Spent the weekend on the dyno programming the Holley HP EFI for my 454's.
This a graph of dyno headers w/ mufflers no flame arrestor vs CMI E-Tops and flame arrestor.

Made it out to the boat for a bit tonight. Installed new steering fittings and new stainless hoses.
Also solved the problem I had earlier of not being able to reach the nuts on the back of the upholstery inside the freeboard.

The stainless hoses look very nice on there and I did the same thing with the speaker hole myself. There was no way I could reach that nut up front on the panel stud. I bought new steering hose and chrome plated brass fittings for my steering as well. Also sent my brass 90's to the plating shop and had them chromed. They were super inexpensive @ $4.00 each to plate, because they can run them with other jobs. I you ever want anything like that done let me know. and I will put you in contact.

I'd love to get chrome on there, but I might not even have enough time to get my throttles redone. Once summer is here I might lose interest and just break out the Panther. lol

It's funny you mention throttles... I had my throttle base plate and knobs refinished and I polished out the chrome handles. Finally got around to assembling them and saw the new billet Livorsi cant forward controls and ended up ordering them. Mine sold within a few hours and brought almost what cost is on new ones.
