  1. RI245 out the door price

    I want to crawl through one then do a demo wakesurf before I decide. Supposedly the first one will arrive in British Columbia, Canada in a week or two. I looked up some torque graphs and the 6.0 has around 370 ft-lbs at 3000rpm and the 6.2 is over 400@3000rpm. I’d upgrade if I purchase one.
  2. RI245 out the door price

    On the PCM website it says it’s basically the next generation of their marine engine. Up from 6.0L to 6.2L and from 450 ft-lbs of torque to 465. It’s also a direct injected engine which improves efficiency.

    Maybe the H6 6.2L plus a 16x15 prop will be more efficient then a 6L 450 with a 16x13. Im thinking with the additional low end torque you wouldn’t need to rev the engine as high.
  4. RI245 out the door price

    Since we are discussing the 245 I have a question about the engine of choice. We’re at sea level and only wakesurf so is the 450 enough or is it worth it to get the H6 engine? Also, how efficient is the 6.2L H6 compared to the 6.0L 450?
  5. Are the Wetsound Icon8 speakers relevant anymore? With have four on our Enzo tower and the sound for the people in the boat is outstanding. Would these new 10” HCLD speakers blow their eardrums out?
  6. On the 2014 put the cats at 0 for goofy and at 100 for regular side surfing.
  7. 09 enzo sv230

    A great goofy wake on the SV230 is very difficult. You need the wakeplate down all the way to clean the wake up but that forces the rear of the boat defeating the purpose of ballast so it needs even more. If you’re mainly riding the goofy side you need to find a reverse rotation transmission and propeller.
  8. Centurion sells a replacement kit for the Valterra valves. Has anyone used this kit? Were all the parts like the longer hoses and clamps included?
  9. 09 enzo sv230

    We never used a suck gate on our SV230 but if I did I think I’d fill both rear lockers, up the side seats and under the bow seat, to the max with fat sacs. You probably only need a little wakeplate down to clean up the wake. 11.2 mph is a good place to start. We listed our boat. Get about 1100#’s in the rear locker, 600#’s under the port side seat and a 400# sac pushed as far forward under the seat on the driver side. 11.2 mph for a softer wake, 11.5 for some serious vert! If you have a large crew you don’t require this much weight. We were always just a small crew.
  10. Note to above we run at 11.2mph. Speaking of efficiency, listed over with less ballast it uses 26 litres of fuel per engine hour. The full load suck gate surf uses 35 litres per engine hour.
  11. Im using the 1617 prop on our 2014 SV244. It has the pcm409 engine. It is not a ram fill boat though. Listed with 2700#’s of ballast, the CATS fully cranked plus a couple lightweight passengers it runs around 3300rpms. We are at sea level. Using our suck gate and all 4100#’s of ballast plus 400#’s of lead it settles in around 3600rpm. the boat came with the 1847 prop and it was fine unless we had a large crew and used the suck gate so we upgraded the prop using the prop selector on the Acme website.
  12. Yes, it was sporty. I went to a 5 blade prop. cheers
  13. You will need to upgrade the ballast system for a good wake. Enzo sacs plus a little lead is the norm. Depending on what propeller is on the boat and your elevation you may require to upgrade that as well.
  14. Nice looking boat. The main lounge of the SV233 is about the same size as an older SV240 so a good choice. Does it have the Pro ballast bags under the side seats? What about a bow sac? Going to need extra lead if you want to list it for a great goofy wake. also, does it have the CATS articulating fin? A must have for listing to wakesurf.
  15. The A plate is used when you list the boat, especially for the goofy side you need the plate down to clean up the wake. With a suck gate on the side the A plate is not required. I haven’t surfed an Enzo with a retrofitted Surf system so I can’t comment on how much better the wake is but you can get a pretty amazing wake with the suck gate and it’s a few thousand dollars less.
