Yes, it is great. I have never had an issue with mine, fires right up every time, cold, hot, snowing it don't matter. Well worth the money. You will be happy as hell and there customer support is awesome, great people to deal with. My brother is putting it on his new motor, out with the carb and in with the injection. It is pricy that's why a lot of people avoid it, but you are getting brand new stuff. Contact Al at performance airboats or warrior engines, both numbers are in my signature block.

10 4 I saw they are pricey but I'd rather have something that works correctly than dealing with my temperamental injection........ Do you take your boat to them & they install it or do they ship it to you & you install it?

looks like between 2500 and 3100 depending on engine horsepower rating and servo size

Contact Al at performance airboats and tell him dan sent you, he's got it down and can walk you through the process. He knows what you need and don't need we also found places that carry some of the same parts for less money. Airflow is second to none when it comes to injection.

They send it to you and you install, if your in the central fl area I would contact Al and have him order and install it for you, so he can show you something's.

:old_glory: There is nothing wrong with your Bendix system. Call airflow directly great guy's send them your servo,injectors and flow divider. They will rebuild it and set it up perfectly on their flow bench dialed right in for your combination. No need to go spend 3200$ on their's not worth the little gain if any over what you have and that cost me $700.00 to redo. I did on my angle valve 0540 ran absolutely perfect. fired right up all the time. Just wondering if your running a rotory romec style pump or are you running a high pressure diaphram plunger pump ?

All injection is temperamental you have to get system clean then go from there

I have the same motor, I sold the bendix and went to a carb, ran better, starts better, I would either get Continental injection or a carb. I went to injection on my airplane and it made little if any difference.
