I?m looking for some headers for my jet boat I got mine and I had some old ones given to me but I believe they are bent down or they go down because they are very close to the paint so I was looking for possibly a different style to help me out if anyone has any headers to let Go. Unless these are how they are supposed to be but I?ve never had a boat with that low of headers .

Has anyone made the launch from the Riverside in Laughlin to pirates cove ? I want to try it but I don?t think it?s possible without fueling up again .

Are you aware of the Bassett T valve? It can give a mist at idle depending on water pressure from the jet. Restrictors can be inserted into the inlet of the water injection lines to lower the volume as well.

I am but I?ve heard that a lot don?t run those just because they have had tiny rocks get sucked into them and can cause them to get stuck open and hydro lock their engines

Before you do a berk swap, I'd tear into the Jacuzzi WJ and freshen it up. And see what's in there.

The WJ pump was the first pump too break 100 mph, way back in 1970 (or '71). A nearly stock WJ pump could handle 1500 hp (Hurry'Round Hondo)

Looks like you already have a diverter,
Just need a loader, shoe, and ride plate.

Otherwise, the dimensions of a berk are slightly larger than a WJ intake housing, and is a pretty straightforward swap, assuming you can set the intake. If doing the swap, now would be a good time to look into a set back pump, I don't know if that hull would benefit from a set back.
BTW, what hull mfg is it?

Just my $0.02

I talk to a few shops local in SoCal , they said it would be a project but I?ve wanted a set back pump and I have a berk complete just a regular 12 jc , so it probably wouldn?t benefit that much but it?s something I?ve always took an interest in and wanted to try it for myself  , this hull is made by jemcraft it is a 73 southwind

I want to swap the jacuzzi out of my hull , it?s not in the best shape and I want to put more power to it than the old motor that was in it ( believe 455 olds ) I just bought it a year ago and I got a 540 bbc ready to go for it , so does any one know or could point me in the right direction because I?d like to make this boat a set back pump setup preferably a dominator set up , everyone is going to say it?s to much work but I?m willing for the fiber glass challenge so any set back pump guys know where I could pick up one of these pumps up at or anyone selling a  Berkeley or dominator pump ?

What are you going to run for power? Im running a 455 olds 40 over, stroked, big valve C heads.

Sent from my LM-V405 using SoCal Jet Boats mobile app
Its going to be a 350 bored 40 over soon to be 60 then stroker crank big aluminum heads potentially a blower on about 4 to 8 pounds of boost.it will make about 400 to 500 hp without the blower.. big blocks are common I wanted to do something different.

Is it a wj or yj...a wj is a split bowl and you can add a place diverter they are just a little more costly...i have a wj and have had no problems with it...

Sent from my LM-V405 using SoCal Jet Boats mobile app
it doesn't have anything so I'm assuming a wj.. it's a pretty old jet and my parents had to have it serviced and once more before that.. I dont have problems it's more I'm looking what I can do to either make it stronger or a different jet.. because I'm building a new motor that's going to make alot more power than the stock motor that was in it.

before you go down that rabbit hole, what are your goals, hows the boat run now? sometimes its easier to find a boat with a pump you want rather then swap it out, unless you have a lot of time and fiberglass skills.
Jet Boat Performance has a kit that changes out the bowl to be able to add droops and place diverters. search the forum its came up several times. from what I've read the cost/ performance from an energizer kit you're better off getting a different boat with the pump you want. unless you're having problems with your pump now, run what you got...  https://www.jetboatperformance.com/jet-boat-parts-and-services-atascad-1

good luck
thank you ..my new motor is going to double what the old one made .. I know certain shafts etc can only handle a certain amount of power I'm just preparing just in case mine breaks if I can repair it or not.. but thank you very much.
