  1. black scorpion 330? are you getting good constant 14.2-14.3 voltage with the motor running? have you checked the fuel pressure? there are two fuel pumps from what i hear, one in the tank and one at the rear port side of the motor (black scorpion anyway) near the raw water pump. i'm assuming you've done the easy stuff first like fuel filter, plugs and wires since you also did the cap and rotor? if not i'd do all that as well as the IAC valve and maybe the CPS.
  2. hey adam, here's a couple of relevant threads...
  3. same here other than, between steps 5 and 6 i get it up to operating temp then pull the spark arrestor off and spray fogging oil into the throttle body until the engine stalls to effectively fog the cylinders.
  4. if you have the Black Scorpion in your Elite V, i followed this procedure last year here in the cold northeast (boat is kept in a non-heated, detatched garage): i skipped the v-drive fluid and trans fluid change in the fall and did the other stuff. add Stabil or Startron to your gas tank before starting this procedure, and fill the tank up. i just pulled the 7 blue drain plugs and didn't put antifreeze in, but have a coathanger on hand to run inside the plug holes that you pull out to drain, to make sure there's nothing keeping them from draining completely.
  5. Sub Help: Who’s Cut Their Hump?

    thanks @Wylie_Tunes. i want to free up some storage space because i have 2x12's in a ported box taking up most of the space under the passenger seating area; will my bass go to crap by going to a single free-air 12 or 15" (if it fit) in that location? i'm definitely not looking to win contests, just have respectable sound.
  6. Sub Help: Who’s Cut Their Hump?

    for anyone who's done this cut, is the area under the footwell an area that gets water/moisture from the bilge area during normal boat use? i'm thinking of doing a free-air sub there but don't want it to get destroyed if that area gets damp at all.

    Troy do you have an a-plate or double winged plate in that pic?

    i have the sideswipe covers that came with my typhoon that are yours if you want to pay shipping. do you have an adjustable trim tab? if so, have the trim tab all the way up and no bow weight. lean it for the best wave if you're sticking with that weight for the season--full center ballast and full ballast only on the side you're surfing, with people also sitting on that side. upgrade bags in the off-season
  9. Upgrading elite c4

    yes, i've been told they can generally go down 1.5-2 without a problem. 100% call Nettle Props in TX, they are the best in the business. talk to the owner JT if you can, he'll give the right recommendation on the pitch to go to for your setup. do you have a 1.46:1 vdrive or 1:1?
  10. Upgrading elite c4

    you probably have a prop ding if you get a shudder when hammering down--it may not even be an obvious ding. as far as the pulling, the deep-v's are weight-sensitive and that could be why if it's not evenly weighted?
  11. when you pulled the housing apart to install the new impeller, were there round scoring marks on the water intake side where the old impeller was rotating? I would bet $100 that's the issue. i had that problem a month ago when i replaced my impeller--old one was still working, i did it as maintenance. turns out they went to a newer design on the pumps where you get a stainless plate that fits over that intake half that gets scored up over time. the scoring causes the pump not to prime, hence the lack of cooling at idle. when you bump up the rpms it pulls enough water through to cool. i'll attach a pic of my old pump for reference. i priced out whole pumps, half pumps, etc etc and this guy was way cheaper than anyone else. he shipped a newer-style intake half of the pump with the stainless plate and took my old one in return for a discount. give him a call and he'll take care of ya.

  12. Upgrading elite c4

    you won't even think about it after a couple times out. 3M 5200 baby!
  13. Upgrading elite c4

    yes you'd be fine with two on one inlet, but if you're not trying to save money i'd do individual inlets for each pump to maximize flow.

    if you're able to source a new PP screen for the stock Wakeboard Pro system, let me know because everyone tells me that i have to upgrade to stargazer to get a new screen.
