Sorry for the hi-jack but any concerns when switching from std. deck to tall deck???? Days away from swapping in a tall deck motor. I just run the rubber couplers with 4" pipe as tips. I assumed the difference would be minimal. Also, I assumed the motor centerline wouldnt change. Am I wrong on this???

Arti I have some regular motors that you are more then welcome to use. Can you just compensate for for the difference in the tall deck?

I could check with my buddy Chip (drag racing guy) and see if he has a tall deck? Give me a call.

Artie - Just hope and pray yours show up with all your parts and everything actually works. Mine were delivered 5 weeks ago, and they are just now finally ready to go in the boat, but there is still parts missing. Hopefully they get there this year, and don't disappear like my MSD brackets did.

Biggest thing is that the exhaust moves up and out about 3/16 give or take, if you have enough length of rubber it's no big deal, however it will require a lot of welding if you are stainless all the way.
