    Default Starting all over!

    Well, here I am at square 1 starting all over! Last run of last season finely got it running it's azz off and droped a valve! And as you all know had to built a new motor. Did an upgrade on motor and pump, changed the impelor going to give a AT HH a try! So it's back to the grind stone till I work out the kinks!
    Motor is in and all new plumbimg done,wiring finished with a few added extras! pump is back and ready to install tonight! If all goes well I will be ready to hit the water Sat. or Sun. but the weather is not working with me!
    Build is a 496 Pro Comp heads 10.1 comp Chris Straub cam profile dominator intake and Chuck Nuytton 850 carb. Produced 700 HP,700 Ftq ought to be fun ride! I was not looking for a race rocket but a sleeper creeper! Scott Seastrum built pump and as I said a few extras!
    I hope everyone has a good boating season and good luck with their projects! WT [IMG][/IMG] [IMG][/IMG]

    you already got it dyno'd coby?

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

    So how was the acceleration with the new engine? Did you get a MPH out of her yet?

    Default not to bad!

    Well, I am pulling the pump back apart and changing the impellor from an HH A to a HH B to see if I can get the RPMs up! The HH A is a biting BITCH over the old impellor! The 496 has no problems moving this boat from point a to b in a flash! We will later install a inducer if the cavitation problems persist!
    As I said in starting this thread "Starting All Over" as always, one thing leads to another. THIS BOAT IS GOING TO WORK!!! We will try a few new tricks to see if anything helps or hurts and post it up! Later! WT

    Question? Why are you adding an inducer if "she is a biting bitch"? What were you spinning the HH "A" to and what should the expectations of the HH "B" turn in comparison?

    Im non induced and My turd leaves pretty hard as she sits.
