There are other locations as well where it can easily go. The factory one installed in my 2008 is actually mounted up under the passenger side flip up seat in the storage area. It is attached to the fiberglass which makes up the back of the bow seating and as is the case with most MC things, the engineers thought this thru and put backing material in that location so that you can mount right to it.

Moral of the story, if you want one in your boat, we can find a spot to hide it!

Good moral. Of course behind the passenger seat is where I have my 2nd battery, sub woofer and amps...

Maradyne weighs in

Double D, I must say I love the quote! I sent it to my two kids in college (one in Pre-law and one in Poli Sci). As for the web store, we are actively looking to get that set up soon. If there are items missing in any kits that require "trips to the store", please let us know. That is the type of feedback we look for from the public and what we learn from setting up installs. We never stop trying to evolve the product offerings. As for the celebrity chosen for the install, that is only because I have a face for radio.

This is cool and will probably make it into my boat. What is the average cost on one of these units though?

I bought the unit through a mate here in Aus that imports boats, but I believe they are better priced than heatercraft

On my 08 X14 the heater wiring was clearly labeled 'heat hi' and 'heat low'. My install listed here.

Ok so wiring is sorted and unit puts out really good air, only cold at this stage as my next step is to connect heater hoses to engine.
Maradyne supply 2 straight threaded brass fittings, so i guess these both get threaded into engine for in flow and out flow.
I have located 1 location on top of engine near thermostat, so ok with that.
Just not sure with the 2nd location on engine as its not clear on their install vid. Also other installs i have read mention a Y or T fitting from Skidim into the raw water pickup, but as this kit comes complete i am just gonna use their supplied fittings.
Can anyone shed some clarity on this 2nd location to fit a straight fitting?
Help appreciated as I'm heading back to the boat storage today to complete install
Cheers

I used the newer 3 vent heater craft, had everything I needed, including the Y fitting.

My install was a 2008 Xstar LY6 motor. I believe the idea behind the Y fitting was to reduce the flow and when you see it you will know why. where is comes back in is a small hole drilled in the Y fitting. keeps the hot water backed up into the heater core moreso.

That being said Im sure the Maradyne are good products, and I do not want to take away from there product, just my experience with an install, actually 2, I did my X15 as well.
