I would have rather had the choice of dual exhaust and the option of adding an FAE from the factory.
going forward this will not be an issue since converting to Indmar...
all have dual exhaust :-(

I'm still getting a bit of wash on the wave, but I don't have the plate and I always got a little. I'm going to try the Duffy Mahoney flap this weekend and see if that knocks it down for good.

I also installed FAE on my 2012 B52 23V last year at the end of the season. It worked great for lowering the sound output of the motor, but I had issues similar to Shawn. I have the PCM with single exhaust,straight pipe with no turn-down tip. I do not have the extra exhaust port luckily. I noticed a bit of a drop in power, but worse, the FAE kept coming off underway. Larry sent me a stronger clamp, but even that wouldn't keep it on the tip. My tip is cut at a 45 degree angle approximately, so there isn't much surface area to grab on the bottom of the exhaust. When it came off the last time it bent the threaded rods that support the FAE, so Larry sent me new ones. I will try those this spring, but I am also going to shorten the FAE, and change the angle in hopes it won't drag as much, and hopefully stay connected. I really like what it does for the sound and emissions, but if it won't stay on it isn't very useful.

Where are you guys getting the t-bar clamps and what size are you using? Just in case I need to get some quickly.
I get the FAE tomorrow. Probably won't start that for a week or so. Still need to finish the ballast. Crossing my fingers I can get it done this weekend.

ebay. though if you want the wallet lightening gratification of RIGHT NOW, it looks like summit racing carries them. http://www.summitrac...13/media/images
With a single tip pcm exhaust DO NOT EVEN BOTHER with the worm drive hose clamps. you'll likely bend or break something and the FAE is nearly guaranteed to fall off. Even if you double clamp everywhere. The T-bar clamps just get soooo much tighter.

I just placed an order through the local O' Reilly store. They have two of these available and two more coming from California. I didn't have to pay for them to order them, so I am curious what you think of these. They say 3/4", so I wonder if I can double them - do you think I will have enough room? Since I am not planning on working on this until next week, I have time to order the ones from summit if absolutely necessary.
