      Hi guys! 

      As you adviced I cleaned the throttle body, and the grill between idle air valve and the tube that go to the TB (with carb cleaner).

      I cleaned the flame arrestor with carb cleaner and then put it in gasoline... and the plastic melted a bit !!! so I will buy a new one soon.

      But since I did all that, my idle is arround 900 rpm whereas It was at 600 rpm before !!! I only tested it on the rack, not on water yet...

      What is the usual idle rpm for a mercruiser mag mpi 2011 ?

      What could have changed that ?? What could I do ??


      Thanks a lot !!

      Actually there is a little circuit breaker on the engine and I accidentally pushed the red button when I was cleaning it.

      Few hours to find out that !! I didnt now I had that just next to the big plug on the engine.

      Thanks for your help!!

      I’m always down for a little project but sounds like y’all are a little more crazy than me. I have a little know how and lots of connections to help with this kind of stuff but getting the car with the $650 tow package was a no brainer.

      How are these pumps holding up? I am about to start my install on my 18 LSV but still have not got any help figuring out how factory hooked pumps up to the Raptor 410! I have a couple threads out there now fishing for help but so far nothing. The Crew is letting me down.

      The way I had installed mine last year had the impeller at a low point in the return loop. I didn't use it for about 8 months and it wouldn't spin when I tested it in the fall. Took it out, cleaned out some sediment and reinstalled in an inverted orientation. Been working great this winter.

      Okay guys, 

      I have a 1990 malibu euro f3 mystere. I’ve rebuilt the stringers and the floor and the motor is healthy with a decent comp cam. I have an 1100 pound fatsak L shape I put in the rear and a 650 that goes either in the ski locker or bow depending on how many people are on the boat. I also have a swell shaper v1 that I use. I’ve got a rideable wave. I’m just looking to see what I can do to improve it.
