Heard that I can pick up speed by cutting out every other grate bar will this work? I only have a 360 motor will I see any pick up?

I'm no pro, but I thought when I owned a panther they were plagued with "overcharging" the intake at higher speeds. So that would hurt not help.

ok, ive had two boats with panther jets, both were very manuverable and low matinence pumps, however they were never made to go fast, dont cut the grate i did it and lost 5-6mph, i was pissed, what speeds are you getting now, you need a big block, that 360 isnt helping either..........

thats good for what you got, make sure the gates opening all the way. On two of my boats it wasnt and i was told thats a common problem on panthers, also the panther jet o vator is junk, dont waste ur money, i saw one at canyon, and i could piss higher and further than that thing could throw..........:D:D

It has a small adjustable ride plate. Steers funny seems like when it comes off plate falls on the falls on edge and kicks you back the other direction makes it hard to make a gradual turn.

Tom's (JBP) panther energizer helped mine quite a bit. It also allows you to add droops and diverters.
