    I don't think this "On the Dyno" deal is appropriate. Guess it could stay and then another column for engine building questions or a place where we can put links to sights where there is more info about certain engine subjects or specs.

    Ok....what do you guys think?

    I agree Bob, I think 2 subjects like Internal Marine Performance and External Marine Performance. This would give the sight 2 areas for boaters to ask questions: Those who are going in deep on the engine and those who want some good "bolt ons for the bucks". That's my 2 cents.

    Yeah. I get this feeling people are blowing over this "dyno deal" cause they don't have a dyno sheet or something. LOL. Maybe it is just me.

    We had some sticky stuff..some links....some info many of us used for reference at the other place. Kinda miss that.

    Bob,
    I agree some of that stuff that you and Info and others had provided was GOOD info for the masses.

    Just for the record I think I'm the only one who has posted any dyno sheet's.

    I'm not a racer so I have nothing to hide, but I know there are some more guy's out there with some dyno info. Post up guy's.

    I agree, I think there should be a dyno thread but it's worthless if no one post's number's. I have two more BB Ford sheet's I can post plus my 650 HP 409" sm blk Ford ( at 6,500 rpm's pump gas) and my 506 HP 351 Ford, but I didn't want to hog the site and the sm blks aren't boat engine's.

    I think the engine build stuff and dyno sheet's should have their own area.

    I agree Sleeper, as you and Danherc have posted about you build and then the power. This info is perfect for a dyno section. I feel 1 or 2 new sub topics under Tech is also needed.

    Cool

    I thought the category title, "On the Dyno," says it all...at least I assumed this was a place to post proven dyno'd combos. If that's the case, then perhaps a moderator is not doing his job relocating the off-topic threads...or perhaps this category is not at all what I believe it to be and therefore might be better suited with a different name.

    I like the idea of posting dyno combos...not so much for bragging rights but rather to display proven combos that may assist others that are pre-planning their next combo. Such info can save a lot of people from going out and buying the "biggest and baddest" and unwittingly ending up with a dog-slow combination.

    Sounds like we need two seperate categories: "On the Dyno" AND "Gear Heads."

    Nothing wrong with a dyno thread. But it's a catch all cause nowhere else to put stuff.
    Besides....I got no dyno sheets.

    I figure we will get some input...then Rexone will jump in here and straighten us out or come up with a better idea.

    Ha! The partners I work with who build themselves sick engines have never used a dyno or flow bench...they use a stopwatch or the traps at the end of the racetrack, period. Old school, I guess. (Not saying that you practice the same way, Fiat, just an "semi-off topic" reply). This is actually a bit ironic if you think about it...afterall, at this day and age for most of us it's all about getting into the zero's without breaking out...so who needs a dyno, and yet Billy and Van run nitromethane/balls out/best man wins engines...and they don't dyno tune their engines. HUH?

    ps: and suddenly, with this post, it occurred to me that we also need a Bench Racers category.

    Mo blower or tip the can. She will hit the number. Or the salvagable pieces will in the next block.

    Old school still works Lakes. LOL. I'm building a match racer to run against your hydro....in the 8 second class.
    And of course...It's a chivy.

    Gear Heads and Bench Racers section would be great.

    The nitro engines are what; blown, unblown how much power? As you know some engine's just aren't practical to dyno or it is not possable to dyno them?

    The best thing about the dyno is not so much the power you are making, it doesn't matter if it's a 550 HP BBC or a 900 HP BBF it's just when it get's in the boat you know it run's.

    But yes: hose end's and carb selection info should be elsewhere. The dyno thread is a good place for engine build's and head flow info.

    Now look here...this thread is coming around to being under the right topic after all. Let's discuss pros and cons of dyno testing.

    Moderators can't clean up a site if there's no where to take out the garbage. (Not garbage, but you know what I meant)
    I think the Gearheads topic was a good one. Bench racers was just a bunch of social BS. I agree some changes are in order. Got to give these guys their due, though...this site seems to be working pretty dern good right out of the gate. Good Job PB guys.
