    Yes. I would inspect/clean/test the trim box. Best to do it know while the engine is out. Mine wasn't any good so I modded a Ultra 150 trim box for my zxi.

    Looks like you are on the right track for hull mods. These zxi's like to porpoise (bounce) real bad. You can learn to adjust your riding style and trim setting to help the ride but, the sponsons and ride plate will make a huge difference.

    Of course, if you are like me, you want to get it running before you worry too much about accessories.

    I love my zxi. It is real playful. there are normally real reliable. I have had mine for three years without a hip-cup.

    Except for the trim mod, the only other thing I have done is installed a bilge pump.

    You have a great project!! Keep the updates (and pictures) coming.

    trim motor

    Works fine. The box was clean and dry. This extra boot they have, does it go inside the box? As for the motor itself, its not much different than an RC motor. The armature would probably fit in the lathe I have.

    Pissers

    I read you can drill and tap the stock head. Anyone have a pic as to where to drill the head.

    Frankenstien

    I rounded up a bilge pump from a boat I scrapped. The easiest place I found to put it is behind the battery. Thats not a low point in the hull though. Anyone have a better suggestion. And placement of the exit nozzle. I was thinking in the middle under the grab bar.

    The idea is to split them up into 3 separate lines. If you are good with a torch the you should collapse the channels from head to head. If you don't want to do a triple set up then I would at least add one to the front as well as the stock system due to the front cyl over heating issue that many of them had.
    I think the best place for the pissers is the front right side because that is where they are easy for me to see. Some prefer higher and some people move them all over. If they are for cooling you should be able to see them though.
    Also, use strait fittings and not 90* as the strait ones will clog less.
