    Came with a factory Tornado:jester: It was actually quite useful...it slowed the flow of water into the intake enough for it to run out the water drain.

    No where as well as I would have liked I ended up like 5th or 6th in a class of 11. 4 guys broke/wrecked. The pits were really thick Sat and the secondarys wouldn't open and sunday mornings monsoon filled the pits with water( enough that when I bogged out I had 3" of water in the cab) making every pass a risky endeavour for the engine.
    Luckily we got the secondarys to open up by bending the choke tang over but the alternator gave up and I ran out of juice during my final run. Never made it out of the pits once, did make 188' in the harder pit( only 2 trucks made it out in my class). My buddy Seth also ran the truck and got the easy lane in the afternoon both days and made 2 full pulls.

    Will add pics and vids in another thread once I have some sent to me as I had no camera:(

    More tuning and water proofing needed before the next bogs Sept 3&4. I was so disapointed in how the truck performed I decided to go full on, no more fwonking around! I was gonna keep it road legal but part of the "on road drivability" kills it in the pits. Look for rad relocation, fuel cell, and hopefully some motor/trans/tcase work and or swap over the winter.
