    Yeah, I get it! It's a bit of a monster for that (though I got it wrong, he has a SL not an SE), but we have a lot of ski die hards in the family. Before we bought the Mojo, we tried skiing behind his boat and found it to be a lousy experience, mostly due to the rooster tail from the surf pipe. We were used to big shoulders on the wake since we have mostly skied behind stern drive boats so we weren't bothered by the hills. The Mojo outperformed any stern drive we have ever had once we loaded it up with about 50% ballast up front.

    Rooster tail is not caused by surf pipe, its from the hull and prop.

    Anyone want to comment on the noise level of these motors in at least the Max? Maybe its the whole Moomba line? FAE didn't make a noticeable difference. They were both loud. It was a major put off and the first thing my wife said we'd have to address. She wasn't happy.

    You need to add some dynamat sound deadening to the front and sides of the engine compartment. It helps but no where near as quite as the pre raptor boats.

    The transmission tunnel is a good place to Dynamat as well.

    Default Max vs Craz: Surf Wave Only

    Plus dynamat adds ballast.

    Maybe Supras are quieter, but I dont find the Raptor loud at all.

    I don't find the raptor itself loud but the vdrive screams like a banshee.
    I used Noico (dynamat) to do the trans tunnel and it helped a bit.
    I'm hoping they will update their specs to allow the use of gear oil instead of transmission fluid in the vdrive, that would quiet it down considerably.

    We are comparing the noise to our old RZX3. We didn't find it loud at all. Talking to each other and to the surfer was easy. The radio did not need to be full blast to hear it. I thought about products like Dynamat or the knockoffs. They don't absorb noise as much as prevent vibration noise. The tige engine bay was lined with an actual insulation product of some sort. Should have looked to see what the Max had, if anything.

    My 06 lsv was super quite with an FAE, like you can whisper and actually have a conversation a surf speeds. The raptor motor is way louder.. �� Now you have to yell or and say what? Huh?

    The raptor exhaust is next to the rear bench seat and facing towards the cabin area where you sit. Previous models the exhaust was facing back towards the rear.
