Exhaust Manifold to J-Pipe Ring damaged
I recently upgraded with several parts. I had to make a repair today to the connection into the Ride Plate (was leaking antifreeze). During the repair I had to pull the J-Pipe.
I noticed the ring at the end of the exhaust manifold where it connects to the J pipe had seems to have disintegrated some. In other words, the ring has a spot where the ring is no longer 100% there. It seem to be missing. I also noticed some "grainy" or "salty" looking pieces where the J-Pipe and manifold meet.
I rode about 1.5 weeks ago and never had any high temp alarms or any issues. Any thoughts?

Sounds like you are running a little lean and melting the manifold bell.

Thanks for the response. I don't have an AF monitor installed yet. I do have some 42 lb injectors that I have not yet installed. Should I install the 42s yet? (I was planning on waiting until the Fizzle intercooler install.)

I would. You are very borderline with the g-wheel and shorty freeflow exhaust with the cooler temps you are probably seeing.

Exactly what mods are in your boat??If all the mods you listed in your sig. is in your boat right now then NO you dont need to put the 42s in..The 38s are fine..My wifes boat is running almost the same identical mods except for the prop and her ski is running with no issues...

Thanks for the thoughts. All the mods in signature is exactly what I ran last time. The air and water are starting to get cooler. I have an AF bung but no meter as of yet. Need to sell some bats to pay for one!
What is the worst case if the bell melts all the way? (I don't want to do any damage.)
I can swap to the 42s, no problem, but don't want to make a mistake and run too rich.
I know getting the AFR gauge is essential, I just cannot do it now....

I would rather be a little rich than lean and adding fuel will cool your EGT.

With the stock IC the 42s might be a tad to much till you get Fizzles IC installed..As far as the bell being burnrd i have had no issues running mine..Just make sure your J-pipe and exhaust manifold flange is sealing so your not leaking exhaust gases back into the engine compartment..
