looking at fitting my K and N pod
SS induction snorkel
cutting those "speed holes" in the tech document
running a piece of flexible hose to somewhere

now questions
how much can u pick up the hose for... i was looking around at a few places and it looks as if 70-100mm in diameter would be the way to go but looking in a fair few places they want like $70 for a length!

this seems outrageous and im looking for a place to sell it for a reasonable price.

also what is the go with cutting the wholes in the airbox for the flexible hose. just having a quick overview of it i was thinking drilling a whole in the side of it...as low as i can get it. and then taking the hose somewhere to the front bar?

am i right? this does not involve drilling anything but the box??? and do you use cable ties to keep the pipe in place.

thanks

is it actually worth the trouble of drillin holes in your airob when you can just upgrade the intake from the airbox to the t/b to 3"?? and with a k and n pod and the ss induction stuff it seems kinda not worth the time or money..

so does this mod help out much with throttle response?? i say this because power isn't really something you notice with these mods its more throttle response and induction noise..
