If thats the case, it's a another bonus for the cmi system.

Fred, any input on the warranty coverage?
I spoke to a Mercury represenative at the Miami show. I received the same reply. The CMI exhaust alone would not void the warranty.

Fortunately, none of the folks who have actually purchased a CMI system seem to share your views.

There's a huge difference between casting an aluminum manifold and riser and building a true stainless steel tubular header. If money is an issue you've made a fine compromise.

One fact says it all: Over the last six years, Custom Marine headers, tailpipes and exhaust systems have been on more National and World Championship boats than all other brands combined. The reason is simple: When it comes to quality, performance and striking good looks, no one can touch CMI. No one even comes close!

I am sure it is a great product, just did not make sense to me personally on my twin Raylar project based on a cost/benefit analysis. If money was no object, I may have chose the CMI's

Lots of exciting news. I never got around to pulling the turbolators off last season but will make the time this spring. I don't really care about the speed gains (well ok, I do) and will be quite excited if it only makes it louder.... The other beauty is not a single penny spent.

What similar CMI do you see for 2k?

The only "similar" header that I'm familiar with is the CMI Sport Tube.

Last time I checked the catalog it had a retail price of $4700 in a Bravo configuration.
