    brother wolf, is your pump an E pump? Have you tried messing with the ride plate to get the nose down a little? I did just a hair and made a big difference, along with a place diverter of course. But i'm no Bennett.

    Nope JC-A with a place diverter, the diverter did make a huge improvement but need the rear up just a little more.....going to get a split bowl and droop and maybe a ride plate and see what happens

    Here's our Latest, and hopefully the Last if I can get it to do everything I want it to do. Plans are to put together this Twin Turbo BBC Motor that I have sitting here and then put the Turbo motor in the boat, along with a major Pump rebuild and upgrade.
