  1. No. I just swapped a complete V-drive unit. It' pretty straight forward in my case with the Walter V-drive. I would have had it done in a day if I didn't need to replace a slightly leaking transmission seal that I found when I pulled the V-drive. I also updated to a dripless shaft seal and new strut bushings at the same time, since you have to drop the shaft anyways. But after sliding my gas tank back to give a few inches, it was pretty much just a quick Remove and replace deal.
  2. This is what I waste my "go fast" money on:
  3. I considered doing that stuff, but after changing out the v-drive gear set to a 1.48:1, I don't need anything else.
  4. You could do it. I wouldn't want to. You would probably just make it louder and piss everyone off. A loud speedboat is ok, if it just drives by and goes to the other end of the lake. A wakeboat going back and forth for an hour or two would be annoying. Youd probably buy a 3rd set of Rev 10's and crank the music up louder to gear over the exhaust. Go ahead and do it, but not on my lake please.
  5. I've had FAE exhaust for years and always wanted to get around to a muffler delete. 1, because the muffler kind of becomes redundant with FAE, and some people noticed a bit of a power bump, and/or an actual sound decrease from the engine bay. Both of those sound good to me. Finally found time to get it done. This was just a quick fix, and most certainly not the cheapest, or most extravagant way to get it done. But the ease and time of putting it together was the main driver of my product selection. I didn't like the FAE muffler delete with the mitered 45* angles... The high performa
  6. Wow, turned out great! That bracket is really nice!
  7. I know I told you already how much I like this project. I really appreciate the effort of pro level mods like this. Some people are OK with PVC Surfpipes and harbor freight/home Depot suck gates, that give DIY a negative connotation, I'm glad you hold yourself to a higher standard.
  8. Awesome project, Battery install looks great. Also interested in the closed cooling system upgrade you did.
  9. It's mounted off the through bolts for the rear grab handle.
  10. Great write up, Thanks for posting. My non SC unit showed up yesterday. I think I'll do the strut seals while I'm at it.. Hopefully next week, along with my v-drive install.
  11. Thought I'd add a bunch of pics from my WaveContol install. This system is awesome, and the wave is rockin'. I have all the skills to make my own system, but really not the time for R&D. This seemed like a great option for me. Yes, it's expensive... but way cheaper than a new boat. It could possibly be better wave than surfgate or slappers... I guess that's debatable. It took a weekend to install. It comes with instruction and templates, but I'd advise not using the templates... install tabs 4" in from the side, extend the actuator all the way. Attach it to the tab. Angle tab down to 11* a
  12. The swim platform on my 247 was loose. The original aluminum brackets had worn out, allowing the platform to move about 3-4" up and down as the waves would hit the boat. It was pretty annoying. You can see the gap here. The aluminum was originally anodized to help protect it, but mine was worn out. I contemplated making my own brackets, or simply running a bolt through the step side bracket, but ultimately I decided to upgrade to the newer stainless brackets from the newer model boats, thinking it would be a simple bolt on repair. It would be expensive, but I thought it
  13. Nice!!! I can certainly appreciate a good LS Build. You got some great parts and picked great people to work with like Tick and AI. Great write up and nice pics. Nice and clean and well thought out. Here's my current project, 347 LS6 with F1R Procharger in a C5:
