    Lets talk about Waterboxes!

    Well as for me I have never even touched my stock 04 gp1300r WB. I know that Abbotts tripple is/was the best sounding ski I ever heard. Of coarse it was a FPP kit with water injection high dollar stuff but I see a plate in the inlet of the WB like a deflector shield wondering if anybody ever messed with that type box and results. I really just want more sound without losses in rpm's.

    i read somewhere on here that someone cut a waterbox in half, gutted it and welded it back together. hey said it was a lot louder but they didnt mention about power loss/gain

    o i see the pic in ur build. Mine dont have the bend it it. I had a few complements my sound at mudbug. i just wish mine was louder at wide open. I just dont want it much louder at idle. If your ran it thru ur hull higher up out of water then it be much louder i think. Ive thought about doing this several times.

    sorry, but you would actually cut an extra hole into your ski to make it sound louder?

    still having to patch the other hole and make it waterproof..

    seems like a lot of work for a sound

    some people have the TDR waterbox for the gpr.. heard no gain no loss just loud

    I did it to a Gp1200 waterbox. Sorry but the pics are gone. It was just a waste of time. It only made it a LITTLE bit louder. No performance. In the end stock waterbox gives you the best performance. TDR,etc..... are a waste of money not to mention a huge headache after riding for about 2 hours. Just too loud and annoying!
