    I have an old draw through twin turbo/single carb pfm kit sitting in my garage. The rajay turbos are trashed, and as far as I have seen they are nearly impossible to find and expensive for how out of date they are. Is there any way to use newer turbos without a BOV or waste gate? Like a turbo...

    So I am well on the road to some proper horse power with my 29 Scarab from the single engine twin turbo Mercruiser BBC 502 but in my pursuit I have very quickly overshot the capabilities of my Bravo One and need to make a plan to either rebuild the drive or replace it for something beefier.

    I have to replace my intake manifold gaskets because they're leaking. While I'm in there, I'm considering replacing the intake manifold.

    Hello all, I am rebuilding a '77 20' Cheetah w/ BBF 460 and Berkeley 12JC pump. I am building a 475-500 hp, 500ish lb./ft torque BBF power plant and currently painting and re-rigging the boat. I have gotten to the point of wanting to begin addressing the pump. I pulled the complete pump from...

    I have a Howard bullet open bow and am going to upgrade the stereo in about a week or so. My main question is the subs. I plan on have an enclosure built under the rear bench seat and installing two alpine type R subs. Other than loosing storage what are some cons in going this route??

    Has anyone used (just) components to upgrade their XR upper/lower, like the Platinum components from Teague or components from IMCO or from the Bravo Shop or maybe someone else, with any success? I'm wondering if using these types of stronger components (shafts, bearings, gears, carriers, etc)...
