    Hey Mike. Thanks for the reply on that. Not really worried about the fish and birds since there seem to be an over abundance in the neighborhood.

    I am curious as to how this tube would exit the engine houseing or the air box housing without adding an additional hole with a drill. I will leave it be and look into it the next time I change the air filter.
