    Sure, here you go...
    1 - Yes, it is a stock 05 496 HO
    2 - Flattop Marine in Havasu
    3 - No. Just added a Sea Strainer with it's own pickup for the Chiller. This is a important point as Whipple will tell you to tap the incoming water pickup but that cause the motor to loose water preasure and overheat.
    4 - None so far..
    5 - 91. If I ever have any old gas left in over the winter then I top it off with AV Gas.
    6 - I have a XR drive so it has been fine. I went up four sizes on my prop to a 28.
    7 - 5 lbs
    8 - Almost 15 mph..

    Hope this helps... To me it was worth the money. The boat is turnkey every weekend and is a blast to drive.

    Cheers,

    Just another day in paradise.

    Thumbs up

    For me, everything is the same as Buster except I installed it myself (with e-mail support from TPI), and I did switch from the stock 5" long oil cooler to a 12" cooler of the same diameter.

    Drive it smart and it will last. (and make you do this a lot )

    I really think that this set can work with the proper guides. Stay within the perameters of the motor. Temps are a huge. So is fuel. If done right, the motor will last!!!

    About $7K for the kit plus another $1+K for rigging hardware,sea strainer, guages, etc. Could be more if you don't have hydraulic steering, good drive, etc.
