Bobs Transom mounted water pick-up

Does anyone know who can/will install the bobs transom mounted water pick up? Looking to have this done on a 140 Suzuki but not sure I want to tackle tapping into the lower unit myself.

I plumbed mine into the auxiliary wash port on a Tohatsu 90 as a supplement and left the factory pickups alone. Worked good. Not sure how the Suzuki 140 is set up.

And I have a brand new one in the box for sale if needed....

You didn't have any issues with the factory intakes sucking air? The intakes will be above the water line when I'm running.

I didnt. Once when I knew I would be scouting shallow I taped off the top one or two slits I cant remember. Never really needed to. It was only for short stretches that I would run that high and it was very manageable. That boat would run through high humidity.... scary shallow. I had water pressure and more important engine temp gauge. I could monitor and give it a lil more water when that engine temp started to rise. Water pressure gauge is not really valuable on those motors because they run on water volume not water pressure. Anything above zero psi and they run fine....
