    Default Performance Alternative to Glenwood Logs and Snails??

    Hey Guys,

    Wanted to get some opinions on what are some upgrade options to those Glenwoods...

    Here is my boat specs so you know what I have for a boat and engine:

    20.5 Carerra Elite
    454 4-Bolt
    Oval Port heads
    RPM Air-Gap 2 intake (Just installed last night)
    Holley 750 not DP But has a bunch of work done to it..

    Thanks

    If you already have the holes in the transom...you might want to try through transom headers. Maybe a high rise set of water cooled as well...

    Yes, that is what I am looking for Kruns...

    When I when to a mom and pop shop yesterday to pick up my Fuel/Water separator I was talking with the guy and we were chatting about some different engine components. When I told him I had the Glenwood Logs he cringed, telling me that my engine choke point was that exhaust, and that they dont breathe very well.

    I cant remember what he said was the best bang for the buck, but I remember him telling me he could probably get them for about $1600 for the set... I figured by posting someone might already have knowledge on what would be a good upgrade from those logs, thats all...

    I just called and asked him...He said they are Eddie Marine (EMI) Headers

    Lightning Water Jacketed work great and are very reasonable. They look cool too.

    Yes, it has an engine cover...And yes, you are right on that, they are a lot of money, but I just wanted to tread that water for a sec to see what options were available...

    Yes, they are still considered Manifolds...
