    in 03 there was a recall because the intake ducts were pulling through the hull
    was a real pia to do
    had to pull batt box and un glue the inserts where the duct bolts in
    then glue this bracket in
    to hard to get to for a pic

    If by bracket you mean the newer style pump shoe inserts. This is not good enough, you still need the tunnel reinforcement in conjunction with the newer inserts.

    Yep, the 03's are especially weak back there. If you're going to be doing any modding at all, you need this first. Nice score by the way!

    If the trim tabs have the extensions, cut them to stock length.

    A timing key will make a lot of difference in acceleration. Mill the head to 150psi, maybe some reeds or stuffers. Also upgrade to the HO pump.
