How have others stopped water from getting into their sequential scoop intakes??
I'm a bit worried about water getting through the filter and into the motor.

Id have a small lip around the rear side of the sequential scoop, with about a 6mm hole at the back, so that water that comes in while driving while gravitate to the rear of the scoop, and run out the hose under the bonnet somewhere. As for when not driving, id have the scoop designed in a way so that there was no way for water to get in from directly above. If you already have the scoops but, i guess this doesnt help ya!

I'm using a pannel filter, the xh setup is the same as the eb, where air enters the top of the box and leaves through the bottom into the motor.

You can get replica XR style bonnet vents from supercheap auto or maybe auto one, something like 14 dollars each. Might be worth a look. For that price you could even hack them up and get some body filler, and make them how ya want :D

Might be an idea to get this guy to join up to the site. I know A LOT of people are interested in these, so if he wants some business, this would be he place to come to. Plus, its another member :D

The only question is, do we get a spotters fee?

He is a member, or at least he use to be:

He also sells the modifyed boxes to suit the EF-EL series so that the sequential scoop actually works, not just for show

His e-mail is:

radek911@hotmail.com

I wanted a set of those sequential scoops. Would be very cool.

www.ccs.com.au = some business site, no mention of sequetial bonnet scoops for an EF XR, just a lot of marketing mumbo jumbo.
