I also spent a lot of time trying to get the plastic block manifold hose connectors screwed into the block. The threads just did not seem right and I was afraid of them breaking in the block. I have written them on this to see if this was a common issue. The kit came with 4 brass fittings and 2 plastic fittings along with another fitting if you require a knock sensor connection. I would have preferred to use the brass fittings but the threads were not the correct size.( I was installing on a 4.3 V6)

Once installed it is very quiet to use and very easy.


I was told by my mechanic to let the engine cool prior to flushing with this system as it does not make sence to run cold water thrue a hot engine.

Sounds like that mechanic doesn't know much. Unless you are in the south, any time the boat is in the water you are running cold water through a hot engine. What is the average summer water temp in Mass?

Not THAT much different than southern Maine to make a difference. All of which is STILL colder than the average temp coming out of a garden hose. If you don't think so, hose yourself down with a garden hose, THEN jump in the ocean and tell me which is COLDER. (Or vice versa) LMAO!!!

A couple installed pics. If you do get this, do yourself a favor. Take the bag of hose clamps that come with it and throw them in the trash and get some decent brand name ones.
