    Default Guru with 2" intake

    OK... When I built my UDS, I used a single 2" (or maybe 1.75") intake pipe with a butterfly valve on the top.

    Is there an adapter for a guru that I can use with that?
    Will it just be better if I put a 3/4 ball valve in the bottom for a guru?

    A pic for illustration:

    Can you think of an easy way to neck down the intake to 3/4" NPT?

    You could also use a bulkhead inducer instead of adding a ball valve is you want to cut a new hole.

    Let me know if I can be of help on the Guru.

    I will see what I can find to make an adapter down to 3/4" npt.

    I will order the guru from you once I get it figured out.

    Thanks Tim!! I will post what I dream up...

    You could weld a cast 2" pipe plug in the end and drill it and tap it for 3/4" NPT like they do for the 1 1/2" stumps/viking adapter.
