    Looks like you are doing a great and thorough job Brayden! You should ditch work and test it at Havasu at the end of the month when I'll be there!

In the pic none or the gauges are mounted yet, just sitting there.
    The pods are very cool. First time Ive seen them. The pods look as if they are powdercoated to match your other gauge bezels.

    If you look to the right you can see the template I made to lay them out. When I got done they all fit and lined up strait!!! It's still scary drilling a ton of holes in the top of your dash, but I think they look good there.

    You're getting close and it's looking real nice. Boating in the high 40's? Me too if I just Whippled mine.

    PS What are you using to mount the new gauges?

    Well got more done this weekend. Getting really close. Got all the dash and gauges done and whipple said that my ecm should be here monday. I'm thinking that I should be able to fire this thing off this next week. Next weekend there should be some water testing. Then I still have to start on the rear hatch and seat mods. But I'm leaving all of this off till I'm happy with the install and tuneing of the motor. Here are some more pic along the way

    Reversion is simply "backflushing", if you will. Be it exhaust, water, or both.

A little exhaust gets pushed backward through the system.

    The further along the tract it gets, the more restriction there is. Some are so bad that the bottom of the throttle blades of a carburetor are black.

    It can also come from a combo of exhaust and cam overlap. Overlap is not an issue with an HO cam, though.
    Thanks for the explanation. You must have much better eyes than I as I can't see inside the ports to determine their color. If we were dealing aluminum heads I would understand and agree.

    Again, thanks

    PS I also thought that the term 'reversion" generally referred to water ingestion

    Argh! Why can't MFGs just put on some efficient exhaust from the start?!

    I just got some more stuff form dana, rex and eddie this week so this weekend will be bussy.I'm having alot of fun doing it but you are right it's a very big project. There is so much detail that seams to take lots of time. But I also have some time on my hands. Maybe I can get it out this next weekend, maybe????

    That is quite a project to tackle yourself. Its nice to mess with the boat during the winter, really shortens the off season.
