The 1190 is on my wish list but I'll have to wait for a used one in a few years. Can't justify the cost now. Plus I'm skeptical that the 1190 won't have the nagging little annoyances that the 990 did.

Well, I look at it as a better of two solutions. One works fine for me without having some janky shit rigged up. The other works, but not as it is supposed to, and has to be "customized" into place.

Mine let fuel leak thru while sitting, and would flood the engine.
