    Progress so Far

    I have working my my Stage II + S3 and here is what Ive done so far.
    I got a strainer from Mcmaster and did the tow valve while i was at it and mounted it via a SS plate bolted to the seat cowl were the plastic air duct was.

    The Catch can there was no way I was paying $150 or w/e they cost for a plastic container. I made the catch can for $13 at Home Depot. $11 for SS Filter. SS pipes/coupler/hose barb were $30. So for like $55 I got a homemade catch can. I appreciate you guys posting the parts list for it because that saved me a lot of time finding the stuff.

    I used the stock hose brackets off the manifold and TIG welded/tacked the SS pipe to the brackets so its all one piece. I hate drilling holes in my ski so this was the ticket and cheap.

    The filter/tow valve are right behind the coolant tank and easily accessible. I just set the cowl on there for pictures. I am waiting on my riva stuff so I can put the exhaust plug in and seal everything up and install my XS with custom SS brackets.

    Im currently installing my RRFPR in my fuel unit.

    Then when riva stuff comes I have the impeller/intake grate/Pro NOPAS/ S3/ Riva Waterbox/ Thru Hull Fitting

    Havent made the 4" filter bracket yet. Just got the stock intercooler out of my way so I can see were the kanaflex goes.

    Yeah its pretty study in my opinion. The stainless barb at the end isnt really needed. I thought I was going to tack the barb to the hose holders on the manifold but then I just scooted it down to the coupler which was round instead of hex and it fit so much better.

    Bring it over and I can tack it up for ya if you need anything. The pipe is $11 and the coupler was $8.

    Got the intercooler/impeller/NOPAS/Waterbox/Thru Hull/RRFPR all mounted and ready to go.

    Once my SC gets swapped out I should be ready to hit the water and check everything over. Will get pics when Im done farther.
