Ok so I am a Smallblock guy and just talking to others at the river I have heard multiple times that a smallblock wont make a GW or tunnel run.
My question is why?
save the "no replacement for displacement" jive.
What is required for these boats to get up on the pocket?
If 400 hp and 400 ft.lbs comes out of a smallblock that is lighter than the bigblock, why won't it work?
I'm looking at getting a new hull soon, and I love my LS motor. If this motor pushes my heavy V-hull to almost 80, then why wouldn't it push a lighter air entrapment type hull about the same?
I'm not trying to use this motor in a 21 daytona or break any records or anything. An 18-19 GW or SWTD is what I'm looking at.
