When they get back from KW (after the 14th), I would call Leon at BTM marine aka Team Taboo. Their number is in the links section. I'm taking my boat down next week for some help too.

ran those traps... everyone told me... leave them stock --- and I did. Your resale will go into the toilet --- both short term and long term it'll be cheaper to sell the boat and buy one w/ the power you're looking for vs. trying to modify and/or sell a modified (non-stock) boat.

....best advise I received in regard to my old 525 Ciggie!
