    Default New to jet boats

    Hello finally made a account a while back but never did a post in here. I'm 26 and a machinist from Orange County. Been going to the river for a while with friends ,mostly in blythe and a resort called twin palms . Recently purchased a place in river lagoon . Bought my boat in may and I caught the bug rite from the first time I put my new to me boat in the water.


    Bought my first boat, 1979 mach 1 with a stock 460 and a Rv cam. Alum -a impeller , berkley split bowl jet, PD droop snoot , PD diverter , Boat went 68mph . I wanted to go faster . So i decided to put a forged, full roller , 557ci with iron scj heads and ported them . Victor intake with a 950 hp holley massaged by c&j to flow 1050 . And a crane cam around 680 lift and 312 duration. Msd digital 6 ignition and billet msd dizzy . And that's were i'm at now , have had a few hang ups but everything is back and running . Have learned a lot in a short time. Looking to get into a Southwind tunnel , a daytona, or a rogers Bonneville for my next boat

    Welcome. Yeah, this is an expensive addiction! Lol.
    Personally, I like the fact that the distributor is in the correct end of your engine . I run the Fords too.
    My float is a '76 Kona Makai. I've gone through a few motors over the years in it. It currently has a 466" that I'm in the process of mellowing out from a 650 horse race gas deal to a milder pump gas motor. I just couldn't afford almost $300 a day for fuel. I'm currently collecting parts for an A headed 516" build for my rear engine Dragster.............TOO many toys! lol
    Welcome, and enjoy!
