    Geez I'm so torn on about getting this in the offseason this year. It's almost like a crap shoot from my understanding of these trials and reports. You may or not get anything out of them. What to do lol

    For anyone buying those specifically to get a bit more top speed I would say - be prepared to do some serious tuning work - or save your money. In other words, yes, it will work but requires at least some tuning - beyond adding/removing the spacers. That involves adjustments to impeller pitch and sizing the venturi nozzle opening.

    On the other hand, if getting the maximum low end pull and hole shot with no cavitation is the primary goal, those L13s are great for that! Especially in combination with the factory (OEM) impellers. One can make small adjustments to RPM (by adding/removing spacers) and bring the twins closer together at the same time - while getting rid of cavitation, too. So, it is a win-win there.

    That last part is very easy, too. Adding/removing spacers (one can choose to use anywhere between 0 and 5 spacers, in different sizes) can be done without removing the pumps or nozzles. It takes a little bit of wiggle-ing up and down working through the back nozzle opening, but is quite easy to do even with my own (not so small) hands.

    Which makes basic L13 adjustments a blast - and no time, with the boat on the trailer.

    Hope this helps.

    Party pooper. Any experiment with cold air intake yet? Would that make much of a difference for low end torque?

    I'm not going to do this, as I do not find any evidence that the engines are starved of air at WOT. For example, there is no suction detectable on the fire extinguisher hole (in the engine hatch), and no RPM gain if one cracks the engine hatch open.

    And besides, the intakes would need to open somewhere in the stern and would need to be routed across the engine bay, along (hot) engine heads - so the air would already be warmed up anyway - by the time it enters throttle body. I think someone has done it in a 192 and that was their experience.

    Gotcha. Makes sense why no one is talking about it on here either. I should have known you all probably thought about all that lol. When it comes to auto and their performances, I'm def a noob.
