Some thoughts...

I'm goinig to need special tailpipes also...while the headers are standard, and we may be able to get a good deal on some, the tailpipes will be an issue because they will all be different and we'll all need to do our own measurements...do you guys have any thoughts on how to handle this? What if someone measures wrong and needs to send them back?

I can email you guys a template showing where to take the measurements from and if you are within 1/4" either way and without silent choice, the rubber exhaust hose will flex that far. I am also willing to see what I can do on a group purchase.

The ones that sell for $1995 are the ONE piece elbow top headers set up for a Bravo. Dont need tailpipes. Polished uppers only...satin lowers. w/cool collar
I'm interested in the Tube split tops (32" runner)
I can get a set for $2600 (non polished lowers polished uppers and tailpipes, non cool collar)
If someone makes a group deal and I can get these for less or the sameprice all polished, I may join in.
Thanks
Dan

For tailpipes if you have the holes in the transom already, the best way is to install the headers and build tail pipes out of 4" pvc. Glue them good and send them to CMI. They can match them.
I do have a friend that is looking at selling a pair of CMI Tube tops.. if any one is interested, I could hook you up with him.. Email me..

I will check tommorrow (it might be Monday, the Ft Laud boat show is here, it depends on who I can reach) and see what kind of pricing I can set up.

As far as tailpipes, I have a laser fixture that you clamp on the header, then measure from the spot it projects on the transom.

Dick's approach works better if you have stuff in the way.

Can you use them with silent choice? If so I'm interested.
