As some of you know, I have been thinking of routing my air intake to the front and decided to remove the floor pan (small piece which covers the drive shaft under the gas pedal, about 7 screws) on my unit noticed two things quickly: a) too tight for a hose/pipe to come through there and b) mud attached the drive shaft.

I have no idea if the amount of mud really mattered in this particular case, but it could make it out of balance it allowed to accumulate and may be worth cleaning it from time-to-time, see picture below.

Dirty Picture, keep in mind I do not really mud ride and the unit has 13 hours

I know that the 570 is changed a bit on the routing of the various hoses, wiring, and drive shaft, but as I remember this area has actually been tidied up a bit and there may actually be a bit more room for an intake hose then how the intake was routed through this area on the original 400/500 models
If you are really looking to move the intake forward under the hood, the factory parts should be available for the 400/500 with a simple extension of the hose to allow for the extra length of the Crew and the rearward location of the 570.
One thing you may want to consider in doing this...I found out early with my 400 that the forward location of the pre-filter box, while doing a great job of filtering dust, was highly susceptible to water intake even in moderate water crossings and easily flooded the main filter! After a couple times on the hook, I snorkeled my 400 and put an end to my intake issues once and for all!

Cheers
