Indmar announced that they will be replacing the current two-piece center rise exhaust system with a one piece manifold and tuned exhaust with catalyst for all EFI models in 2007. They state it will produce no noticable reduction in power as well.

Since this will greatly reduce the CO levels, it will be a very nice improvement for WakeSurfers !

Sounds cool.

I saw that a while back and saw a pic someplace of the engine with the cats. My only question is what is it going to do to the engine prices and in turn boat prices? I can't see it being cheap. I was also wondering about replacement if the cats go bad. From the pic I saw it looked like the entire exhaust manifold would have to be replaced which would be very expensive.
