Without making the opening larger I would expect little, if any change. Our DSDP runs about 15 with a new filter and up to 22 if pushed hard. Looks like I'm going to have to go to a larger filter and inlet tubing as I don't want to go to a K&N or aFe filter and let twice as much dust in. Shouldn't be a hard job but I will have to have some fittings welded into a new alum tube.
My present filter is the small Ecolite rated at 1200 cfm, which is supposed to be enough for an ISL and we have the smaller ISC but pushing 35 psi rather than the stock 25 psi.

Been crazy busy weekend so I have not been able to get back on here.

So as other thought the filter minder still sucks down. Found I was able to get it to suck down just by power breaking. Also did a reset and take off as soft as I can then go Wot past 60mph and it still sucked down. Next test will to pull the 90deg coupler that runs up the side of the motor home so I can be sucking straight into the filter. If that still pulls it down I will remove the filter and do a few no filter pulls just to test if the filter minder location is just bad engineering and i am really wasting my time

Really all the water coming down the side of the motor home in that area sucks water in so I don't see the scoop sucking that much more. Plus there is water drains built into the 90deg before the intake.

I do know a 5.9 can take over 1500cc water jet which is around 1 gal per min. I am sure the 8.3 can take more.

The only time water will go in is while going down the road under load so I don't see pooling as a problem.

I do feel like it might get to 70 mph faster with the scoop. My guys at the shop made fun of me for that comment.

Just got done with a 400mi trip pulling a trailer with a Jeep Cherokee on it full of camping supply's. So around 7k being towed with trailer and Jeep.

Doubt my scoop did much but after reading our Cummins MPG book. I drove a little different . Still got up to speed pretty fast and cursed around 62mph.

I filled up at the same station facing the same way. I ended up with 8.5mpg.

Hopping the inj pump timing will get her over 9mpg.

Random data.

So today I called spartan trying to learn more about my Cassie hopping there was a more specific book on how the fan, hyd and stuff about the caisse was built. Was told that they are one-off and there is noting :( They did tell me in that year my fan speed was one level. No high our low. Said people have added 2 speed controllers but he seemed pretty vague about it.
