    Default My toy for everyone to see ..But it is WINTER NOW &*&()*&*&

    I cant run it anymore this year due to weather, so I thought I could run it on the WWW..... lol

    Thought I would post a few pics of the jet as they are a dying novelty here in Indiana, well central anyway, but I have to thank my father for getting me into them when I was just a lil tyke, LOVE EM,,,,,,he had over7 jets while growing up.

    It has a 468 BBC balanced, roller set up, 12:1 compression, and an American Turbine Pump......

    Any and all comments are welcome

    Beautiful boat! That 468, especially with 12:1 compression, is being choked by the inlet and outlet that are bolted on. Correct me if I am wrong, but a jet doesn't have much use for a dual-plane intake? Or a Quadrajet for that matter. A nice single-plane with a larger Holley or Demon would definitely up the ante. Similarly, rip those logs off of the exhaust and put some real headers on there.

    Normally, I wouldn't even have anything to comment on with such a nice boat. And, I am not disrespecting the boat at all. I just see tremendous potential that is untapped. That motor is trying to pull more and push more air and fuel than that intake/exhaust setup can respectfully offer.
