Hey Jeff, aren't you supposed to run the boat before you repower it?!?!?! Man, talk about a guy with ants in his pants!

Dockrocker, its hard coming out of a 98mph boat in the AT, and running 83 in that Nortech, its so smooth that I could take a nap. At 83 it feels like Im only going 60, its so damn smooth. Besides my wife just had surgery and we won't be able to boat for 1-1/2 months, so the timing was perfect.

Bling Bling, you said you got 29 more hp over which other exhaust system, thanks for the help guys, Jeff

With our monster 1350HP Sterlings we use Stainless Marine Cast Aluminum Manifolds and we love them. The main idea is to get the exhaust out as quick as you can and these work great.

Here are stellings on two big block Fords in a 32 Fountain with a 34 inch center line. Fords are taller and wider than Chevs. Randy was great to work with, I will difinitely work with him on my new Gladiator.

It looks like its between CMI and Stelling. Out of the 2, has anyone owned them longer than 2 or 3 years, and how do they look, any discoloration, any splitting or cracking, thanks jeff

Just visited a shop to have mufflers installed. They found all of my CMI headers with holes in them.... shooting salt water into the engine!!! It took 6 weeks to get a replacement set and they are leaking at the collars. The back of the shop was filled with CMI headers with holes. I have not tried Stellings, but I will.
