    Default I got it wet this weekend!!!!



    Had a great day on the water yesterday. Given the motor, wiring, fuel system and impeller were all new I didnt have much faith but am thrilled with the outcome. No drama (other than a couple loose bolts).

    Followed 95% of Barrys breakin instructions but messed up on the plug reading so I'll do better next time (sorry Barry). Most of the boating was in the 3500 rpm range or less but I did run it to 5000 rpm for one short run (see video) and couldnt be happier with the results. I was no where near hard into the pedal!!!

    Am going to change the oil and pull the valve covers to make sure everything is good and pull my head out of my butt and do a better job plug reading next time.

    Many thanks to Barry Obler of Obnoxious Racing Engines. I appreciate your friendship and patience trying to teach me something and building me such a bitchin motor for this tub.

    Thanks guys. I'm genuinely thrilled with how well it ran. Still need to read some plugs before I lean on it but so far I couldn't be happier.

    Thanks guys. It's been a fun project.

    76Elim, The headers are stainless Borla upswept dragster headers that have been coated. Need to be polished up again but I like em.
