So this is my 2003 X 30.

I started this winter with the thought it was time to check the risers. From there it has escalated into a series of one more thing........ That being said I truly enjoy getting into the projects. Attached are some of the photos. New Risers and Exhaust manifolds that had rusted heads and had to be ground
off. New thermostat and upper and lower housing. Degreased the engine and will be spraying the block with a new coat of paint. New impeller, new plugs and distributer cap. The interior had some minor tears and cracks in about 7 spots enough to drive me nuts and make me commit to a new interior. I will be sending it out the skins tomorrow to be done. I will keep posting pics as I go.

Here is fine. If it wasn't then a mod would have moved it.

Looking forward to seeing your project.

I sent them down to Jim at Viper Customs. Heard great things about here on team talk about him. His pricing was very reasonable. I will be posting the after pics as well.

You got a bit mean with the rocker cover, better get one or two of them whilst you are tidying her up :D Great progress

I know right??? Yes I forgot to list it but I was able to get both port and starboard in the red. Cant wait to put them on. The manifolds were horrific to get off. Pry bars and all.

Those riser look soooo nice.. How many hours on engine.... where did you pick up the manifolds and risers? Nice work on the restoration.

I got the manifolds, risers, valve covers, ignition coil thermostat housing and all gaskets through my local dealer NEFWM. Paid a little more , but it was worth it in the sense I could call and get all the tips of advice I needed. THey are always very helpful. I'll be putting in the new dials this week.

Does any one know where I can get a ignition plate for this boat???

Why did you not go with the one piece ETX manifolds

They do make a difference in performance

Honestly I didnt even know it was an option. Wish I had it looks look like a good idea. Aside from the lower emisions is there a hp increase? If so how much?

On a seperate note, Jim at viper is finishing the new interior...
