    who said the lower nostrils weren't cold? they are getting the same air as the ws6 hood nostrils. there should be a sealed kit that allows all 4. that would make a bigger difference at high speeds. since all nostrils are coming from same direction, they wouldn't hurt airflow. its just the air coming from the bottom that hurts it. blocking off the lower nostrils just makes no sense.

    The JAAM Ram Air doesn't block the lower nostrils. It tries to use them more efficently.

    well you can use bold, but It doesn't seem you know what your talking about.

    The JAAM uses a diverter that helps to divert the air flow from the lower nostrils up to the air filter that it places at a different angle. They also advocate the removal air diverters in the upper 2 nostrils. which makes it a strait line for water to get in.

    The statement was that he wanted to MAKE a block off so water couldn't come strait in.

    This is getting comical. I'm the one who wants ideas for a removable rain baffle or block off. But honestly I may not really need one.
    Speed Psychosis is talking about something different. He wants to use all 4 nostrils for a cold air/ram air induction. I believe, he thinks (and 4get gto ) the JAAM Ram Air blocks the bottom nostrils. It does not. Like you said steve, the kit comes with a diverter plate to help use all 4 nostrils.

    Have you taken them out.. just use a drill bit and kill the rivets ( carefully though. I kept my old pieces and picked up some wing nuts and bolts that i could hold on to the other end of. they fit right through the origional holes. It's kind of a pain in the ass to put them on. but there is no really descent way to block off the bottom air ducts so water still Could get in. you could take a piece of plastic and block off the back part of the two top ram air holes.

    I have actually put some thought into getting a cutting wheel and making the back side more open. so even more air can get in. This isn't really for HP.. just to make me feel good. If it gets super bad just take some duck tape and block off the top nostrils.. you won't be going wide open throttle in the rain anyway right?

    Yeah I got the baffles out of the hood and thats where I assume the water is getting in, but I suppose it could also come in the bottom nostrils too, especially with the diverter plate there now. I was hoping to maybe have a velcro in panel or something quick I could use on a rainy day, but now I'm thinking I don't need one. I mean yesterday was super rainy and the water didn't make it pass the filter. Maybe I'll just leave it the way it is.
    Does any one have any pics of the BG ram air thing with the rain baffles?

    i dont want to do anything i dont have a ws6 lol. i was just putting in my opinion that the lower nostrils are good for flow. im not arguing over the kit either as i have never seen it. i was just commenting on what the other guy said (which had made me think it blocked the lowers).
