Re: New Boat got motor ???

I see Mas has a 509 BB and a 416 SB they clam to have a 2 year warranty if this is true why dont the other motor companys do the same. Out of these 2 motors they seem to be close in power and price what one would give less problems?? MAS does a warranty because they build it right for an airboat. N...

Re: 10.0:1 compression adding a blower optional?

3 psi is not bad. It can add a lot more than you would think. I would have to see a dyno to know for sure. I have seen it add 50hp at the rear wheels in a car taking away the driveline it would be more.

Re: 10.0:1 compression adding a blower optional?

My blower experience is limited, but from what I've seen and done, I would be inclined to purpose build another engine for the blower if that is an option. My assessment would be very similar to Swamphunter's friend in Tampa, in that lower compression will allow for more bang for the buck so to spe...

Re: 10.0:1 compression adding a blower optional?

The engine is built right it has the right bottom end part and the compression of 10.0:1 was off the build sheet for the engine so if it was a bit lower that's a good thing but I am also only going 3 or 4 psi.

10.0:1 compression adding a blower optional?

Never ran a blower on an air boat but considering a Dyers 671 or 871 with about 4 lbs of boost. My engine is 10.0:1 compression has anyone done or is doing this? Results? Or shoul;d I just wait and build another engine for it later?

I agree to a point. An ac engine can run pretty darn good even with a lot of bad issues where a car engine will show you the issues much faster. They are two different animals for a beginner.

There's not much to know. Put oil in it, run the right fuel, and keep your mags dry. I guess I should have put it a bit more clear.

Re: Strongest brand of slick bottom

I have heard really good things about the Wetlanders longevity. I believe it is a basecoat / topcoat process instead of a single application. I have quickslick on my mudboat and it has started chipping off after less than 3 months of occasional use (mostly running ice), but IMO it is by far the sli...

Re: Alcohol motor

With Alcohol you need to run much larger jets and in order to run pump gas again you need to go back to the smaller jets it really is a bit more difficult then that but as a reference your not going back and fourth day to day unless you have two sets of plugs and a carb change each time. It runs coo...
