I know it's rather common, to see hot rods on the river without a flame arrrestor or air filter on top of the carb(s). I change my oil nearly every time out, but I still worry about dead bugs and other debris being inhaled by the engine and hurting it. I see a lot of dead bugs on the intake scoop, especially in the evening; It's only obvious that some make it down the intake. I am considering running a flame arrestor with all but one screen removed (for better flow).
Opinions and thought?
This is the style scoop I'm running.
