Yeah, you need to tap your hot supply into the head. (Oops :blush: ) The stock location is in between cylinder 6 and 8 spark plugs on the port side. (Cylinder #1 is starboard side near transom)

Here is a pic of the spot.

That pic is actually the head, which should work just as good as the block fitting. I guess you have two knock sensors? Mine only has one, so I used the block fitting on the other side. But yeah, water will flow through the exhaust manifold too quickly for the water to really pick up much heat as you have discovered. I assume this is a new shower install that has never worked. IE, the screen in the mixing valve isn't plugged up on the hot side?

Yes it is. That picture was actually taken in the dealer showroom from a VTX with a 383 hammerhead. I took the picture as reference when I was installing mine; connected it to the exact same location on my 340 Monsoon and it works great.

Steamy water even when pulling from a 52 degree lake.

Hey Ripp,

Wanna come down to Okotoks and install my shower?

Do you have any pics of where the pump is installed and also the mixing valve.. Also did you replace one of the ACC switches with one that has "Shower" on it?
