Default Got my new pipes!

Just got my new mufflers put on. The decrease the sound incredibly. There are some side effects. The motors stall and surge like crazy. I guess the carbs need to be adjusted to accommodate them with all the back pressure. My neighbors are going to be very happy. I hate the way they look. I think they look goofy as heck. If you happen to order some, be very careful on your measurements. I got these and they were 6" too long. When we turned the wheel, the drives would hit them very quickly. It cost me an additional $600 to have them cut down and welded . Pissed me off a little bit. If I would have sent them back, shipping would have been a couple of hundred $$ and I would have lost at least 3 more weeks so I had them cut locally.

You saw that?? I remind those guys constantly. They are pretty good about it. If I could only get them to wash thier hands before touching the suede on the seats i'd be in good shape.

Gino....they don't look bad at all. It's HARD to take away anything from your boat..........99% of the people will never even notice them.

Gino, your boat looks so great, I don't think that anyone will notice that the pipes are turned down. I've seen another type of turndown, and the pipes have a turn in them to go straight down to the water. I think I seen that at Sarasota poker run this March on O U want some's boat. Sounds goofy as heck tho. Sounds like a Sea Ray with a big cam and a stuck choke on the carb.
I think Brad Zastro has turn downs on his cat too. When we're in the harbor, and he passes by out in the lake, you'd never tell that he has mufflers.
