Too much Vroom-vroom at startup

Well, I went to run my boat to see how the new manifold was going to perform. Unfortunately, I didn't get off the trailer. When I cranked, the motor reved up close to 3000 rpms. I immediately killed the engine. I think they plugged the perfect pass in crossways or something. It seems like it's engaging the throttle when I turn the key on. I didn't pay very close attention before. It's at SWCC to be looked at. I don't expect it to be a big deal, but anyone have a sneak preview for me of what I can expect?

Wow, that is frustrating. But, like you said it is probably something simple.

Next time you look at it, make sure the throttle plate closes the way it should, and check for any place that looks like air could get into the intake without being controlled by the throttle. It could be that the new manifold is higher and the throttle cable needs to be adjusted. Remove it from the carb and see if the idle is normal. If it isn't normal and the throttle plate is where it should be, there's a vacuum leak somewhere and I would start looking at the base of the carb.

Talking

Isn't what you were hoping for?
Bling Bling in exchange of more Vroom Vroom?

Did SWCC did the install?
I would have think that whoever did the job would at least strart it after finishing...

SWCC did not do the install, but they get to fix it. I had a local auto mechanic do it for me. They are very good engine people, but at this point, I want people who are very familiar with all things marine getting it shipshape. I'm not planning to deal with this problem for a second next season.

Exclamation 295 Hp ?

Well well.I see that you already have change your signature HP?
Shouldn't you get your boat in "Running order" before you can estimate that HP increase?
Isn't that 4160 less cfm's then your previous carb?
No way i'm gonna let you get close to that 300 hp without a fight...
Brian ,Ruling please...
Just kidding here

Yeah, but notice it says "est." short for estimate.

4160 has the same I believe (600 cfm). Since the carb switch, I've gotten more speed at lower revs.

Since the intake switch, I've gotten much higher revs at low speed . 3000 RPM at zero mph.

I'm w/ Jim, Doug. Most likely throttle out of adjustment. Did your mech start it after the manifold swap?
