The Bravo Killer

after many headaches, and well over 1.5 years the cig is getting near the end of the restoration...ish. The triple 950s were installed today. We got to check the stainless marine pipes and they came out perfect, which after sending just measurements, and then having to have them change from the pipe going straight to the manifold to using a risor was very impressive. We will be sending the pipes back to be cut 8 inches shorter so we can attach mufflers inside the boat and run exhaust hose to the outside sides. I got some pics after installed. The center engine is coming out monday to be sent to dyno, and the boat will be taken to burkes shop to finish fuel system, freshwater flush system, etc. I'M READY TO BOAT GOD DARNIT! MWAHHAHAHAHAHAAH we will kill more drives than reggie could dream of cats!

We will be using cmi sound elimination tips for the two rear.For the center we will as well be using cmi sound elimination tips for the, but we will be clamping them on inside the boat then using 6inch exhaust hose to meet up with a flush mount tip on the side. The exhaust is all 5 inch.
