  1. I run 2 1100s in my boat and don't have any issues. I did change my prop to an ACME 1619 to help get out of the hole easier and up to surf speed faster. The 537 (all around prop) was struggling if I didn't have anyone in the bow. You'll probably want to reinforce the engine dividers. My starboard divider will pop out all the time until I added the brace kit from wakemakers.
  2. Removing Side Swipe

    Nope....I heard the early kits had spray issues but they made a couple changes to the end of the pipe to correct that issue.
  3. Removing Side Swipe

    I removed the sideswipe from my 06 Enzo and replaced it with an FAE. Huge reduction in the noise and was well worth it in my opinion but I'm not planning to get rid of the boat any time soon.
  4. Old interior needs replaced

    I've got several seats at Full Throttle in Woodstock, GA. They should be finished soon...hopefully next week. I'll let you know how they turned out. I think they said it was going to be $225 per seat.
  5. Does anyone else's stereo volume get super low when you turn on your ballast pumps? I know this is a lot of current draw but there has to be a way to set this up so the stereo volume isn't impacted. Any thoughts or ideas???
  6. Thanks Wylie_Tunes, the batteries are not that old. I replaced the alternator and dual battery isolator last year.
  7. Enzo 230 prop

    I run a 1619 in my 06 Enzo and it's an awesome prop. We typically run about 3k of ballast plus crew/gear and the boat does great. Before I reproped the boat it had a 537 and would run mid 40s, now with the 1619 I can still run just a hair under 39 on gps.
  8. Ran into a similar issue with mine but I replaced the Sideswipe with a FAE. One cup was higher because of the block off plate and I couldn't get the other cup to attach. Solved this by cutting off the handle so I had to individual cups and then reattached them together but with longer material in between each so I could get enough leverage to move and position the front cup to attach to the hull.
  9. I've got the same boat and just recently switched from a listed wave (1100lb port rear locker, 580lbs under port bench plus crew) and just couldn't get enough push in the wave. Now I'm running an 1100lb bag in each rear locker and a homemade suckgate and it made a huge difference. There's so much push now it's hard to slow down enough without getting right up on the swim platform. I just re-proped the boat because the Acme 537 that was on it was struggling to get to surf speeds without any bow weight but adding bow weight flatted out the wave and killed the push. Now that the Acme 1619 is on the boat (awesome prop btw) I'm going to play around with adding the 580 back into the mix but will likely start off with it in the center of the boat.
  10. The boat is an 06 SV230 with 1100lb bag in the port rear locker and 580lb bag under the seat on the port side both were completely full and there was an addition 215lb human ballast on the port side. The sweetspot seems to be right behind the boat and not very forgiving. Comparing my wave to an FX-22 I surfed last year the FX-22 wave had more push further back but I don't know how it was weighted. WakeMakers suggested putting in another 1100lb bag on the starboard side, using a wake shaping device and possibly putting the 580lb bag in the bow. I'm not really sure what the best option is but I know this boat can make killer wave once I get it right. Any suggestions?

  11. I've got video of my buddy riding behind my boat & the FX-22 last summer; I'll post those later and would be interested in getting pointers based on what you see.
  12. Once I get the boat back from the detail shop, I plan to test the PP against a phone app for speed accuracy. I have a fixed trim-plate so nothing I can do there but good to know the results with a similar weight set-up.,
  13. I feel like we've got the basics down as we were surfing behind an FX-22 last summer before I bought my boat last October. I haven't been able to surf behind my boat as I had surgery April 3rd to re-attach my bicep tendon, so I've been going off of what it looks like when my buddy is behind the boat and what he feels while surfing compared to last summer. So there is definitely the possibility he needs to work on the fundamentals again since it's been a while. The board is a P5 58" Model X, so unfortunately I know it will hold both mine and my buddy's weight as we're both over 220lbs. I supposed we could try to loose weight but who wants to give up beer??? Rhale- let me know your thoughts once you change over to the suck gate.....
  14. Great info; thanks for the feedback! There's a big difference in the wave between those photos.
  15. 11.2 on the perfect pass but I'm not sure how accurate that is
  16. Just purchased a 2006 SV230 Enzo and had it delivered to Georgia from Arizona. After replacing all the fluids, I got to take it out this past weekend and it runs awesome. Looking forward to next summer. Over the winter months I've got the following upgrades planned: FAE to replace the sideswipe exhaust Wakemakers 1100lb Tankbuster bag upgrade (rest of the ballast *600ish lbs* will be in 50lb shot bags) Stereo Couple of questions: Inside the hull of the boat in front of the gas tank there are the two ballast fill/drain lines and a t-handle that looks like a dipstick....anyone know what the t-handle is for? Also are there seals that need to be checked and replaced on the ballast drain/fill lines? I think I'm getting water leakage in that area. I'm not worried about the goofy-side wake and am thinking about extending and running the starboard ballast pump lines to the bag in the port locker. My thinking is having both pumps filling and draining the bag will significantly reduce wait times but is this over kill? I'm on Lake Allatoona if any one is local.
  17. If this is the black & green boat in Kentucky, I looked at that boat too.
  18. NADA Values

    Before I bought my boat (06 Enzo 530 hrs) I was seeing similar 06 Enzos with an asking price between $39-42K; if you got your boat any where between low and average retail retail you got a good deal. I wouldn't be worried about the hours; it averages out to 50ish a year which is nothing. Over 500 hours used to be a lot before wake surfing became so popular but I know a guy with an Fx-22 & another guy with an 2013 SV233 and they have 750ish & 900-ish hours respectively. With anything it's all about the maintenance; if you keep up with the maintenance you should be able to get 1500-2000 hours easy out of that motor before a rebuild.
  19. I forgot to mention in my previous post that the Sideswipe doesn't work which is the main reason I decided to go with the FAE and it takes up a lot of room in the rear locker that doesn't allow the 1100lb sac to fully fill. I decided to scrap running both of the pumps to the 1100lb in the port rear locker & instead am adding a 580lb bag under the port bench seat that I'll hook up the starboard pump to. DjOM21- good catch on the bimini; that's how the dealership mounted it.
  20. Thanks stoked-- glad I didn't pull it while we were on the lake checking the v-drive fluid. Thanks enzo on LI; I'll definitely look into this. Is this the seal people replace with a "dripless"?
