If you have a pic will you post it? I think I am going to try that after I get my dash and sticks back in. Hopefully that will be this weekend if the powdercoater get them done!
Thanks!

I'm really surprised that this thread died so quickly....I'll throw another of my upgrades in the mix, maybe others will join in.

It was the Spring of 2008 and the goal was to make the Bird Fly a little faster...

Yank the motors and pull off both of the transom assemblies....

Next was to get out the check book and pick up a few go fast parts.

New IMCO inner transom assemblies and 12" extension boxes!

And a pair of Mercury Racing Sportmaster 2" Shorties, polished to a high luster. (Found out later that the shine was only good for a couple of days in the water...now they are brushed finish)

And the finished Transom. With the new Latham steering extensions for the boxes and their special drive showers in the bracket.

Then a complete re-rig to the engine compartment moving all of the wiring and hoses into a more uniform pattern. The engines freshend up and dynoed making around 650hp each on a conservative tune-up and running 89 octane fuel. New fuel pumps, Demon Marine carbs, 10 quart oil pans, 3" oil coolers, all new fule lines and oil lines larger to handle the extra power as well. Plus the usual AXA---Bling to make it stand apart from the rest...
