2003 X30 Ballast Upgrade

IT takes forever to fill all my bags with the 1 hole in the bottom of the boat. Trying to build up the courage to drill two more holes in the bottom of the boat to remove that common header set up.

Any advice on how to or where to put them?

Think I need one more side hole since I all the ballast blows out 2 holes now and I have 3 pumps.

Have a look at this thread. I did exactly what you are thinking of doing. You should definitely DO IT.
Also, you have to remove the manifold.
