Boat is 2013 HPX-T. Has Bobs jp, Yama F-70, Foreman hole shot prop. Motor
mounted as high as it can be. 30psi up to 3.5 inch on jb. Above 4 that goes to zip,
but still pea,s out tube. Have been chicken to try start above that or run above that.
Has good hole shot and runs shallow. I feel like I want to be able to use all the jb.
Question is what type pick up. Nose cone or transom mount. Forgot, also cougar
Cav plate Thanks in advance.

I look forward to seeing your setup. I've been looking for flared screens to run on the '89 Evinrude 15hp that will propel the FRS-14 build.

Still waiting on machined units in aluminum and hopefully UHMW polyethylene. I’d appreciate it if no one tries to poach this design and sell it. Copy it if you want but don’t be a cheesedick and try to sell these. I don’t have time to fab any one offs right now and the guy I was working with has been bowed up fishing and buulding a boat.
My prototype has been on my HPX Tunnel for over a year with zero issues and no changes. The lower unit is 20 years old so she’s about to get a prep and paint job. Enjoy!

A brass high speed pick up on an bracket works well, if you don't have the machining and welding skills.

Will both the transom mount and nose cone allow me to run the jp full up and still
have good water pressure.

I run my Bobs JP up to 6 and the foot is still in the water and peeing. I don't have a water guage but it hasn't blown up yet. I can run 1.5' while its jacked up. I just use it to get off a flat and don't run it long
