    Default those considering an LS motor

    Waited to post until I got some speed numbers.
    My $500 5.3L pushed my heavy old boat to 72 this weekend (thanks dan)
    So can a LS work in a jetboat? Yup. now when I get it tuned it should improve.

    Nice. Is there a build thread somewhere on this one? Nice to hear someone with MPH numbers finally. 72 with a 5.3 ain't to shabby.

    72 with a big block is not too shabby, 72 out of a small block is GREAT!
    And the new project begins!

    Not a problem. You did a great job with your ride. You're welcome to use the gps anytime and like I said my spare wedges for ride tuning etc.

    Looks way better than trying to keep the godawful looking EFI

    Nice job!
