The Club Car DS Intake Hose is the first thing that is attached to the airbox. It is the first passage that air takes into the engine after being sucked past the air filter. Having the proper amount of airflow is very critical. If you have too much or too little, vital components on the golf cart can fail. Your fuel system, for example, requires a solid airflow to run the carburetor and the fuel pump. Without them, no gas gets drawn from the tank. This is why components of the intake system are critical. Even one small hole can make it to where the caddie struggles or will not run at all. Checking these things is something everyone should make a part of their weekly cart checklists.This golf cart intake hose will work for the 1992-2015 Club Car DS models. Specifically, the carts that run an OHV Kawasaki engine. If you have the older side valve, please call an expert at Buggies Unlimited to figure out what you need.
