Mine are N/A but our prosystems carbs and Daytona sensors ignition work so amazing I have zero desire to go efi.

Do a little research on the Daytona sensor ignition and you will be impressed.

Another one for Nickerson. Had a set of carbs that he built in the late 90s, put a blower 540 together in 2007. Called him and gave him serial numbers of the carbs, he told me what air bleeds and jets to use he was dead on.

Had the opposite experience with Nickerson, $1500 after his "magic" they ran like garbage.Fuel curve was junk, lot of the passages were hogged out too much etc .

Back in the day maybe you needed some guy to modify carbs because choices were limited but today with all the great choices you absolutely do not.
The idea that some guy sitting somewhere in his shop doing mail order tunes knows what your boat needs is dumb to me.

Get yourself a good set of QFT carbs and off you go . My QFT carbs I couldn`t get them to surge.
