    i know a few members here have used the stock exhaust to fab up a thru hull. You could always just eliminate the resonator and strait pipe it. Hopefully some of those guys will chime in.

    I'm pretty sure he is referring to putting a straight piece of pipe between the 2 OE exhaust hoses in place of the OE plastic exhaust resonator. This is done with a simple 8" section of pipe and possibly a silicone or rubber coupler depending on what year your ski is.

    IMO if your keeping the stock water box, not really. Your are still deleting the resonator. The only real noticable thing I seen was, if you use the stock outlet, it's a little anoying at certain rpm's. Just try to keep the bends to a minimum.

    Not much to the whole kit what year ski? 07 or older riva waterbox and through hull. If you decide to make one yourself welds are critical. If your looking for cheap split the waterbox gut it. If you want effective put a riva box and walk away
