I agree, header leaks will happen, fresh water or salt water. Leak testing the headers is still important to do from time to time. So if you happen to spring a leak between checks and are draining...

I couldn't agree more on going Coil Near Plug with IGN1A coils... there's a reason Mercury uses them on all their big engines. Since you're running Holley EFI - and their hall effect setup, it's...
