I know this topic has been discussed a lot. I bought a Silent Hektik regulator and am getting ready to install it. Earlier this year, I saw a post from a fellow that did a really nice job installing a Silent Hektik. He routed the blast tube from the left side of the engine, taping into the big air duct that supplies the radiator. He put a hole in the top in front of the radiator and then routed the blast tube to the sheet metal cover on the top of the regulator. It was very well done and he included several pictures of the installation. He said he positioned the hole for the blast tube so that he still had room to install a Bender Baffle, if he decides to do so it the future.
My problem is I have searched for, and can't find that post and his pictures. Can someone help me find that post and pictures?
Thanks so much.
