    thanks guys, so i plan on buying some OT headers for a little more performance to start. with the delta bottom and my JC pump, are there any mods that i could do in the mean time before i get my pumped re-worked for some more speed?

    i plan on doing a JG bowl swap and possibly pulling the intake for machining of a shoe and rideplate this winter.

    motor wise, i dont plan on much any time soon but possibly springtime i would consider H/C/I swap.

    NICE, I got the same Make & Model. I might be interested in your thru transom exhaust, when you switch them out.

    I would keep the thru transom. They make headers for that. They cost a bill more, but they work just as well, a lot cleaner looking, sound just as good, and makes it better to hear things. Doing some port work should work out well with the manifolds. Less crap about noise too. Thats the big thing!!

    Very clean boat.

    Diverter and grate, maybe. I have the delta bottom with a JG. I saw 80 on GPS with maybe 450hp. Has a bad porpoise that comes on around 65. Have to bury the bow to settle it down.

    When my intake comes out it will get set back and the bottom will get a spoon.

    Nice boat!! Looks like the same engine that came in mine...

    I debated on OT headers also, so I found a set of used ones just to try out. Turns out I really like them a lot. They do have baffles in them which helps out with the noise. Only bad thing is that they make everyone think my boat does 120 mph and I have to tell them it's more like 75, lol
    They definately look baddazz though

    Oh yea, first and pretty much only time on the water with them and I already burned my knee pretty good. Something to keep in mind...

    Another thing...I kept my TT exhaust tips and use them for water dumps. Just made some plugs and tapped them for hose barbs. That way I can switch back easily whenever I want to...
