Hey Jason, how are things in the Great White North?
I've had the FAE on my '03 Tige 23V for...shoot, I think this will be the third season.
Pretty much does exactly what it says. Quieted my boat by probably 50%. This was an unexpected benefit. My boat was really very loud and after installing FAE the difference was dramatic.
It also eliminates virtually all "noticeable" trace of exhaust fumes from my boat both at the rider area and inside the boat. I haven't attempted to read it with any equipment, but in the two years we've used it you just don't notice any fumes.
It was easy to install, and I understand that the current versions have improvements over mine.
I've never had an issue with handling or failure in the 2+ years I've used mine.
