    the inside of that plug(mesh area) is how the water gets into your IC and waterbox....it works off the pump pressure...

    by the way, it will be good to race against you next year....

    That plug is actually a filter screen that keeps the big particles from entering the coolling and IC systems.

    Doesnt work real well if you had seen the graco strainer I installed before Orange Beach...That thing was packed full of seaweed...

    That is because the sea weed and sand is small and slippery enough to go throught this screen. The screen in the pump is for larger pebbles and sticks etc...
    Funny thing, when I cleaned out my boat form Orange Beach, AL there was very little sea weed in it. I bought a strainder after that as well but is not on the boat yet.
