    Talking turbo vs regular mill

    it seems that this turbo crap has really gone crazy around here.

    there are threads about how great they are and how much power they make
    on and on and on with turbo stuff.

    i think it is wonderful the power they seem to make and how they are just the cats meow.

    but damn they sound like SHIT.the motor looks even worse in a boat at least in a car you can cover the thing up.

    I for one like to make some damn noise, have a idle that just scares the shit out of somebody and makes heads turn.that may not win races but then again i wont look like a homo running around

    the moral to this is how come some of the baddest jets out there on the racing circuit dont use the TURBO stuff if they are so great???
    can somebody answer this?

    is it b/c they are not consistent?

    or will the rules not let boats with these alien looking motors in to race

    GOOD MORNING EVERYONETravis

    You don't sound like a good candidate for a turbo project anyways. You didn't even spell TURBO right.

    You better just bolt on a blower, zoomies, and an Enderle injector.
    Lots of noise, look cool, Etc.

    we don't mind being poked at, come summertime they'll point and laugh, then they'll point again while they're sayin "whollllly ****kkkkkk"

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    You won't have to worry about looking @ the motor because all you'll be doing is trying to steer through the wake that turbo boat is making.

    Speaking of poking fun,sorry i couldn't help myself

    Well I guess if making noise & looking cool is the priority, Turbo's are not for you.........

    Appears the turbo guys have there priorities on going fast.

    Now this is coming from a guy who is running a blower & injector, but it was simple & affordable, makes a shehite load of power & looks badass.......

    Carry on

    all of this maybe true but sooner or later you will have to stop and let everyone look at(well in the turbo holders words wholly **** what was that)that gay pile that is in the back of the boat,then with ease they will go man that thing really sucks and looks funny i dont care how fast it goes


    oh and tom as far i as know your not a turbo man yetmaybe building or planning on building 1 but will it last?

    you can still come back from the darkside

    you guys have a great weekend, im outta here going to Oklahoma to visit,play Hillbilly and drink.

    When I'm at the lake my boat always draws a croud. They stand around & ask all kinds of ?'s . And when they are walking off talking , they're always telling each other that that thing is just bad azz, they hardly notice the regular "lowd" boats that are there. usually wont even walk down the beach to look at one.
    This is part of the reason that I'm going to take a while to change over to blow through and the larger turbos. I dont mind the advantages of it but I want it to look the part also. Not look like a kids science project. And my system as it is right now looks good , sounds good and performs well. I wont change permanently till the blowthrough deal proves the same , then I'll get rid of my current setup.
    We also drive our stuff, if you look at this vid from the Eddie Hill get together we went to , you'll see several other boats in the water that never left the bank. Eddie and Me were the only ones that burned any fuel. To bad I was out of NOS by the time I got to take'em for a ride. But we still ran 104-105.
    Good times

    Nothing is more awesome than a turbo big block. (except a turbine)

    Blower parasitic loss has come way down in recent years with the advent of the whipple - but its still a long way away from the adiabatic efficiency of a turbo when both are producing their rated boost.

    Turbos are hard to tune relatively speaking and the exhaust plumbing is expensive and likely custom on every rig.

    Like all things you can solve the problem with money.
