    Squirtcha?
    Setting the intake is the one thing that I didn't do myself on my new to me boat. Just didn't want to take any chances with something so critical. I paid $450 and got great peace of mind that it was done right. The boat has been run up to almost 90 mph and it's as stable as can be.

    If I had done something else incorrectly it wouldn't have been a huge deal. Setting the intake wrong could be disastrous.

    Good idea!!!

    You'll probably be happier with the final product that way.

    I would have loved to have taken it somewhere, but I didn't have that kind of money to spend on it at the time, so I had to do it myself. Plus, the closest place to me is HTP in MO, like 500 miles away. And that's a lot of gas. If I do it again, it's going to Duane at HTP to get done right.

    But, don't get me wrong, I am extremely pleased with how mine turned out, and I am very confident in how it is set in the boat.

    I'm 20, first boat.

    But, I'm very hands on, and I believe that if someone else can do it, then so can I (except for wiring).

    If you're not confident about getting into it, then have a pro do it. You don't want to screw this part of the boat up.

    Good luck.

    Yes, not an easy task, but well worth the money saved, IMO. Who mechanically inclined are you? I spent a week researching the process and measuring it all out and looking everything over, before finally setting the intake in place. The important thing is to get it in the straight, at the right depth, and at the right angle. Just talk to some of the experts, and you'll be fine. I've heard real good things about Jack at MPD for advice for setting the intake. I never got around to calling him, but I've heard nothing but good things.

    Good luck.

    thanks I'll give a shot, i just don't want to f><k my boat and have it "shut down" like crap, if i do it wrong. but if its just a matter of adjusting it flush with the keel, I can do that.
    thanks for the help man.

    if i can save $300-$600 by doing it myself i would like too, but if has to be done by someone whit the exacting standards from NASA then it is what it is.
    Any info would be great.
    Thanks
    I did my own intake, I'll let you know how I did when I put it in the water here shortly.

    Here's a link to my thread. It wanders a bit as usual.
