So far we don't need them in Mississippi, Louisiana

We will see when we go to Emerald Beach poker run, but I think there not enforcing it there either.

But I can see it coming and will have to get them soon or later.When it first bust off with no water its loud.In thr boat the blower whine is louder that the exhaust


2001 388 Hustler
It has the CMI's with wet tips stock.
500 efi Whipple 3.3 4.5 pulley 779hp
. 4.0 pulley 867hp

I think the DP is close to a stock 500efi at Idle only

Mufflers are going to suck

I have IMCO gatlin mufflers on my 2005 HP525EFI's. I would rather not have any mufflers, but I got them because of the law. I have no idea what dB I am at with these mufflers.

29 Outlaw, 496 Mag HO's. Was 97db at idle without mufflers, got ticket Now running GGB Extremes. Sounds good, no more problems....

Sucks having to run them tho, it sounded GREAT without them.....

Yes...I have in-line GGBs on my twin stock 496HOs and did not experience any loss of speed. The boat is much quieter, but still has a great sound.
