I'd love to join you but I've got to change and flush my oil pan. I had the header water on full and got water in the oil. Also a water leak around my steering cable. I've been down with a cold so I haven't gotten around to the fixes. Hope you have fun.

looks like if i go it might be a little later:)sphss

How experianced are you with tuning turbo motors??? im no novice mechanic i know my way around an engine pretty well, just inexperianced with that subject.

Im really thinking about building a 468 turbo motor.. Just unfamiliar with turbos.. After seeing that sb chevy turbo jetboat, it got my mind thinkin.. That boat got my attention real fast.. id really like to be in the 80+mph range to be happy.

i was gonna get them early next week but i just found a crack in the bottom of my hull. i may just do a super fast repair on the trailer for a month of testing if i think i can do it half right . it doesnt go though its at a double layer area under the stringer. how you doing?

i am pretty good i guess :p . my boat now goes a whopping 77.9 max speed without the turbos. i think the overlap in the cam & 8.5 to 1 is really sucking the h.p down. i am over 20mph slower:)st

im at 70 mph with a 468 olds.. 10:1 comp motor is nothin special.. Im really suprised at what i got out of it though.

We should hookup sometime and shoot the shit, interested in peekin at another turbo v8.. I need a winter project lol..

8.5:1 huh i dont think i woulda went that low, but then again you can run a bit more boost. How is it outa the hole on boost?

Have you got room to pull the motor and flip the boat over? If that crack is right under a stringer, I don't know how you can reinforce the interior.

You must live by bob on south watt and florin road and close to RAH Electrical? Bob is the guy with about 7 v drives in his front of his property.
