How do you ITG/Rottwieler owners direct the bowl vents? Same way like the box is on?

I'm loving the no airbox setup for the LC8 engine because of better power/throttle response and ease of access!!!

165/168 mains, 45 pilots, 4mm floats, 1.25 turns on the screws, Factory Pro needles set to the 3rd clip. I could maybe go fatter but I like the 40mpg.

The 4mm float height leans everything out and is critical and key.

I"m about the same as Chuck Racer- I think I did a bit bigger on my main (168/170 or 170/172? pretty sure the latter), 45 pilots, 4mm floats (or at leat what I think was 4mm as the floats were uneven side to side), FP needles at the middle slot (3rd), and not sure about the turns on the flex jet screws as it ran fine the way it was so I didn't screw with it more..

700' elevation, ATL. dual akros.

Has anyone experienced a tendency for easier water access to intake without the enclosed airbox and snorkel?

I've run ITG on dirt sprint cars for several years, they get caked with mud, like 1" thick,, often slimy wet mud.. Never found the water to penetrate.. Even hit it with a pressure washer once on accident,, thought I'd be pulling the heads.. But nothing went through.. I'm sure if I had kept at it it woulda been bad..

Keep em oiled good and they stop a lot!

not to crazy with water but I've had mine in water a bit over 2' deep and no issues. i was concerned but so far nothing has gotten past it. My concern now would be falling over in the water and having the motor running. but IMHO you would have issues with the stock airbox in that situation as well. so i worry about that 2% of the ride but 98% of the time it's full of win.

What oil do most people use? I've used UNI oil before with UNI filter material, but it was a bit of a pain.

No-Toil filter oil and filter cleaner.

Sportingwood told me once he also uses UNI oil. I hope I'm correct because I cannot find said pm right now.

The ITG distributor that I deal with told me specifically to avoid NoToil. Higher alcohol content in the oil can cause accelerated deterioration and the cleaner is known to, at least to my man at ITG, dissolve the glue that holds the thing together. Personally, I've always had good luck with NoToil products but I won't use them or recommend anyone to use them on their ITG's. I generally use UNI or PJ1 spray and wash in a 5 gallon bucket of warm dish soapy water. Also, I have a new product that I am using in addition to that which really cleans out the oil quick without harming the foam which will be available soon.

I am really glad to see so many of you guys happy with the kit, really appreciate it!

+1 The Notoil works for the Non Glued foam, but its not recommended for a couple of the dirt filters either.. I use Dish Soap / Dawn and a bucket of warm water.. Make sure not to use any type with anti bacterial agents,, its bad for plastics.

The outer skins make a HUGE difference, you can use a couple and just peel off like tear-offs. More than 2 though seems to choke things a bit..

Cheers
Dave
