    Default Snoot

    Hi guys I am new to the jet boating world and I am wondering how much a snoot would help my overall performance? I have a 79 taylor sj with a 505 Chevy, stainless ( I think b impeller) it will twist 6k. It also has a placediverter and its in the jf berkley pump

    If it has a 12je pump a je shoe and ride plate kit along with a properly trimmed je loader will do more for mph.been there done that with same boat.

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    what type of speed did you see out of your boat? when I bought this boat I wasn't expecting it to pull near as hard as it does and was really suprised. I haven't used a gps on it yet but the previous owner said it would do 92 but I didn't think so. I have only held it wot for about 4 sec and it feels like its skipping across the water so its fast enough for me but there is always faster.

    i am very doubtful about the 92 MPH, maybe 82 with the wind and current, 70s in an SJ is fast. Good boats

    i would save the few hundred bucks that a droop costs, and buy gas and beer and enjoy!
    Domino effect if you want a droop, you have to buy a different bowl, then you will want to high rooster tail for fun, then you buy wedges,
    run the J pump, with the diverter, maybe add a loader

    I just now thought about this but do you remember what RMP you was running in the mid 80's? Thanks for the advice it really helps

    Here's one I made by cutting a standard Berkeley adapter in half. Then inserted a 6" nominal pipe in between that I tapered. I added the thick flat stock for strength. No porpoise, and the steering is awesome. I made it a bit longer than the norm typically seen in production. My boat rides really nice with it. I am not running a wedge and it just works, good. Cost me $50 and some time.

    thank you, I appreciate the comment ! It's not machined obviously, but I gave it a whirl with the tools I do have.
