I would guess those are a little more expensive than going the skidim route.

LOL, They are nice but damn I got quoted $2500 for my 454 for the Hi-teks. Im trying to justify getting these with the weight and fuel savings. Maybe we should try a group buy ; P

I heard a nasty rumor we may be seeing $5 per gallon gas in 2012. You'll be kicking yourself if that happens and you didn't get them. And if you get them and gas prices stay where they are, you'll have those bad boys on your boat and won't care! :)

The Hi-Teks also flow much better than stock iron pieces.


5 BUCKS A GALLON!!! I think I am going to find a way to convert everything I own to bio fuel. Screw that crap! NO reason for the higher prices right now!

That isn't a prediction - its a goal. We're getting screwed at 3 bucks a gallon as it is.

If they jack it up to 5, they will run out of customers pretty quick. I don't think our economy is robust enough to handle another blow like that very easily. I hope someone out there invents something that will turn this around. ( Somehow, I don't think iPhones and Facebook is gonna do it.)

I don't want to threadjack so, I did put new iron on my 93. How well will these hi-tech manifolds and risers hold up to some pretty backish salt water?

Thanks to the socialist regime the U.S. has lost any hope of producing enough oil to influence costs. Not to mention their refusal to stand up to the terrorist money machine called OPEC. Glad I am a swerver, I only need a few gallons a weekend.

Not sure, but I would assume Stainless has got to be about the same if not better.

If gas prices go up to $5, I'll be selling an 89 Prostar this spring! I'm already forking out $100 a wk with the amount of skiing I do.
