remove all the pipe work to air box,elbows ect
remove the mesh covers that hinder air flow that are covering the tb's in the stock box,then replace lid

When you remove the piping and gut the air box. Would you recommend putting a round K&N type filter on the air box opening?

This APBA/IJSBA legal combination produces the highest horsepower of any flame arrestor combination.
Here is the thread that explains it all..
I just ran my 06 gpr in the lauderdale offshore challenge with this combination.
For more info feel free to call me or pm me,

What about water intrusion. Those flame arrestors look awesome, but do you then have to worry about injesting water and seizing?

No more than any other flame arrestor combo.. Flame arrestors do not prevent water intrusion, none of them.. Their sole purpose is to extinguish a flame should you have a backfire from the engine. If you get large amounts water in your hull, fix that problem.. I just ran in a 36 mile offshore race and had zero water in my hull at the end. Minor amounts of water from small leaks do not present a problem, most skis have a little water in the hull after riding. This is not a problem with this combo..

Thanks for the info. I will probably be looking to put these on over the winter. But in the mean time, would there be a similar benefit to gut the stock airbox and remove the stock metal flame arrestors? Would this be safer for water injestion that the aftermarket flame arrestors?

Agree with Ross I have done over 100hrs on my ski with Ross s TBs
Raced in all condition and ride in the surf every week jumping and do the lot never ever had a issue if your getting heaps of water in the ski then fix.
For me Ross TBs win all teh time save your money and do it.
