2015 23LSV LS3 through hull pipe question

Recommended Posts

ThinkinBu

Hey, does anyone know if the through hull pipes are two pieces or one? I am battling with an FAE install and trying to confirm I have the correct parts before wasting more time.

Please don't direct me to FAE, that is a longer story.

New part from FAE....IMG_3703_zpssnjfwth5.jpg

No flange, so does this mount inside the flange on the boat after removing the factory tube?

I had regular flappers on my LS3 before installing the FAE. My 2013 had turn down STE's. I had to remove the STE's and replace with standard flapper housings on the 2013 to install the FAE. If the straight pipes are like the STE's, they are 1 piece. screwed and glued to hull. They were a pain to remove. Loosened hose clamps inside engine compartment, removed screws on outside. Used small plastic shims to get under STE flanges and worked them around until they came loose. Then they just slide right out.

Here's a couple threads on it:

Your install looks clean! The pieces i have don't seem to line up well. Mounted the support bar and tried to line everything up, but the bends just don't come together. I will give it a go again tomorrow.
