    Default Tooo loud

    I finally have the 85 Eliminator Daytona I bought last Oct together and running. Whats the best way to quiet over transom Bassets. It sounds great but I would like my son to be able to hear. Does anyone have any experience with the Basset inserts or have a set for sale?

    thats bout as quiet as yer gonna get them. Are you running them dry or wet? If its too loud you may want to consider through the transoms...

    I will be running them wet. I'd hate put holes inthe transom, or buy headers. I havent had it to the lake yet and I am on call next weekend so I have to wait two weeks to find out how much quieter the water will make them. thanks

    If you haven't had the water go through it you may change your mind at how loud it is once its on the lake and water is running through them. Mine are loud, but not obnoxious.

    Sounds like I'll just have to wait to get it in the lake before I spend any money. Thanks for the replies.

    That's for water jacketed, right?


    Injected Bassett thru transoms are about $1100.

    Yep thats about how much a set of water jacketed headers go for, TT bassets are about as loud as OT bassets, except when the boat is off of plane.

    Remind your seven year old that them pipes get HOT. Then get yourselves some earplugs and have fun all Summer. Not like you gunna be conversing when powering on the lake... But if you can afford the lightings , good luck. Congrates on the Daytona
