    Bought a used 4-tec

    Recently bought a 2002 gtx 4-tec. I could not water test before I bought for reasons I will not bore you with. 76 hours on it. I just put it in the water and I'm getting 40 mph @ 7,300. Very slow to plane and very sluggish, especiialy in turns. I am a fair mechanic with, manual, tools and time. Frankly I do not know where to start trouble shooting. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Also, what is the generall consensus of this machine. Reliable and durable (I hope).
    As a new guy, this is a great site.

    sounds like a cavatation problem,chech the impeller and wear ring for damage or the thru hull shaft seal

    Based only on my reading, impeller and/or wear ring will be an easy fix.
    If that is all this is, I will be happy
