There are no days in life so memorable as those which vibrated to some stroke of the imagination.

Mr. Riggs was one of the first guys I spoke to about my project. He did
not want to mess with a Mercury EFI system on a good running engine.
He will fix a hurt motor to stock specs but not give me the 125-150hp
increase I want. Mel said if I ditch the EFI he will give me as many
ponies as I can afford!

Know of and talked to MPG also. Same deal. Does not want to modify
Mercury EFI's. I can't remember if we talked about aftermarket EFI
systems or not. My friends live in Highland Park so that is who told me
about MPG

being as no one has mentioned Precision Marine in Kenner LA, I will...Mark is one of the best when it comes to computers and tuning. he maintains AJ's skater and it runs like a top and he is a great guy to boot. He helped me in making my 500efi's 625 hp,
