Extra bug protection help.

I know Ive seen it here before but after looking through countless threads I can t find it. Just where do you fit some extra screen to prevent the bugs from clogging the air filter. Ive got the box off and was going to do it inside but it looks like it would restrict the air flow.

I think the screen mod is fantastic. Great idea. I like the fact that the air can get in from either side of the screen.

Panty hose may be too restrictive and could cause a loss of power under hard acceleration.

I agree 100% Some of the other mods I found intalled wraping the snorkel with screen of the sock method you mention. We deal with ALOT of bugs here and those just weren'n opions.
