Yes, they are coated.
Also, notice that the bolts are bigger. I thought it was just the intake bolts that were being enlarged. So who's drilled into their pump shoe to get these oversized bolts to fit into the pump shoe? I am a little leary of drilling into my pump shoe. Just want to know if anyones tried it. Thinking of trying it on this F'ed up pump shoe I gots here at the house.

Yes you need to drill and tap the shoe. Just take your time and drill straight and not to deep. M8 X 1.25 thread.

Hmmmm, still hate drilling into the pump shoe period. But if some of you have done it, I'll give it a whirl on my F'edup one.
So what about the polishing etc.?

I think the M8 calls for a 17/64th drill bit. Dont take that to the bank but Im 95 percent sure on that....

One thing I did notice about todays ride is that with the SS grate the boat seems to coast longer after you let off the throttle. I dont remember the other grate doing that....
Be careful guys if you test in close quarters until you get the feel for the thing....
