I have an 06 x2 non saltwater series with an rtp-1. The boat is perfect except for some rust on the manifolds and motor mounts. Are their any manifolds and motor mounts designed for salt. I know Indmar is now making a 5.7L saltwater engine, would they sell me the motor mounts for the saltwater series to use for my engine? Also would crusader angine mounts work with my engine? I came across GLM manifolds which are cast iron but are hot dipped galvanized before they are painted, according to their add they are good for salt, anyone ever used these?

The fact that you have an RTP maybe of some help. Those are CAST
exhaust manifolds. Do you have a CLOSED COOLING system on the boat? 1/2 system ORCA? The motor mounts need to be sprayed with T-51 so they do not rust.

The exhaust manifolds will last just as long as any other ones.
Only if you do any adequate job of flushing the motor. EVERYTIME
