2004 intake question

I have a 2004 660... the intake is below the center console thing... but I think I was told that after the 2004 it was relocated. Which totally makes sense to me since where it is on mine it would just be sucking hot engine air.

MY question regards whether there is a kit for the 04 owners... or is there a well known mod that most of the 04 owners have done?

looking for advice, thanks.

My advice is to keep what you have...

Yes the 05 was changed to scoop air from the cab...

It also restricts air flow...less power...

Worst of all...the noise is a nightmare...

I constantly tell peeps to convert to 04 style intake to get rid of noise...increase power...

You can pipe air in from under the hood and get clean air w/o the noise...

It is possible to do that and have good power...but not best power...

We will have a custom air intake for sale on our website in the near future...

No air box... high-flow gauze air filter... and a carb tuning kit...

It's the most air/power a rhino can pull...virtually zero maintenance...makes access to carb for tuning super fast and easy...

Filter will have water repellent (not waterproof) outerwear...

Drawbacks are that a gauze filter even with a pre-filter outer cover does not filter as fine of particles as the oem foam filter when properly oiled and secured...also the airbox with the lid and foam filter is more quiet...although my method isn't much louder...and of course if you do a lot of water and serious mud you have to have an airbox...most people don't really need an airbox tho...

There are some aftermarket air intakes that draw from the cab...very loud is an understatement...

If you want an 05 intake...

I will trade you a well used 05 engine cover with air scoop and airbox snorkel for you conversion provided your engine cover is in very good condition...and you will have to pay for the shipping costs on both ways...

I can also sell you a snorkel and scoop...you should be able to cut a hole in your engine cover and install the scoop...not sure what the price would be...normally for stuff like that I say 50% of new plus shipping...

All purchases would have to be visa/mc set up thru our webstore....

Let me know if you want to buy or trade...

You can visit our webstore by clicking on the link in signature...

You can visit our vendor section in this forum as items that are for sale but not on our website yet appear there first...

Thanks for looking,
Craig

so you are saying that the best setup is the 2004 stock setup?

If so, I will take your word for it and leave it

I am saying that imo the one I will be selling is the best...

What you have now is the cheapest and easiest way to convert an air-flow restricted 05-07 painfully loud Rhino to a quieter one with more power....

The only draw back for you imo is the frequent filter cleaning and oiling...

But you can convert to mine later and eliminate that...

OEM...

Which I believe is made by UNI...

UNI also makes a higher flow 2stg stock replacement sleeve...

However, stock is the best filtration and it is a BIG filter so it gets good airflow...

I recommend having two or three foam sleeves if you are committed to foam...

Keep one clean and oiled and ready to install in a plastic bag...

One installed on the vehicle...and one in the wash/rinse/dry waiting to be oiled stage...

That way...you can soak a dirty one in Zep Orange cleaner, take out after a long soak, rinse it, let it air dry...that takes time...and it's easy if you let it soak...you always ready to roll with a clean filter...

I recommend pj-1 spray on filter oil....

And a racing windshield...

I have an 04 and yes i left the intake the same and just put a newer engine cover on it to help get a little more air to it. I run the uni filters and love em.

If you mod an 07 box to a 04 style will you need to re jet anything?
I would want to do this for noise purposes.

Yes and no...

As far as I am concerned every rhino with a carb needs to be tuned for best performance...

The 05-07 came with a 145 mainjet...

The 04 came with a 150 mainjet...

You are not going to be running dangerously lean because you removed the snorkel on the air box of an 05-07....

However, it probably is lean already...and will continue to be so...

Look at the electrode on your spark plug...

It will tell you what you need to know...

Check your plug first as is...if you can...time your 0-300' holeshot with a stop watch...and check your top speed with a gps...

Then remove the snorkel...repeat the test...then look at the plug again...

The results will tell you what you need to know...

I should have complete mikuni jet kits available by this weekend...if you are interested...

Thanks! Unfortunately it is difficult to test in the residential area I live in.
Anything I do will need to be tested in the dunes. five hour drive. I may just remove it and wait to try it. It looks like 1 clamp.

Question about the 04 airbox Lid. I am about to snorkel my rhino and I just saw where you said the 04 is different than the 05-up. My question is the Airbox lid on my 04 cracked and I am about to have to order a new on "Will a 05-up Airbox Lid fit on my airbox? Bc I am about to order a used one from a member Friday and want to make sure it will fit?
