Convert from flame arrestor to K&N
I just bought a 06 mobius xlv and it has the 325hp motor in it. It has the round metal type flame arrestor that sits just under the engine cover. Is there a way to convert it where it has a k&n cone style filter? If not, what k&n p/n flame arrestor do I need to just replace the one that comes standard with the boat.

I've also been thinking of doing this for a while. Anyone done it yet???We are eternal, all this pain is an illusion.

got inspected sunday at the ramp.
watercop asked me where the spark arrestor is. told him I didn't know(cause I don't). he pointed to the air intake that looks just like a k&n. asked me what brand it is. told him I didn't know, that it came with the boat. told him it was an '06 340hp catalyzed motor. he said "new enough, your good" and closed the hatch....

Good comeback. They probably know K&N but don't have a clue what you said at the end. That could work for a long time.1998 Mobius

sad thing is I really don't know. it might be a k&n. bought boat as a skiers demo, so I doubt it, but it looks just like ones I have had on my evolutions, and I haven't ever taken it off.
suppose one of these days I'll dig into it, but if the boat runs fine and it's not preventative maintenance, why bother it.'06 Supra Launch 20SSV-gone but never forgotten
