    Interesting

    Ive thought for yrs that was the answer.
    Done right it'd be stronger than the OEM casting.
    So you'd be away from Merc controlling rules on our powerheads and mids.
    I read somewhere that Ron Hill suggested casting a speed master housing from stainless.
    Do that w/some improvements and you'd now have an APBA legal motor w-no political manipulation from any engine mfgs and run any powerhead you desired ��

    Top flange , bottom flange , some mounting bosses , some star wars-y looking corrugation on your outside panels and the same for some "baffles" inside and you would have a light weight bad azz can for not a lot of money ...
    I'd rather be competitive w/junk I built in my garage than win w/stuff I bought.

    I believe this is my saddle bracket. I race with it offshore and its so much stronger than stock. I have no worries about going out in the rough stuff and making it back in all intact.
    Chaz is the man and very talented and a great easy guy to work with.

    Yes sir Mercracer that's you swivel bracket ...


    The late model plenum with early hardware was an attempt at building an inexpensive alternative to buying a 300x reed adapter plate .
    My original idea was to drill and tap the plastic (phenolic) block to bolt the reed blocks to . I chickened out , thinking that the threads might melt , so instead I sandwiched a opti reed plate on the far side because it was radiused pretty good and had the factory threads . I did move each pair of injectors closer to each other and made my own fuel rail and tabbed and spacer mounted it to the opti plate . Worked well , I just didn't like the idea of the injector close to the corner of the port . I built a couple then moved onto the 2 1/2" thick aluminum slabs ...

    "We have been whittling on a couple of slabs of aluminum, that will move the injectors outside like a X motor. Along with a few other subtle improvements over the production piece ..

    I have another setup that we are ready to test and do any final tweeks that might come up, that will be a bunch cheaper than buying all the parts from Merc to do an outside injector conversion on a 3.0L which will fit under any year cowling .. "
