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.
