    I was with a guy that blew the hat and PSI blower off his GN boat yesterday. Another guy with the group (also with an injected PSI) on a Beezer having lots of trouble getting it to run right. In fact the last time we all went out a couple weeks ago was having troubles that day as well.

    Sorry to hear of the breakage.

    I believe I'll stick with my carbs and TR. It might not be as fast (certainly not as impressive), but it sure is reliable.

    Not really. Opened very late. Looks like he manually opened it. It should have opened as soon as you saw the roostertail go away. Don't go by the engine noise due to the fact that it takes a little time for the sound to get there.

    Bill was the one with tuning issues. Matt Brown was the guy who's hat and blower came off. Are you going carbs or injected?

    Are you going to be able to get those valve covers off there? Looks pretty tight clearance-wise.

    Sounded not quite right from the initial hit, the surging is quite evident very early in the run, waay before the final pop. Was he able to salvage the weekend, or was he done for the event?

    Ex PSI Canyon Matt? I need to remove them Gill headers if I want to get under the covers. Lightnings are in the works but I want to see how this economy is fairing before I really pull the trigger.

    I'm no expert. But to see one work was interesting. I didn't know they were automatic. Nice rail by the way.
