      Question for those of you that have dealt with FAE recently. What is the best way to get in touch with them to ask questions? I've submitted messages via their website, emailed them directly and even left a voicemail on the phone number listed on their website without any response. I'm interested in ordering one for my 2011 LSV but I also have a couple questions about their muffler delete kits since the ordering info for that doesn't seem to be on their website. Just curious....thanks!

      I have a FAE with muffler delete made for a 2017 23 lsv. If you check with FAE and it will fit, I'll send it to you as long as you pay the shipping. Just PM me if you think it will work.

      I have a 2006 Malibu 23 LSV with the 383 Hammerhead (just about 300 hours). Just recently the check engine alarm comes on when the engine hits about 1000 - 1500 rpm. There are no other symptoms. I read the code using diacom and the following error comes up:

      SPN 65701 FMI 31General Warning 1 Not Available

      I've searched the diagnostic manual and it seems the code is triggered by low voltage from a sensor. I checked all the sensors that I can think of and the voltages are within 4.8 - 5.2 V. All the fluids have been replaces as well as spark plugs, the fuel filter, and the air filter.

      I'll explain what happens:

      Boat is at rest, throttle up and the alarm sounds at (usually) 1200 rpm or so. Silence the alarm by hitting the "E" button. Alarm will come back after the ~5 minute timer or so. The engine doesn't go into limp mode or anything. Absolutely no other noticeable changes occur. The coolant temp and oil pressure remain in normal ranges. The alarm does not ever come on if the engine remains below ~1200 rpm.

      Any input or experience would be of great value. Thanks in advance!

    • Could use some recommendations...   the FAE mufflers to replace the cracked silent rider on our 94 Malibu Echelon came in the mail yesterday.  Any suggestions to make it easier to get the hoses off the old muffler?

      I have a 2010 Ram 1500 that I bought used in 2013. The only repair it's needed was a coil pack a couple of years ago. It has 150k on it and runs great. I'd love a new Ram truck but the prices are too high. Besides, this one is paid off.
