    hay chris, (CS19) would you please explain to us when this becomes a necessary mod. And, what perf differences can one expect to see? I'm sure the average boater would see no difference but, IDK Thank you sir.

    Here's some before/afters of HTP's work, to show the difference. There is a lot of grinding, and specialized grinders involved, along with many,many hours!

    The liberals are asking us to give Obama time. We agree and think 25 to life would be appropriate.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here and ASSume that for most of the average squirt boats; this would be an unnecessary mod. This is reserved for guys that have done just about EVERY mod and tested and tuned more than the average boater. This is for max effort race boats that are looking for tenths of a second or maybe even 1 or 2 mph. I could be wrong, but there are a lot of other areas to spend money on before getting this detailed. Now, I have no idea how much the labor was but I can tell you that with current shop rates, us average guys will think twice. Having said that , I have no clue how many hours it took to create this piece of fine artwork!

    When i had a jet boat(was just a regular river boat)I had jack at mpd do some detailing work on the bowl not a full race deal but a rec boater job as well as detail the impeller and the change was very noticable.My rpm dropped and speed picked up 2 mph.Was way more effecient.this was over 10 years ago and at the time price was very reasonable and probably the best money spent.

    These days guys like chris are finding every lil thing on these jets to improve
