    Stock water cooling issues?

    I've herd rumors that you need to bore out the intake tube with a drill and drill bit to make it wider and to suck in more water? Is this true? If so is there a better upgrade for a water cooling system for it instead?

    I have seen similar information. Mine seems to work ok but when i blow air thru with my mouth it seems restricted.
    It seems to cool the motor ok. Don

    As long as you can see a decent stream of water coming out from the side of the boat, I wouldn't worry too much about it.

    I can't see a stream where I run (to much spray) but ran again today and cooling jacket temp was 95 on 5 minute run. When I put the boat away water comes out of pickup tube so it must be working. Don

    It sounds like yours is working fine based on the lower temperatures.
