I finally installed the FAE. The motor noise is much lower and overall works great.

Looks great, you will love it. My favorite mod on my boat, so many benefits IMO

Follow up after some time on the new FAE. It works great and is much quieter however, my Hull shot and up to plane is drastically slower. Am I outa luck or is anyone aware of a fix? I have the scorpion 5.7 motor.

The hot rod saying has always been more flow more go....so when you restrict the flow I think you might be stuck with the results of the motors current power output on the new slightly restricted flow. I thought I had read that the FAE was supposed to scavenge better because of the Venturi effect and that actually helped draw exhaust out of the cylinder, but real world results are real world results. You could probably relive some exhaust restriction by straight piping it if you have a muffler and I believe FAE makes a kit to do that as well. Or you could deal with it's ability to get on plane by re propping the boat...but you will probably lose some top end speed. That's my $.02

I have never heard of the FAE reducing power or holeshot...only losing a little on top end due to the extra drag. I am wondering if the prop you have is not for low end and the slight extra drag accentuated that. If you surf mostly, you would benefit from a torque prop anyway and it should also lower rpm's, tho it will reduce top speed...most of us do not care about that tho unless you ski or barefoot. I suggest re-prop tho and talking to Larry at FAE, he is always willing to help make his products better

Thanks, I will start researching props and get it swapped out. I was expecting a slight change in performance but this is a little too much. I'll let you know what I come up with.

Just wondering if you ended up going with a different prop?   I also have been dealing with fae to get exhaust for my 2016 s211,  but they are busy and haven’t got one just yet.

      Just read your message regarding restoring your Barefoot Falcon.  I have a 1991 Barefoot Falcon with exact same floor issues.  I also had to replaced the stringers and am in the process of replacing the floor.  My question is regarding the need to replace the foam.  Like you I have several hundred pounds of saturated foam removed and I am not certain to replace it or leave it without foam.  Do you are anyone know if the foam is necessary for any structural support, or is it just for sound and flotation?
