    I recently purchased my old Canyon Flattie back and want to convert it. Does anyone have advice or detailed pics on how they did it? We built one for my old hydro but that was from scratch I wanted to look at trailers while at Parker but had too many buckets of Margaritas.. Thanks in advance! Matt

Now that I ditched the ballast and coil, what do I do with the wire? Also what does the wire do? Im running a old school original Motorola marine...

    This is a project that has been going on for the better part of several months. I read about the benefits of doing this a few years ago, and had been thinking of it since. I know you can buy a G bowl, or an American Turbine, but I like to do things myself and to save a few bucks! I am going to...

    What needs to be done to convert a Gen V bbc, from a flat tappet to a roller tappet cam set up? I know that a thrust button is necessary at the cam shaft. I know that it requires lifters with a link bar. Is there any other lifter syle that will work, besides link bar style? With stock Gen V...

    The last time I had my boat out the MSD box crapped out and left my ass stranded. I've since removed the box and I'm planing on just converting over to HEI. My question is about wiring it up. I have an el camino, and if I recall correctly when I converted that over to HEI I had to run a signal...

    I suspect that the MSD box on my boat went out (still need to further diagnose) and I was thinking that if that is the case, I'll just not replace it. If I get rid of the box, distributor and external coil and install an HEI distributor, will my engine perform any different? Is HEI as powerful...

    I have a 97 Gen. VI with throttlebody injection and would like to convert to a carb setup. I figure the distributer would need to be changed to a vaccum or mechcanical advance unit.
