    Default Loud exhaust on LSV

    This 2013 LSV is my first V Drive boat. I've owned 8 I/O's, so I am not new to boating, only new to this drive system. Am I the only owner who thinks these boats are much loader than an I/O? The exhaust sounds at mid range rpm's are louder than I expected. Any solutions such as switching to quiter muffler?

    FAE. Three birds with one stone. Stereo upgrade, no stationwagon effect, quieter, almost eliminated exhaust sound. My brother owns a io Bayliner and he said my Supra is quiter than his from the beach.

    Forgive me for stating the obvious, but the big diff here is that IO exhaust is coming out under the water through the prop, unless a guy is running the capt's call out the sides.

    The V-drive exhaust is underwater at idle, but once you're moving it's basically open air and yes, will definitely be louder.

    The FAE or fresh air exhaust mentioned would definitely be a winner and good investment. It will put your exhaust output down to a comparable level to the IO, plus the other gains mentioned.

    This is what you're looking for (photo courtesy of Mandley)

    I was not familiar or aware of a FAE. Looks simple, yet directs the exhaust lower into the water as an I/O does. What is estimated cost of this, and any warranty issues with my new boat? Where do you purchase a FAE, my boat dealer or from the web. Neat idea.

    I am not 100% but I think you are looking at about $500 or so, depending on your specific choices. You can price it out on the website.
