    Default anyone run manifolds with risers?

    i recently came across a set of alum manifolds with risers... i REALLY hate the way my logs and snails looked so ive been looking. i know theres outlaw with his bad ass blown motor... but thats in a daytona. just curious how this is going to look...



    i do like that theyre 4" and that allows me to change my tips to some 4" from cpperformance which will let me run a silencer so when im just cruising around in the harbor i can do so a little quieter.

    if u have anything or have a pic of a setup like this please post it up...

    All tow boats such as Mastercraft ,CC ran that style, I have them on my little ski. Besides being heavy they do run great. There was someone on the forum had alumnium ones for sale.

    here's a set-up that's somewhat similar to give you an idea-

    This picture is of his mock set-up. He's pulling it all apart to get it all polished up in the next few days.

    By the looks of the ends....salt water was run through em. You can ad a small piece of hose on your snails now to equal out the 4". I have 3 1/2 ss tips with internal flappers. The snails I have now had the step down allowing 3 or 3 1/2. I just cut off the 3"

    yeah they were on a salt boat but the manifolds themselves were in a closed cooling system with coolant, not salt. they're nice and clean inside, the ports are black with no signs of water. just the risers were ugly. ive already hit em up with a wire wheel and got em down to metal and they cleaned up fairly well.

    i've always liked the stainless tube risers over the elbows that are on there now. it looks better to me anyways. now you could run a covered engine.

    oh yeah i love those too. thats how my dads old boat was. ive been looking trying to find a manufacturer that does replacements but havent had much luck. it shouldnt be THAT hard i just have to find a plate that has the bolt holes drilled in the same spots... theres no water passages in em.

    all cleaned up minus that one spot. gonna hit em up with a final sanding to get rid of the final salt and then its time to look on coatings.

    anyone have samples of what powdercoat "chrome" might look like? or would it be better to go with ceramic coatings? maybe just spray em black?
