    Default Low Pro Intake?

    I will be rigging a TX 19 in a few weeks and had this on my mind! What setup differences do you incounter with the low profile intakes? Motor plates,rail kits, etc.? And would it add performance by just adding a low profile intake? WT

    lots of variables ,What intake are you considering and are you going back in the same relative position as the current ? do you already have a rail kit and what drive line (length) etc Tom

    Tom, I was thinking of stock location and the rail kit I got from you and all the other rigging! Drive line will be a Jet-a-way with a standard 1350. I think that the rail kit is Lightning! On intake whatever would work best maybe MPD or? WT (AKA Coby)

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    If your are going to bed the intake casting in the same cut out, the jet it self will be approximatley 2" further forward. Running a jet-away and a 1350 you most likeley wont encounter any pan depth issues as the engine will be far enough forward to clear the intake. and your rails will "adapt" Tom

    heres some info from Jacks site : http://home.pacbell.net/jmcclure/LoProIntake.html

    need to keep it set-back coby, call ervin and talk to him about setting the intake for ya.you get too much weight too far forward in that gullwing and its gonna handle ill.

    Thumbs up way far back!!!high pro intake

    my vote is tostick it as far out of the boat as possible,set it so the handhole cover is atleast 12 inches back from the transom and hey put 2 bowl spacers and longest droop they make

    or you could talk to someone that knows what they are doing and has been around for awhile

    but i really do like my ideagood luck cobyTravis

    Default Low Pro

    If you want a low profile intake with a history of success go with the PPP.

    Since you are in the AR area call Erv Capps. He has some very fast boats and a ton of experience with the intakes and the pop-offs.

    If you need I can get you his number.

    not the ideal way of doin it

    ervin put hass's meirsh low pro intake in and did an awesome job he picked up alot of performance

    Lightbulb advantage??low vs reg.

    might i ask the overall advantages of these low pro intakes

    i dont really know cobys overall goal of this build(mph,e.t.ect.)

    but say i was buildin my Tx.

    i for one dont care to go 100 plus in a gullwing style boat,say i want 100mph and that is plenty fast for me.guys have been doing this with ease for along time with standard intakes.

    so what would a average guy gain from the intake,when i say average the regular run of the mill lake feller

    i think this could be a good discussion for non-race to full race boats.Travis
