    Default Exhaust tips

    Do I need to run a flapper in this exhaust tip? I don't see anywhere they could be attached from the inside and don't really want an external flap or is that my only choice?

    My opinion is no...but I want other people to weigh in...Camshaft might make a difference...mild cam no, wild cam maybe yes???

    If it's a mild cam then I would not worry a bit...I always park the boat nose out and I would recommend that...your ports are low in the transom so you've got maximum drop...good to go..IMO

    And if you DO run snails...I will personally consult an attorney and ponder legal recourse...just my thoughts...

    Just some words to ponder..."always flaps before snails"...

    The Spico I got has Supertrapps in the exhaust tips... should work about the same as flappers...

    I believe Glenwood Marine Equipment can supply you with brand new exhaust trumpets, with a flapper, which attaches inside of the trumpet, so it's fairly attractive because the flapper is hidden. I have a pair for my own ski flatbottom. Personally, I like the "burble" of thru-transom exhausts at the waterline...flapped or not. I think I would do all in my power to avoid having to use exhaust risers ( "snails" )just from a purely visual standpoint.....jet boaters use risers, but if you have a jet boat, it's a foregone conclusion you're not worried about visual cool anyway....

    I thought that if the motor sat high enough in the boat so that the exhaust ports were above the water line there wouldn't be a way for the water to get into the heads? Seems that it would be an uphill battle for the water....
    I'll paddle my flat before I drive anything else!
