Been looking at and thinking about the jetworks mod..??
From looking at the Fercho or The Costa or the Who ever else does em..!!
My Question is...Am i missing something..????? (other than some grey matter)..!!
Has this/these installs been over engineered..??
For example why not just take the water from one side of the exhaust to the other..??
So you've got your blanking gasket in place...
Then you fit your exhaust drain (90 degree npt)
After that you move your temp sensor
WHY not just feed the exhaust drain over and into where the temp sensor was..??
Slam your J/W valve in between..
Hell add a little t into the mix and put the temp sensor in there..??
This way when you take your stinger pipe out there's nothing to disconnect..!!
Will this work..????
If Yes, it sure beats drilling the transom. getting dual cooling blocks etc etc..?
If No, then what about using a y-splice., just like the one where the flush hose tee's into..!!
So adding another y-splice or tee in the main water line..??
Then use that to feed the J/W valve/waterbox..
Ok let the bashing commence...

No bashing, its always good to try to think of ways to build a better mouse trap.
However the first Idea wouldnt work because there isnt enough pressure to open the JW valve at the bottom of the stinger.
The second Idea was avoided because you dont want to take any "cooling" water away from the engine. The way its done now doesnt draw water away from the engine.

I have mine setup the fercho way but with the "stealth" carl islandracing spin. So I have one hole coming in and none coming out.
You could I guess delete the siphon, take that hole and make it your in for the water. Then take the exhaust out and do the "stealth" like I did and have no holes.
Just a thought....

Ah My old pal pressure...
As if i don't have enough pressure eh...???
Okay That was my first thought on re-inventing this wheel..
SO........... why not use a lower pressure valve dealy-thingy..???
Surely they must exist..!!!!!!!
OR... (remember just thinking out loud here boys)
Why not use an electrical valve or solenoid valve..??
This could easy be triggered off say the power valve opening signal..??
While i'm thinking out loud..
What about an exhaust/water bottle valve that could/would give back what a freeflow robs
Again triggered from the power valve signal or a pickup say on the intermediate shaft..??
Okay.. rebuttals accepted now gentlemen...

Meant to add...
Why not do something like the solenoid valve idea with the pump pressure problem..

Well I guess you could try all those things, but for all the time, trouble, and expense of testing, you could just do it the way thats already known to work without problems. I like the fact that your putting thought into these things. It will pay off for you, but maybe not on the jetworks mod. Its alot easier install than you might be thinking it is.
