85' Js550 without a water box

Hey guys,

I just picked up a 1985 JS550 and it looks like there is no water box in it. It has the stock exhaust and looks like it just has a long tube wrapping around the front to the side port for the exhaust.
It is healthy for this ski to run w/o a water box? Or should I pick one up and out it in.
Any advice helps!
Thank you

People think it's cool, but !!! I imagine it's pretty loud without the water box. I would get one and put it in. Might even look around for a aftermarket box.
