    Yes i have seen a real improvment in lift and trim speeds. yet this was done when the system was filled with ATF. i have in the last two seasons started using the meyers m-1. that made a big difference, less water contamination and faster(since it is thinner then atf). glade i made the switch, just havt seen a reason to take the heater hose off.
