  • Fresh air exhaust on newer models

    We're considering putting FAE on our XT23... I absolutely love the boat but the 6.2 is pretty dang loud. I have heard there can be some warranty issues for boats with the aftermarket system. Does anyone know if this is true? Has anyone put it on a boat with an Ilmor engine? TIA

    Not sure this counts as newer model, but have it is on an Ilmor MV8 6.2L engine. I have FAE and their mufflers installed on my 2014 X25. I also put sound insulation on every surface of my engine compartment. Made a world of difference in reducing the noise levels. With the stereo off, I can have a conversation with the surfer at near normal conversational voice levels. Makes teaching folks much nicer. Also made a huge difference for surfer and even wakeboarders hearing the stereo w/o having it cranked up nearly as loud. Makes a lot of folks in my family much happier being in the boat.

      Had one on our old XT23 with the 5.3 GDI. Never had any issues with it. Funny - we find the 6.2 GDI on our XT24 to be pretty quiet and will most likely not install an FAE.

        Which sound deadening material did you use?
