    Thumbs up Got to take the Top Gun for a spin!!!!

    We finally had an afternoon that was nice enough to take the `Gun for a spin! The lake temp is still pretty cold and the oil temp guages only read 140 deg. but all went well I seems to idle well when it warms up and doesn`t load up.We cruised around at 3-4k and all seems fine, got on it a little but I`m afraid of getting on it with the oil temp so low. I want the Keith Eikert oil thermostats to reduce warm up time,(takes about 20 mins at these temps)
    But other than that we love it!

    My wife and I spent the afternoon on the water today and had a blast The oil temp got up to 200 when I was on it for a little bit but at cruise(3500 rpm) it was around 160. Still loads up a little after extended no wake zones (fowled 2 plugs) I am going to turn the idle screws in some more. Otherwise I am very happy with the new toy although my wife likes the Baja better!
