    Here is my Gator Jet Bass Boat engine compartment. Vortec 350, four M-30 batteries, Stealth on the fly charger, etc. The two large storage bins are removed so you can see the engine & battery areas. The bilge area needs cleaning! I made the pics large so you can look around.

    Is that an all aluminum LS3 motor? If so, can you please let me know the following:
    • How did you set up the fuel return to the tank
    • How did you set up the O2 sensor on your exhaust or are you doing away with O2 sensor all-together
    • Are you running a T-Stat and if not, how are you regulating the water temp since these engines (I'd assume) like to run under constant temp rather than it being fluctuated like on a normal jet application
    • How does it perform for a jet application, i.e., max speed, hole shot, etc.
    Thanx in advance...
