I have a set of Gale Banks turbo risers that are set up for waste gates, including steel adapter plates. No waste gates included, these had a pair of older Richard Lee type, but I am reasonably sure that more economical (and more modern) waste gates are available. $250
Replumbing a late 70's jet with stock BBC, thru transom logs/snails, Dominator pump. Looks like the T takes 3/4" water hose in (hose barb fitting) and out to 5/8" (hose barb).
Should I use 3/4" hose from pump to T then 5/8" on either side of the T to logs, block and snails?
Regarding the gate...

Our Dirty boat
Can anyone with experience of boating in the Bay and going out past the Golden Gate please post or PM me. I would like to pick your brain as far as where to launch, the conditions, good times of year to go out, fog and what to look out for. How about going to the Farallon Islands?
Just wondering why I wouldn't want to plumb my boat so that my gate valve off the jet is up by the drivers seat instead of back by my headers. I think I give up on the thermostate kit.Just curious what others are doing.
