Alright guys. Did some more testing. I finally came up with a way to test my stainless marine risers. And. . . . . . .

one of my stainless marine risers was leaking from the water jacket into the exhaust pipe. It was a very small leak, but definately was leaking. Probably leaked more once heated up. The leak was also on the side that was visibly worse.

I tested both manifolds again and found no leaks.

So, I will replace both SM risers.
Or, will replace exh altogether.

Looking for good exhaust for reasonalbe price that will support 650 hp, for Bravo application.

Thanks again for all the great input from everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have another suggestion! Fairly important IMO, with long tails no one should use anything but the very soft/flexible exhaust hose. This is especially true with SM setups, their ring connection does not have the support of a typical four bolt connection. That was the reason I did not buy SM, being a mech for many years it just does not look substantial enough. Sorry to hurt a few feelings but I like things that do not give me any misgivings.
