what would you use this for? indy car???
It makes more power than your engine does on the spray from 6500-7500, and is much lighter. So why not use it to run those slow azz 9's you like to run?

Big deal. Amazing what impresses some people. How is it, living through everyone else's achievements in stead of your own?

really? how could you tell with that fuzzy azzed dyno sheet? I didn't see any numbers below 7500. maybe you could put a sheet up that has numbers people can read. and maybe you should stuff it in your boat so that gullwing wouldn't beat your ass so hard between 11 second passes... :)hand

Well I've been down the track, quite a few times, in fact. Seems you're the only one racing a keyboard, jr.
Or your mouth.

Hass...why is it that everyone I talk to that has met you tells me what an arrogant prick you are? Seems pretty unanimous. Just wondering. Are they all lying?

I've had the same responses about you. Had a few messages about you & some places you USED to work. How is it out in TN anyway?

OK, so they're not lying. You're like this in person.
You're lying Hass. I haven't worked for someone else for almost 20yrs and it was one place, not some places.

Yeah Ok.

So anyway, why is it again that this 1200hp V-6 could be used in a pos 9 sec jet boat?

Who said it couldn't?? (I think that's what you meant)
I mean...come on, your boat probably runs 9's with about the same power, right? hil:)

Are you off your meds tonight? :indifferent0001:

Hell, I dont know. The thought never crossed my mind to try to go that slow. You'd have way more experience there than I would.:happy:

no cataracts hass. crappy video quality.

the difference is, my measly little 850hp is all in three tenths (0.30) after I hit the throttle. while this thing might make 1200 hp, it won't show up until half track and i'll already be at the other end of the course. that slow azzed engine acceleration works great at Bonneville. not so much in a jetboat on a track...

Thats were you guys are way behind in knowledge about this stuff. If you think that thing couldnt be at full power well before the starting beam, you are mistaken.

Hass...any experience is more experience than you have. You're all talk. You bolt a bunch of parts together, throw a bunch of boost at it, and suddenly you're a HP god. It's about as impressive as watching paint dry.
Put the two snail shaped crutches aside and show us your engine building super HP prowess.
I love this saying:
"My engines run good because they want to, not because they're forced to."

All you have to do is come out and prove it.

Just keep telling yourself all that if it makes you feel better.
If you guys get together & pat each others backs instead of trying to do it by yourself it wont hurt your elbow like that.
