Have '97 POLARIS XC600 triple with 38mm carbs. What carb adustments needed to eliminate air box and go to aftermarket individual filters? Thanks

Don't go pods, all pods do is suck in hot air from the engine compartment. The air box pulls in cold air from outside which is a lot better then hot air going into the carburetors. No one is going to recommend doing that switch.

There is NO need to filter a snowmobile air.
I went to great length to duct the incoming Cold air from the hood opening for the head light to the air box, gained like 6 hp!

The other issue is snow/water ingestion. Airbox gives a dead air space in front of the carbs (that is why it is so big), Allows snow, water, debris to drop to the bottom of the box.
