  1. GN7 On the Dyno
    I was planning on building a class legal BBC engine for my GN boat. I haven't fully committed on weather I'm going to go race gas or E-85. It will be supercharged(10-71) and either carbureted or injected. Jury is still out on that part. My main question is regarding the blower set up. Can you...
  2. GN7 On the Dyno
    Seriously thinking about going with a Hat and dropping the carbs . My question is stay w/ e85 injected or just go alky ?

    Need to know what needs to be done to an aluminum fuel tank when running alky? I heard anodizing is the answer...? I will be running the boat on weekends, does the fuel need to be drained or can it set for the 5 -7 days in an alunimun tank?
