Why are you making custom risers instead of buying them?

you will need a tube in a tube to cool them.

the outlet angle looks to be more difficult to work with. I'm trying to keep the alpha 1 prop exhaust rather than knocking holes through the hull/transom.

Ok but you still need to water jacket the custom riser. On marine application all exhaust components are water jacketed as they are very hot and in confined space surrounded by flamable material.

Looks good but plastic components in the fuel line is a big Nono for the CG. That includes plastic inline fuel filters.

the only plastic about it is the flex hose from the pump to the fitting. It is EFI fuel line, designed for in tank use. I am using A/N style hose and fittings for the external connections. Not skimping on junk.
