Re: 07 660....wanna move the air intake under the hood

badley and I have the same setup. I did find a 08 airbox off of ebay that doubled the air filter size. If you need to you can contact me to take a look.

A half windshield is the best at limiting du[font=Arial:60fab23d5e] [/font:60fab23d5e] st. I have never been able to prevent it either.

         is there many modifications to convert a 2008 airbox and air intake to a 2006 660 rhino?

Sure....get the 2.5" tubing and have at it.....moving the filter w/box or just the filter ? Mine runs so much better and actually is a bit quieter even with the Lexx muff....money well spent for me !

With a 2008 airbox you will need to drill holes in the frame to mount the air box. I think I only did the front air box holes to mount. The tubing I used ABS slip bushings and pipe keeping my original air box (without filter)in place and coming out the front, through the tunnel and up to 08" air box. I only used about 5' of tubing.

The 08" air box will have double the size of filter allowing twice the air flow and limiting the vacuum from the intake to draw smaller particulates through it. I would highly recommend keeping the drain tube off of this box since it is shaped like a sink and water will enter it if slashes up the firewall.

I have had that cylinder full of water from this mod and it was my own fault for not watching the tubes abrasion points. (thanks for pulling me out again Badley!) I would also wrap the tube going through the tunnel and remove or protect ANY area of concern.

Please feel free to ask me anything for this mod. It works great if you do it correctly! 8)

the air filter box of the 08 i understand allright, i was just wondering about the air tube of the 2008  rhino being used that comes from the throttle body that if would be possible using that instead of the abs thus eleminating the original filter box.

If it is the stock complete intake I would use it. You might have to modify slightly for the EFI but easy to do with ABS fittings and a lathe if needed. Using slip fittings like couplings and some pipe you can create an air tight seal with some creativity too. :idea:  I actually tried making my own tunnel tubing but had a odd shaped and deformed ABS pipe when I was done. lol

BTW, shop EBay for your 08' box. I got mine for under 50 with filter new. If you get the duct too for under 150 you have a screamin' deal!
