Here is a new and hopefully fun thread to check out. Howard has laid up another hot 2008 28 Sportdeck. This thing looks fast just sitting there. The owner has opted to run a custom made TPI W305 efi motor. It will be de-tuned to a conservative level UNDER 1000 hp. This particular motor might become part of the TPI engine line up He Also is running the all Billet Max Machine Worx drive with a 1.35GR.
As pics are available, I am sure they will be posted. This boat will be out there running this Summer, so look out
I think its going to fit underneath. Either way, it will not need a scoop, maybe a small notch inside the hatch itself. The boat can definately handle the motor. They are pretty comfortable at any speed. Although the motor will be capable of quite a bit of power, it will be set up as what I would consider a conservative package. It may be a big supercharger, but the motor itself is no different than the 848, so I really am anxious to see how the combination works together with the Sportdeck. It's definately going to be nice, and yes, it should in theory be the fastest Sportdeck to date, if the cold air stay's around when we finally run it as a comparison
i noticed in a pic above that there is a wix filter on one motor and an orange fram or baldwin on the other...
any preferences on these motors??
what model or p/n is the wix??? just can't read it on the pics
I run both of them. The fram HP6A and the Wix racing 51222R. They are for the same application. I have cut open each one and inspected them, and I never had a problem with either. Some of my Mid-West and East Coast customers request the Wix 51222R because they are carried everywhere over there through Car Quest and Napa. Just like anything else, everyone has their opinion of each, I am sure. But they have both been good to me
