    Well it took a lot longer than I expected but it was worth the wait for me to do things right. A hundred here a hundred there and its a great feeling to know all the hard work pays off. I am happy with how it turned out I just have to get to work with a mothers ball and get some stuff coated but it runs great and I am back on the water!

    Quite noticeable considering I had three people in it and a full ice chest. Still got tuning bugs to work out but it should run pretty well once im done.

    If it's pumping hot water through that box on top of the intake I would disconnect that.
