    VF3 Tips!

    So I just got my VF3s in from Fercho! Everything looks great. So what do you guys think..... Stuffers in or out?

    I know a few guys have taken the stuffers out. I haven't really heard any real reports of gains either way. There have also been a few boats that "ate" the stuffers. (bowed and warped causing blockage)

    I run them in my boats and all the boats I build. Be sure to match them up to the manifold and trim to clear the intake tract as needed.

    I use the stuffers. Just trim them to match the manifold. Also I use the 1300 TB gaskets instead of the ones Fercho sends.

    TB Gaskets? There isn't such thing on the GPR EFI I don't think. The only gasket I saw was the one between the balancer plate and the reed valve plate. I bought a new one of those because I ripped the one that came on the ski.

    I will promise you that you will want these gaskets. You will be cussin trying to get the 3 piece gaskets that Fernando sends with the reeds on there. The only reason that I used the gaskets in the box was because the engine was out and on the bench so it was fairly easy.

    Yea I thought they might be a little hard to install but I think I can do it. I have done more difficult things before. Other wise I would be out 20 more bucks and another weekend of riding

    They will work, just take your time. Also apply a thin coat of grease on both sides of the gaskets. I use spray lithium grease.
