Default This is why it costs so much to go fast!!!

Here are some pics of the hoses and fittings going in the 399 Skater I'm rigging. These are only the fittings and hoses going in the engine compartment. This does not include any of the plumbing on the engine, nor does it include any of the water plumbing for the engine. It also does not include any of the oil plumbing for the dry sump system. This is only for the intercooler, the fuel line from the filter to the engine and for the pressure relief valves for the sea strainers that go to overboard dumps.
What you see represents several thousand dollars. Then I have to put it all in the boat Just the -16 hose is over $12/ foot. I got 50 feet to start and may need more. No one said going fast is cheap!!!

Here are some pics for size reference. In the first pics are the -16 hose and fittings for the intercooler.
The next pic is the water inlet fitting for the sea pump.

That is just amazing to see all those pieces. Many of us have no idea what it takes other then money.

The little parts add up quick, nothing better than doing it first class though. I met the owner at Lake Cumberland when he was trying the boat out with the Merc. 1075's. It seemed to run pretty well with the "little" motors. The colors really pop on the water.

I put oil therms on my coolers a year ago and just that little project cost me a fortune in hose and fittings, especially the fittings.

And If You Use Those Fittings Around Salt Water You Have To Replace Them In A Couple Of Years ,,And If You Use All Stainless It More Than Triples The Original Cost Factor
