Aren't they purdy. I didn't go for the polished ones, trying to save a few bucks. I got them because we run in Salt Water. They are supposed to give a few more HP though!! Looking forward to getting them on the boat.

Not familiar with this type of riser....what are the benefits??

Stainless Steel, won't rust!! Anyway that is my main concern. The other benefits are added Horse Power and looks I guess. Check out their website. The polished ones are really nice!!

If you don't mind me asking, what did those beauties cost you?

I don't mind.... they cost a small fortune!!haha

No seriously they are over 2000$ and even more if you get them fully polished! For me they are worth it! They are only a bit more than the regular ones, once you add everything up, and these should last indefinately!

Super nice product and phenomenal customer service. I sent an email to HiTek and they gave me a call within 24 hours. $2000 is just out of my price range. I figure I can keep doing the $350 Skidim replacements every few years instead. Be sure and keep the board updated Carlos, and let us know how much of an improvement you get in power and fuel economy. Pictures of those puppies installed would be sweet as well.

sorry for being dumb, but why would you want to go these versus a regular one or a skidim one?

There are definitely power gains, as these are a true header style manifold. Not sure about economy- but I can tell you that I burn a lot of gas running at WOT.:D

UA, these are high quality stainless steel, so they'll outlast the stock cast iron manifolds- especially if you run in salt like Carlos. At 12 lbs a piece, they trim 80 lbs from the boat. They also improve performance and look terrific. Other than the pricetag, why WOULDNT you want a set of these?

I wasn't even aware of the weight gains... or losses as the case may be!! cool!!
