steering nozzle bolt w/ FF plate
I may be worrying about things that have no effect, but I notice that with pump extension/05 pump and and stock gpr steering nozzle the bolt on bottom looks to be hanging in the flow from under the FF plate.
Just got a pm from mrbtd and he tells me to get the stock nozzle chit off there. Does the recessed allen bolt of aftermarket nozzle make a difference? and would the xlt steering nozzle be the way to go for top speed?

Take a straight edge and lay it on the flat side of the plate and extend the edge to the bolt. The straight edge represents the water flow as the boat is moving. If the straight edge does not touch the bolt, then while the boat is running in smooth water, the bolt is not in the line of flow and should not cause a problem while at speed.

I think I'll try what Jim says with button head allen head till I get different nozzle.
I think the bolt will be in the flow if I get to the angle I think I need.
I may be wrong but with heavier rider (240lbs) would I not need more angle on plate for most speed gain. The fastest speeds I have seen prior to 2"extension were with no shims at rear of plate and front shimmed with one thick washer (can't remember thickness or any measurements off hand)
