Re: 5250 vs 5,000

I personally think that it makes no sense for the average guy with a 2/1 or 2.37/1 to go over the 5,250 number. I was happy running my setup there and would sometimes choke it down to 4,900 if I was just going to be cruising for the weekend. Just change it up when you some time and see if it's worth...

Re: 350 sbc rebuild or build for more?

I'd say it's a good excuse as ever to go ahead and put some performance parts in your rebuild.

Just do what you feel comfortable with cash wise.

Little things like a cam swap and cylinder head work can make quite a difference for not a lot of coin.

It's all up to you.

Re: 4.3 DD Prop

Also, you may want to check and make sure that the engine is not a counter rotation setup. I've heard that it is sometimes found to be the case at least in dual engine boats where one engine spins clockwise and the other goes counterclockwise (not familiar with the particular one that was mentioned)...

Re: LS repower!! Need help

...I found a iron 6.0 cheap with low miles but it is a 2014 vct does that matter? From my research and personal experience, you do not want an engine that turns some of the cylinders off via VVT. I had a 5.3 in my GMC Envoy XL and it blew the top end and then the bottom end after the top was fixed....

Re: DD LQ4 6.0

I'd let her eat and find out how well she runs. 8) Shouldn't be any worse than the 350 DD. I would use the truck intake manifold. Might also make sense to do a cam change to get a little more torque below 3,000 RPMs. X2 They are good engines. I'm happy with my stock one but I've got a gearbox to su...

Re: 11/7 gore 350 or 4.3

Probably not much difference in weight between the two so I'd say you are better off with the 350 since it will make more power than the 6 cylinder.

unless of course you went with an ecotec package which might come in around same weight as a 540 and possibly more thrust on pump gas.

Re: Sacrilege?

I think it would be cool to see a DD LS on the Don Davis and fitting for an AC to be on the Thurman.

Either way - I'm sure we are in for a bunch of stories regarding the builds and change ups lol

I believe he is referring to the "Vinyl Wraps" that you can commonly see on high end vehicles and sport fishing boats now-a-days.
