    So went pretty well. Made the last of the electrical connections. Have to make a new throttle linkage. Primed the oiling system.

    She fired right away on the old tune but unfortunately the ECU would not talk to the laptop so we couldn't adjust any of the parameters. We did a bunch of trouble shooting and we think we found the issue. But we also ran out of time. The main thing is she ran. 10 seconds but she ran. I will leave the boat in courtenay. Dad will work on the ECU and get a base tune. This Thursday I am heading up to Nootka sound with a buddy and his boat so there won't be any updates for a week or so but I'm a happy camper.

    Ok. Where do I start?

    This whole Photobucket thing really pissed me off. I have several builds on several sites, some spanning 10 years just gone now. So that was really disheartening. Been a busy summer. Several fishing trips. Several Batchelor parties. Seveveral work commitments. Also got into motorcycles. Um... ya... well that turned out to be pretty addicting. Bought a honda Shadow 750. Then got into a Harley sportster. Put a preorder in aug for a 2018 Indian scout bobber. Sold everything else. Finally took ownership in the beginning of oct. She makes my heart tingle.

    So all that happened. I also had an exhaust leak in my manifolds. A few small ones. Pin hole leaks. Thought I had them. But I had water coming out of my exhaust tubes and soaking my O2 sensors. This baffled me as I pressure tested both sides before closing them in. So I unfortunately ended up cutting one open.

    Did a full leak down. Looked for bubbles. But nothing. Not a single one. I got frustrated and even pressurized it to 60psi. Rubbermaid bucket full of water. Not a bubble.

    So after a few weeks of feeling defeated. Kept on thinking about it. And I hope I'm right. But both sides leak. The do the exact same thing. They shoot water out the O2 bung with each exhaust pulse. My theory is that the exhaust turn down is not enough and it's back sucking water from the exhaust turn down. As both sides have similar characteristics.

    We then lengthened the exhaust tube by 4"

    I had read somewhere previously that it was possible to suck up water. So let's see if this is the resolve. I will be reinstalling tomorrow
