I have an '04 B52v3 and have been looking into aftermarket exhaust pipes like the stock newer MB boats. My dealer says it is a royal pain in the butt. Has anyone successfully purchased and installed aftermarket exhaust pipes for an MB or similar boat?

Do you mean from the block out or exhaust tips? I have FAE installed and it wasn't an issue.

Exhaust tips

I heard the same thing from my dealer... a major pain in the butt (pipes run thru the transom, that would require some fiberglass rework, maybe some tinkering with the block or manifold, etc.) I think it can be done, but the dealers don't want to do it or don't have anybody capable.
It sucks cause the turned down exhaust tips look fuggin sweet. I have a '05, MB changed to pipes in '06

I think the FAE looks pretty good plus it quiet downs the exhaust note which makes it easier to hear the tunes!

Browny, Goodwin wakesurf company is gonna be doing custom FAE but I think they're gonna be using carbon fiber. They've done a bunch of crap on my boat this year and do an awesome job. I'll be doing a thread when everything is done.
