Switchable Diverters

I am thinking of putting some switchable exhaust diverters on my boat and have seen these on ebay 4557321366

Are these any good?

Will they work under the swim platform?

Will they give any performance gain on a 454 mag?

Are these a good price for what they are (the £ is strong over the $ at the moment)

Any views and opinions would be welcome guys.

They look cool .. deffo think switchables are what you want, especially when you go out with a raging hangover! Plus as said, entering snobby marinas with dirty straight throughs can be all bad, bit like taking a feck off divot on the first tee on a posh golf course ... get all sorts of evils! Nice to have the choice ... How come these ones don't use solenoids? Need some for my new boat (solenoids that is - if anyone has any spare!)

Well, no cash has exchanged hands yet, but a deal has been struck and if all goes as planned, I'll be the proud owner of an Extreme 21 on Saturday morning!

Sorry, back to the thread!

Get em!

Cool

Thats a nice boat, and its got through hull exhausts which are fitted below the swim platform. Are they switchable or straight?

Good luck with the deal
