    Modifiying electrical systems, installing LED's in place of bulbs, fine tuning motors and remove unnecessary crap from the boat. Also adding some form of air induction to feed motors directly from outside air.
    Want your ECU tuned right?? Call Mark at Precision

    2. Raise motor & Drive 1.5", or find a shorter leg for the Bravo 1....havent decided which one to do yet.

    3. Cam out the 454

    4. Ordered 177 Weiland Supercharger with Holley 850

    5. Complete Repaint

    Just to name a few of my plans

    Long duck dong, might as well add an inter-cooler to get full benefit from blower.

    Fix a soft spot in cockpit floor.
    Do away with carpeted cockpit floor and lay glass and non skid gel.
    Build new engine hatch w/ 2 small scoops.
    Fix a few small scratches and nicks and possibly spray some graphics.(if I can decide on something. so if anyone wants to play with photoshop and desing something I can post a pic)
    Redo the dash w/ carbon fiber and new guages.
    have one of the skegs repaired.
    Possible new cockpit interior if funds are available, don't really need it but the white is a tad faded.
    Would like to paint the trailer but it is galvanized steel. Does anyone know of a primer to use with galvanized steel so I can paint it?
    New rubrail.
    Tint windshield.
    Let someone else change my impellers I'm not gonna try and squeeze in there! And I'm a skinny feller!
    Probably find reasons to bug mobilemercman some more while fixing other misc. things!
