    Default Info please..

    Ok, so I got the SBC twistie headers, I got the gaskets to mount the headers. So what else do I need for smooth jet-boating? I know I need the thru-hull covers, but what about the water/cooling system? I'm leaning towards the Banderlog water control (saving my money). Once I get the headers on, how do I want to plumb this thing? Oh, by the way, anybody recommend a GOOD header bolt? Ok, so don't be shy, give your opinions.

    If you're gonna run water, the Banderlog is a nice way to go. Otherwise you just need a Bassett T-valve and some plumbing hardware. I'm switching to ARP studs when I have to pull the headers off the next time. It's alot easier to throw the gaskets on studs and then slide the headers on them if you're doing it by yourself.
    As far as plumbing, I like to have one hose coming out of the intake that dumps out the transom, and another that has a ball valve going to a Bassett T, then you have your 2 hoses going from the T to the water injection lines on the headers.

    Cordog009, ARP studs, great idea. I found quite a few diagrams of plumbing and I'm curious which way you guys dump, thru transom or out the drivers side so it can be seen?

    This is from the Bassett site. One line in from the pump that T's into two going into the block, then two coming out the t-stat..one to a dump in the back and one to the header t-valve. I don't believe I've seen any dump out the side of the boat. Only out the back..I have just walked to the front of the engine and leaned over to check on the water dumping out the back.

    Thanks for the diagram. Thats what I'll do. On some of the v-drive video's, some of them guys had them dumping out the drivers side. I assume thats so they can see the water flow? I thought it looked kinda neat, plus you can be sure of water flow.

    Yea I don't see it hurting anything. It probably is just to make it easier to see the flow goin out of the engine.

    FYI,

    Studs with fine thread brass nuts. I have not run gaskets on my heads for over 12 maybe 15 yrs. Permatex Ultra Copper or Ultra Black it withstands multiple Nos passes throughout the season and hours of boating. Oh, the brass nuts nearly never back off.

    When I get the headers on and everything is all dialed in, can I expect any differences? Stock 1988 5.7L. Anything?
