Having just completed the 600 mi service I had the chance to inspect the air filter box and how its designed. It seems to me that the intake of air may well be restricted by the size of the opening into the box and the rubber "tube" that protrudes into the box. I know theres reasons for this, such as eliminating rain, reducing engine noise, etc....but does anyone have any ideas if the engine might perform better with a larger opening, i.e, without the rubber insert tube? Just curious.

Comment on K&N filters, of which I have always been a believer: Read somewhere on the internet a study done of paper, cloth, and foam filters. Basically it said foam performed better, with paper coming in next, and that K&N, by the very nature of their improved air flow, did not filter as well. And here I'm running them on my ultralight motor, and two cars!

Will answer my own questions: See the article below on "Snorkle" which addresses the removal/alteration of the Snorkle/rubber tube I referred to above.
