the Lip of the Bracket in between 2 Fins of the Heat Sink on the Rectifier, so it will dissipate the Heat that way, and through the 2 Stainless Mounting Bolts as well.

    Here's the final version of my Intake System. Since I am running the Gibson now, it has freed up ALOT of room in the corner where I want to put it.

    4" all the way to the SC. NO reduction ANYWHERE.
