    Well crap, it's done that since it was new. I will get Atlanta Marine to take a look. Thanks

    I've been able to get some time with the FAE and it's definitely a huge improvement. Zero changes to the wake and I'm happy about the reduced fumes, and just wish I had a way to measure the improvement.

    The new y-pipe design is awesome and looks OEM, which it probably should be as an option. Overall it's just a high quality upgrade. I'm glad to see so many people get in the group buy and am guessing there will be a lot of happy customers on here.

    I notice a major decrease in sound at start-up and idle, to the point where I can't always tell if it's running or not. Surf speeds are much quieter too and hearing the water on the sides of the hull is just as cool as people have described. Wakeboard speeds are definitely quieter than before but it's not like you're in an electric boat, and when you hammer the throttle there is still plenty of engine roar like you would expect.

    It will make winterizing super easy this year too. I'll just put a pail full of antifreeze under the FAE and run a hose from the bucket to the vdrive fake-a-lake and let it run.

    My wife said today when we were on the way to the dealer "I know you'll say I told you so, but I want our next boat to have a FAE". Then she started talking about saving money now for all of the adds we'll want to make right from the start (FAE, Exile, Ballast, and Samson mirror)... And we aren't upgrading until the 2017 model year

    Would the raw water pump have enough draw to pull from a bucket?

    Yes, that is how I do it every year now, just without the FAE to collect the antifreeze. A hose directly connected forces water through the system (at least with my water pressure and connected to the vdrive) and so the boat doesn't ever get up to temp. Using a bucket with a hose to fill you'll see the system not pull any water for awhile, then pull water in like crazy.

    Never have used the head unit so I removed it and put this slightly tacky storage container in its place.
