I need some help, im trying to install my Perfect Pass but the manual came with some old pictures, on a motor different that mine. Did some of you have pics of a PP installed on a 2004 MCX MPI???

Thanks.

I called them, my problem is that the trottle cable is in the opossite side on the MCX and the air filter doesent let the connection to be ok. The guy at PP told me to rotate the air filter to 45°. I just wanted to see how you guys have yours installed.

This is on a V-drive. On your boat, I believe that the engine is installed backwards. Note that the air filter is tilted to whatever is required to avoid the cable.

Thanks!!!The air filter is tilted just enough to clear the cable. PP calls for the servo to be mounted to one of the circulating water hoses. I mounted it on an exhaust hose because that appeared to make more sense.

does the servo has to be only on a upright position or it can be also on a vertical postion?

thanks for your help BM.

thanks for your help BM.The servo can be in any position, as long as there is no binding or sharp curves to the servo cable.

BM, no more questions. thank you very much.

You're very welcome. Hope your install goes smoothly. It's pretty straightforward on a 2004. Hardest part for my installation was getting under the dash to remove the speedometer and install the new PP gauge.
