Hi , i made up my mind.. 08 vtx 340 monsoon. FULLY loaded(got some ideas from another build sheet.)

What is the pylon chrome up grade.. tower post or skiing post?

what the hell is aquamat sterling up grade carpet and do i want it

what is the average wake height wiht a full ballast system with bow tank and wedge down(vtx)?

does malibu offer a type of rack that has the lever to open and close on a board..etc? if so can it still swing out?

do racks rattle and make u go nuts?

how much quieter is ste quipped exhaust systems?

anyone have the swim deck lights.. above the water on the stern like in the build up section on bu.com? i told my dealer i want them (already equipped with below water line too(yayyy me)

if the deck cracks where the tower meets..is that a warranty?

can a auto scanner(eg. snap on) scanner pull codes on the indmar engine?

thanks,

Don

Congrats on the new boat!!! I am going to attempt to help you out!

What is the pylon chrome up grade.. tower post or skiing post?

Rear ski Post at sundeck level, Chromed instead of brushed aluminum.

what the hell is aquamat sterling up grade carpet and do i want it?

I saw it at the factory. It is more Silver-ish than grey. I think it premiered in the Silver Edition boats

what is the average wake height wiht a full ballast system with bow tank and wedge down(vtx)?

I have a 23LSV, don't know...

does malibu offer a type of rack that has the lever to open and close on a board..etc? if so can it still swing out?

Not that I know of, but most dealers will also order you other types of racks. For example, my dealer loves to sell Titan racks with spinner attachments.

do racks rattle and make u go nuts?

My first set of stock malibu racks did have "board clap" (two boards hit each other because the middle post wasn't long enough) Otherwise, no rattle.

how much quieter is ste quipped exhaust systems?

IMHO, I think it is MUCH quieter than the standard flaps. My 06 23LSV had flaps, my 08 23LSV has Turn Down STEs. HUGE difference. The Turn downs are hard to come by these days (as shown in the brochures) I have seen a lot of 45 cutoff degree straight pipe STEs

anyone have the swim deck lights.. above the water on the stern like in the build up section on bu.com? i told my dealer i want them (already equipped with below water line too(yayyy me)

I want them, but don't have them. They seem to be a mystery to my dealer.... The bottom ones, I do have though...

if the deck cracks where the tower meets..is that a warranty?

Gelcoat, warranty for a limited time, Actual Fiberglass, I think that is lifetime..

can a auto scanner(eg. snap on) scanner pull codes on the indmar engine?

Great question, I don't know!!!

I believe that all info is correct above, but I am SURE that someone will correct me if I am wrong!!

My 2007 RLXi was able to display engine codes in the dash display with the right menu selections. I am sure that there is much more information available with the PC hook up, but it was helpful to be able to look for error codes from the drivers seat.
