The Seaward exhaust systems will be the biggest market changing product to debut in 2016. These exhaust systems were not only created using the most modern robotic electronic machine operations but with state of the art tooling. What does all of this mean? It means you can now buy the very best reliable performance exhaust manifold system that money can buy for a whole lot less money.
Hardin looked at the exhaust market in the same fashion the worlds top manufactures have in that through the most modern state of the art design and production efficiency we could build the best product and reduce the overall cost by hundreds of dollars over anything even remotely comparable in the world today
The SEAWARD debut is a 100% all new design these exhaust systems were built to provide virtually every feature once desired in a performance marine exhaust system with reliability and longevity being the key features.
Here's the facts: There is no other performance exhaust manifold system on the market today that with as many features and advancements in construction PERIOD. Starting with a 356T Heat treated tubular style cast internal core that has been optimized to flow with the technology design and shape and design of a tubular header. By extending the runners and separating the exhaust pulses to the collector this system produces maximum power in a compact design.
More Facts: 1000 hour salt spray coating. That's right this industry has never seen these types of processes. These products are extending the naval and aerospace program products as much as ten years. Sure the finish is that of a show piece, but it's truly what you can't see that sets these systems apart. Underneath the thick non-porous billet heat treated aluminum casing lies the most exceptional foundation of corrosion protection found anywhere. A hydrogen infused zinc process is applied to each manifold. Until now salt spray testing could merely only withstand 100-150 hours of sustained exposure, Today those numbers are 1000 hours of durability.
More facts: Beauty is well beyond skin deep here as the beautifully polished stainless steel exhaust risers of the systems are manufactured from 316L Stainless Steel while inferior systems choose inferior stainless (303/304 Auto Grade) steel, Seaward systems offer nothing but the best money can buy which has been proven to be the most durable long lasting product for marine use.
Hardin Marine Innovates yet again and takes the performance marine exhaust world by storm. That's a FACT as Hardin releases the very first and ONLY DIRECT BOLT-ON (no drilling, no tapping required) for the Mercury Racing's popular 525EFI engines. Until now the industry was plagued with poor quality OEM factory tubular headers know to fail early or expensive tubular stainless replacements. Note: All 525EFI Seaward applications use a 4" intermediate tailpipe section and NOW all 600/700SCI engines will use a 4-1/2" intermediate tailpipe.
With a loud outspoken cry from the boating community for a reliable , powerful, cost effective option the folks at Hardin set out to build not only the perfect exhaust system but a system around their new SEAWARD exhaust that would easily retro-fit the OEM headers. The new Seaward System bears all of the superior quality's of their standard seaward system with the addition of a companion tailpipe allowing the connection of the factory tailpipe already in use. This is the perfect solution for engines equipped with silent choice or custom tailpipes as the user can still retain those. each kit comes complete with all necessary hardware for a complete installation.
