    what im looking for is the specs of how much to machine the intake, i know that i have lots of choices for shoes but is their a standard amount you machine off the intake and tap for mounting or are they all different? im guessing that somebody has the measurments so i can machine the intake while i have my mill setup (im moving soon and wont have it for a few months)

    Best thing to do is call MPD and buy a shoe/rideplate ... talk to Jack tell him you want to machine the intake yourself.

    As soon as you have the shoe, you can use it for measurements.

    Good Luck. I found it easier to send it to them and have them do it.

    I guess the reason I use MPD is because I hang with a bunch of MPD guys and they have a bunch of MPD shoes and shims, so if there will ever be a hardware change needed, I can borrow/trade different combinations as I need them.

    I am all for doing it on your own ... but there are things I am good at, and things I'm not. They have it down, just like Tom at JBP does ... another good choice for parts & service.

    I usually get all my parts from Tom, no offense to MPD im not in cali and i just dont know them, im sure several people make good ones.. im not sure which hull im going to use, i may get a old nordic or if that doesnt work ill stick with my charger. thus im not really sure of the combo, but im moving back to Florida next month and i have lots of work coming up with the superbowl back in town, so i was hoping to get as much done as i can now..thats why i was kinda hoping to find measuments like the diagram above, if i had that with the bottom part which looks like it shows the bolt hole locations i could machine it now and figure out where to start with which ever hull...
    the part i guess i need to know is are they compatable between JBP, MPD whoever can i switch between them or am i stuck with one persons and just keep changing with those or shimming or whatever? im guessing it takes somedialing in to get it right?

    they are typically not compatiable between others. as i believe Tom, jack, duane and the others make there own shoe's to there own specs.

    since your set on doing it yourself i would buy the shoe and work from there.
