    Obviously you dont connect the hose under the lid directly to the SC or the power filter pipe
    you just use it to direct more air towards the front air filter and ventilate the hull
    That s what the original poster meant, isnt'it?
    Do you think that would work?

    Any way of providing more fresh,clean air to the SC is a benifit..I think the worry i would have is water injestion..I dont know your guys water conditions but up here with all the boat traffic we can and do run across besides for the everyday mother nature changing the wind direction and speed i usually have water come over the top of my ski quite often..This would be my concern with this setup..

    Here is a thread where me and MXL16 discussed this. http://greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=10065 Pics are of my initial setup. I redesigned it later but I don't think I have any pics of that. I ran it for over a year and at MB'07 with no problems. It is for flat water only though.

    I also did what MXL16 is talking about. Half the filter was in the glove box half was in the hull. Flat water you would open the glove box lid so it could get fresh air and if it got rough just close the lid.

    Last summer I switched a homemade rear air intake and found it to be extremely prone to water ingestion (obviously). So i switched back the under glove box setup. I just switched from a riva filter and a spectre ss filter, like rodney has) with the top inlet. I have it set up exactly has NCHeel describes..the top half (more or less) is pointed toward the glove box, the one side of the filter grabs air from the vent (beneath your glove box) and the other sides grabs air from in the hull. I also have modified flow rites in the side of the cowling to keep in-hull temps down. You can take the glove box lid off when conditions permit. You can even put a 4" flow rite in the glove box lid if you want. Danny had in depth thread about is air intake (which is very similar) im sure if you search you can find it. he made a nice bracket to hold the filter in place.
    You can also put a piece of flow rite over the vent for further protection or a big 4" flow rite in the glove box lid for some more air. All depends on your particular situation. So to answer your question, I am very happy with this setup. I like the flexibility to easily change from rough to glass air intakes in 10 seconds.

    Why don't you just do something like this? Save the glove box for carrying things. Maybe drill a hole in the side like a RXPX to let more air in. Water intrusion is slim to none with this setup.
