Wiring harness was giving me problems on Port. Now its not getting full boost, ordered new bypass valve and a coil to see where the problem is. Damn gremlins. Runs great to around 4800 and jumps up on plane like a Biatch!!! Its ridiculous!

Oh. this is s good one!! After a couple weeks of trying to figure out why I couldnt get over 5k rpms.. I bought another fuel gauge, tied the boat to the dock (lifted the lift so the motor would cavitate) so I could test wot fuel pressure. It spiked to 60psi!! so that was working!

Then I decided to change plugs, even thought I had just done that prior to the NO Start issue.

WELL!!!!!!!!!!!!

Most plugs were barely tight, but at least 2 of them were not seated on the head. No pressure at all to remove!!

So... gremlins resolved. Loose spark plugs!! OMG!!

Was a lil rough to be in the lake testing wot, but I did hit 78 during 1 pass, but I may have been going down wind in 2ft chop. Will finish setting up to find best all around height, but runs Great!
1/2 fuel and just me in boat.

Handles better than the I/O.

also. I need to run this MPG again now that i have full compression, but this is what I had with loose plugs on stb motor
43mph @ 1.69mpg
47mph @ 1.59 mpg
50mph @ 1.53 mpg
55mph @ 1.35mpg.

Ill rerun these speeds once I get the find the perfect height w/ best slip numbers.
Above it was betwen 14 and 16, but I/Os, I could get down to 12.
I also need to figure out the best trim height as it doesnt need a lot of trim with the added leverage of being 3ft back!
