    Jetworks to drill or not to drill... that is the question..

    So the no drill method has been out awhile like txgp1300r uses... Looks very simple to install...

    Any drawbacks to this method? or performance advantage to another one?


    I plan on removing temp sensor and leaving off, tapping the hole with 1/8 npt 3/8 barb, making gasket to block off waterflow at stinger, install jetworks valve like in photo and voila.... Good method ?

    Hmm, I would think that would make things run hotter. I could be wrong though.

    I have mine done the Fercho way and I have no problems at all. Hole shot is way better. The was I look at is the pipe is already out so why not another hole or so. It is a proven method with no issues.... and well I like no issues.

    Also if you remove the siphon tube you don't have to drill a hole in the back for water from the pump. Then if you use a Y fitting you can make the water go out another water out on the ski. So no holes in the hull.

    Without a drain at the bottom of the stinger pipe it will get very hot and eventually fill up with sand. It only takes a few minutes to pull that pipe off.

    Thanks Gerry. If anyone has any doubts of how to do this, I am parting out the engine in my personal ski. The stinger is already drilled and plumbed for Jetworks.
