    Where's the coolant going!

    Another thing is happening on my modded boat, it throws the code P1116, and it's coolant bottle is always empty, there's no water in the oil, it runs hard but it empties the coolant bottle, what's up with that?

    NO.....because its only pressurizing the coolant system and blowing it back out your overflow tube on the coolant bottle
    ..........BET!!!!!!!!

    how about a crack in the ride plate? or the allen head drain fitting on the rear of the drive plate leaking?
    You can pressure up the coolant overflow tank without the ski running and see where it leaks,

    Possible too ... easy way to rule out the head gasket is to run the overflow tube into a 20 oz Coke plastic bottle or something similar. Fill the coolant bottle midway, go run the ski hard for a bit and check the Coke bottle ... if it has caught the coolant, it is almost 100% certain it is the failed head gasket.
