    svho pump shoe and intake grate pump stuffer DIY.

    So I figured I would try to make my own pump stuffer kit instead of spending 80 bucks plus shipping for the r&d one. I called up west systems and told them what I wanted to do and they recommend the 610 epoxy system in the tube. So I went to west marine and bought 2 tubes of the 610, threw it in my caulking gun and went to town. I used EXACTLY 2 tubes!! With little to none to spare. Thank god for rubber disposable gloves because this stuff can get messy. I filled all the voids to the top, waited about 15 minutes and leveled them off. I think it came out pretty nice and I saved 50 bucks in the end.

    I don't know, this is actually going on my older fzr, I figured why not go a full 160 mm all the way through. I am going to do back to back tests with the older style transom plate with r&d intake grate and the new 2014 style with r&d intake grate. I will tell you there us Alot of bad casting marks that will reduce speed and possibly cavitate so I recommend smoothing them out and polishing it. It will most likely free up a mph or maybe 2 if you have a highly modified ski.
