    Are you talking about the gravity bilge tube or the anti-siphon tube for the bilge pump?

    The first thing I did was block off the gay spray.

    The speed gain from removing the siphon tube is very small...maybe .1-.2 or less is my guess on a SHO, and you will no longer have a working siphon bilge. Not worth it IMO. Even if you don't ocean ride, all it takes is a cooling hose to come off & you will be at the mercy of the electric bilge. The reason we do it on the GPR is because we use the thru-hull for the siphon bilge for a jetworks kit to dry out the waterbox to improve holeshot. Therefore the tube is useless anyway, which is why most people remove it. If you want to remove the visibility spout, you can grind the bump inside the nozzle flush & fill the tube with JB weld. If you are determined to remove the siphon tube, at least replace the drain plugs with some versiplugs from pwcdoctor.com.

    well since no one has try to do this i guess im gonna be the first and go from there . if i can get 50 rpm like the GPRs do its worth it.

    I use them on my GPR because I run open throttle bodies & I'm always parynoid about water ingestion, so a very dry hull is a must. I like them a lot. I used to have duckbills, but decided to change them out after hearing how easy it is for a little debris to make them leak.
