Re: 6 blade warp drive on a 0320 150 hp

I ran a Power Shift 66" Cypress for many years, switched to a 70" Whirlwind Whisper Tip and made a pretty good difference, quieter and better push. Good luck with yer paddlers :)

Re: Electronic gas pedal for 5.3 ls

I'll try to get you a pic but in the meantime, I mounted the pedal upside down under the floorboard, connected it to a traditional airboat pedal with linkage w/ heim joints at each end. Allows for better long throw so as not to be overly reactive between idle and wide open. http://southernairboat.co...

It's Aliveeeeee! Swamp Life 2.0 Ecotec LTG

So Chuck finished up the wiring and after waiting another couple weeks for a Trifecta tune that never came through (and would have been locked where I could not make adjustments), (and would've had to wait for him for who knows how long to fine tune), I made the decision to bring her home and wait f...

Re: Advice on building rigging for new boat

Wait, Wait, Wait! I had to wait 5 months for my gearbox before I could even start my engine stand, excruciating to say the least. It's the only way to be certain you set it up correctly and as previously stated, will most likely save you a lot of double labor/wasted material.

What is your tongue weight like? The axle looks set back pretty far. I would look into a drop axle as well, you can choose from different drop distances..........

2014 2.0 turbo Ecotec stand alone tune

Does anyone have any info re: stand alone tune technicians? Chuck has been waiting nearly 3 months for Trifecta/WOT. This is so frustrating in this era of technology. Alpha Fab is finally supporting this platform but not at an affordable price, $2200 for the ECM and harness, they won't simply provid...

Re: EGT Probe 540 Lycoming.

I'm more a fan of the CHT's, Get a dual gauge and read off of your two center cylinders (as they are the hottest). I'm a fan of these because I believe it is the most accurate ( I may be wrong) method of preserving your cylinders/valve seats.

Info on Can-Bus Gauge clusters

I'm looking for feedback from anyone with can-bus gauge experience. So far Speed Hut seems to be the most reasonably priced and popular, however; upon calling them they advised they do not offer a waterproof marine unit. I have a call in to Nomad to see about Faria. I found a nice tachometer through...

Re: Info for Ecotec DIY'ers

Great information, thanks for posting. As far as the stock fuel tank goes are you going to use it or do you only need it for the fuel pump? Also I assume you're not going to run a cat? How does not running a cat effect the engine noise? I plan on it, I want to run it just the way it came out of the...
