    Question for those that raced this past weekend; Honestly, Did this reduced distance change the boats a true 5 tenths or does it need to be more like 6-7 tenths ? Or did anyone see more of a performance loss than 7 tenths of a second? Thank you, Joe

  7. 489 to 555/565, use existing parts or start from scratch?

    GN7 On the Dyno
    I'm sure some of you have done this before so I figured I'd ask and see what your opinions are. I currently have a pump gas 489 I built about 4 years ago when my budget was really tight and just couldn't justify swinging the Aftermarket big bore block. However the desire for more performance...

    I would like to start learning the things I need to know about my jet boat. I know it has a Ford 460 engine. it is running a tunnel ram with 1 Holly 800 carb. I was told the lower end was stock, but that the cam was replaced with a wilder one when the fella rebuilt the engine, and that the...

    I have a stock 1994 454 carb motor. it is almost impossible to start while on the water. once it is running, it runs good. if I shut it down it will start right up. if I let it sit for more than 15 minutes I have to hold the throttle wide open till it fires. it acts like its flooded. it's done...
