One question, I noticed some have taken and shined up these grates, aren't they coated with some type of antiresistant stuff? I know some of these grates will need to be "cleaned" up, but what about the coating? Why does one wing sit more forward than the other wing?

    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.

    Not a big deal, just drill and tap to M8 size and you will be fine. Also reccomend going with WFO's upgrade on the front mount. Been doing this with the aluminum grates for years now.

    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.?

    drill size

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

    That's what was used on my ski. It's the closest standard size to the mm spec that Jerry listed in the original thread.

    I have received some questions on the pitch of the bolts. I stand corrected the pitch is M8 X 1.25

    tests

    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....
