If anyone else is still in the Stone age and rides an xp here is an intake I came up with that is more like the stock etec and 850. I used 2 inch tubing for the flanges, 2.5 inch rigid brand vacuum hose and some prefilter. It does require a headlight delete. With this style I can easily wipe them clean. It is the highest point on this chassis that is still vertical and won't collect snow.

Have you ever seen the intake on the xp 600rs sleds? They have an extra airhorn that goes down thru the top of the gauge console and splits between the headlights and punches thru the top of the airbox. I have been running this on my 2010 800 summit since it was new and it has never once bogged in deep pow. If you want to keep factory headlights, its for sure the best option i have found.

This is what I did also. 2010 Xrs and never had an issue either after I install the rs intake. ]

When the boats are done the sleds will run

You're not talking about the one that mounts right on top of the gauge console are you? I don't like that design because when it's deep, I have about 12" of snow that stays there all day. I wanted something that gravity would keep snow from building up on.

Yes thats the one. I wrapped the top of it in a good pre filter material and have never had an issue. Even in pow thats neck deep, never had that sled bog.

I made my left headlight my main intake and remove the upper air box. 4” for the main intake and 2 2 1/2” intakes on the lower box in line with the carbs. Zero issues and no snow to wipe off.
Sorry for the sideways picture, don’t know why it always does it uploading.

Been running air Pods direct on the carb and etec for years without issues

Diamond S hood gives plenty of air flow without any bogging issues

Rotate the phone or camera and take pictures in all 4 orientations. Then post and you'll see which orientation works. It should be with the phone or camera sideways/landscape with the buttons on top.

 

The phone or camera saves all the pictures sideways/landscape to save the processing of moving each pixel to match the ground orientation the picture was taken. With a smart phone or smart camera, it then adds an orientation tag according to the rotation sensor when the picture was taken, and writes it to the EXIF portion of the file metadata.

 

When I look at the properties of the picture file, it shows 640x480 which is sideways. When I rotate the picture with Irfanview, the file shows 480x640 which is portrait and it shows-up correctly on DooTalk. So unless you want to take the time to convert each picture taken in portrait, the easiest is take landscape pictures. I imagine there are apps that will do this. Tapatalk may do this automatically. I have it on my phone, but I haven't posted with my phone yet. Technology is not my thing lol  Hope it helps.
