    baba, run the Kanaflex from the supercharger around the engine side (where OEM air intake is) and up to the front of the engine and up to the top of the fuel tank. You will need the stainless steel air filter and mount it directly under the OEM air intake hole under the glovebox. The supercharger side will need either 1) 3"-4" reducing elbow (siliconeintakes.com) or 2) the 4" SC adapter from 4-tecperformance.com. Eitherway, you can't lose.

    Once you have that ss air filter installed and mounted up high above the fuel tank, you will have no worries about water ingestion. Jeremy

    Good call mrbdt.

    If you insist on plugging back into 4" air intake, use the adapter at the end of the breather line and cut a very small hole in the Kanaflex and insert the breather line and adapter into the kanaflex. DO NOT make that hole big at all. You would want a very tight fit...so force the breather line and adapter into it.

    Baba, You could try this....Get one of these:

    http://www.spectreperformance.com/#CATALOG.9709


    Take it and drill a hole in it the size of the OEM peice that originaly connects that hose to the intake..Once you have the hole drilled pop the OEM piece into it,connect your Kana flex and then the OEM hose and you then will still utilize your breather hose...You will have to cut two seperate pieces of Kana Flex..One from your air filter to the adapter.And one from the adapter to the SC ...

    definitley keep the breather inline to the air intake, it lubricates/prtects your air intake/SC from corrosion.
    you ride in salt correct???
    its only in higher performance applications where the crankcase fumes can hamper performance.
    maybe once a season pull out your intercooler and flush it with a mild solvent to clean out all the oily buildup, as it will insulate/lower the cooling capacity of the intercooler, but it also protects it, thats important.
