ID:	284630Hi,

    I need to replace the throttle cable on my XPL. It is a twin piper (long chamber) with Novi 48's, Skatty pump and Franco MPEM. It is used for mostly surf and rec but will be competing in C/C racing shortly. Do I need to run the cable with the Throttle Position Sensor?

    I've heard the same as well. Nice boat, how about an engine bay pic?

    Engine Bay - Extra glass around edge of inner hull, 6mm aluminium plates and extra glass under engine and exhaust mounts. Motor is in while I make up new exhaust (full twin).

    I used a pair of fire extinquishers (empty of course) and modified them as waterboxes. They are light, super strong and aluminium.
    photos below are of the custom made exhaust. I taught myself to Tig weld over the weekend, so the welds are strong. just not real pretty. Polisher should clean them up a bit.

    ell, still waiting for my pistons to arrive. According to USPS, they are stuck in JFK airport, thanks to hurricane Rita. however, Andrew from Eastern Washington Sled Parts is sending over another set so I can go racing. It's rare i give a shop a plug, but Andrew has done everything bar digging through the rubble of the USPS warehouse in an effort to find my pistons.

    Great place, great bloke and awesome service.

    Rick,

    I purchased them via good old Ebay. He has 1 size over (.5mm) advertised and may have more. Andrew is a good bloke and will help you wherever possible.
