    Default Basset question

    Hey guys im Adam and im new to jet boats. I just got a pioneer w a 496 and twistys and noticed there are holes at the bottums of each bend by the water ports. Is that the way there supposed to be or did someone do this to them for a purpose? I know its probably a simple one for you guys

    they are there to let the excess water run out so they don't rust

    And it's always good practice to spray WD40 up in those holes to keep them from rusting closed!
    You'll get other feedback but a quick tip...raw water out the back is too much water, it should only be a fine mist...AND...zero water to the headers at idle and under 1800 rpm.
