    Ls ignition

    I’ll be using the MSD ignition box 6010 or 6014 on my ls 5.3

    The dark side is pulling me in

    With the hull that I have I’m limited on prop size and the maximum length of prop that I would be able to run would be a 78in prop being that my hull is 7ft wide at the top. I also plan on adding aluminum to deck in the side to so can walk around the boat that will transition towards the cage...

    The dark side is pulling me in

    I plan on staying with the 862 heads and swapping out the valve springs with new ones that come with a cam kit and also doing the trunnion upgrade as well

    The dark side is pulling me in

    Well I finally went and picked up my 5.3 today and I was hoping that it would have been an aluminum block motor but the iron block motor will do just fine

    The dark side is pulling me in

    In time when I’m able to do so (in a few years) I’ll have a 13-14ft Stossel/Booth hull built to swap the LS into

    The dark side is pulling me in

    It’ll take me some time to build and gather up the costly parts (gearbox,prop etc.) but in the end I believe I’ll have one heck of a boat when it’s done. One thing is for sure I can’t complain about the little 170 it has always gotten me from point A to point B and back every time and has...

    The dark side is pulling me in

    Slidin I’ll be sticking with my same hull that the 170 is on now a 12x7 welded Stossel hull which is why I’m limited to a prop diameter of 78 inches . As for what I’m gonna do with the 170 when I’m completely done with the “new build” I’m gonna have the 170 gone through and freshened back up to...

    The dark side is pulling me in

    For the price I’m getting the 5.3 for is the reason why I haven’t gotten a 6.0. And also this motor has already been disassembled checked for cracks in the block

    The dark side is pulling me in

    Kwan I’ll continue to run the little 170 on my Stossel until I have everything to completely do the build that’s including building a new motor stand cage/seat stand and it’ll take me longer to save up for the gearbox and prop than it will to build up the motor and with my boat being 7ft wide it...

    The dark side is pulling me in

    Well it has come down to the nitty gritty between staying with aircraft or going to an LS car motor. I have been weighing the odds on the two and it looks like I’m being pulled in by the dark side and also with av gas being over $6 a gallon now in my area that pump gas is looking better by the...
