    Vishnu DCI Install Question

    Hi guys,

    I installed my Vishnu DCI yesterday and it went pretty smoothly except I couldn't figure out a good way to get the battery cables/tubing out of the way. Specifically, one of the cables is touching the filter itself (not a lot of pressure, but holding the filter up slightly), and some of the other tubes are touching around the base area of the filter.

    Does this look alright? Should the tubes not be touching any part of the filter, or is that even possible? In the Vishnu paperwork that came with the DCI, it says to make sure "the circular clamps are not in contact with any part of the engine", so I'm not sure if that's related as well.

    Nope, your setup looks perfectly fine. The battery cables are going to somewhat touch no matter what. What the disclaimer said is just make sure the hose clamps for the intakes don't touch the actual engine.

    Thanks. I just don't want anything melting under there and it seems like touching the filter directly or the aluminum coupler would have a better chance of melting the tubing than the stock plastic airbox...

    Sorry, not sure what you mean. Are you talking about switching the intakes or are you talking about trying to run the tubing on the other side of the intake?

    2 things.
    1. the piping going into tube can probably be played with
    2. rear filter is "on top" of front, just switch

    the rear filter "rests" inside the front cone, if you switch them so the front filter rests inside the rear one, the rear filter will "drop" down maybe 1", would give more room around it.

    I'll reiterate my concern: I wasn't sure if rubbing against the filter or the aluminum filter coupling could melt/damage the tubing.

    My filters are actually mounted as in your first picture, and the holder for the cables over the engine has rubbed against and slightly damaged one filter, but it is tight and swapping them helps a little. I tend to put a piece of paper in between the cables and the cone when I take the cowl off to minimize this.
