Care to share the CMI tips?

Dean, congrats on the Slingshot, I love mine with 800's and #5's. I've been on StripsPoker388 Slingshot, though I was afraid to touch anything, I didn't want to leave any fingerprints, haha. Good Luck!!!

Mainly Joe said to drain the headers at the end of everyday, sometimes if we run it and going to be sitting for a couple of hours, drain them then also. Don't know pratical that is going to be, but we'll see...
And yes if we get a chance to come up there, I hopefully can drag it up to A-bay.
Thanks,
Dean

DD,
Thanks, yeah I hear Rob's boat is spotless, he and I talked about meeting in Destin this summer on a off weekend, to do some boating, and hang out @ Crab Island, (we love that place) I llved in Navarre Beach back in the early 90's working on Hurlburt.

Well,
Everything went really well, the guys at Roque Motion were great, and the local Hi-Perf. Mech, Quality Marine Serive, (David Hall) did an excenllent job also. Got in last night about 1 am, whew what a road trip. Also thanks to my good buddy Bajabennett, for taking the road trip with me! I'll post more info later, but the MAIN Q I have now is: Does the 600sci have a dedicated overboard H2O dump for the intercooler?
Thanks,
Dean

Thanks,

Most boats rigged with one for each motor, you can follow the hoses from the front of the cooler back to see where they dump.
Driver's side dumps are nice, easy to visually check that you have water flow.
600sci's are great motors, lots of easy hp upgrades.

Kelly,
Thanks for the info. That's exactly how I found mine, plus the 2 dump thru hulls on the transom helped give it away
Yeah so far I'm really excited about this boat and these motors.

BTW, I grew up on Port Bay on Lake Ontario, and I went to school in Geneseo, not too far from Auburn.
