    With the LS high rise manifolds what is the measurement from the centre of the port hole to the very top of the riser? Just trying to work out what room i'll have in the boat as i'm trying to put a flat deck over the engine. do you do logs for these motors? price including risers? just incase high ris ones are to high.

    Thanks again Dan
