Re: Wood vs Warp drive

Re: 480 mag timing

yes the points should just start to open at 25 degrees......make sure when you set the engine for timing you do so in the direction of rotation so as to eliminate all gear lash.....I thought the timing pointer for the gso was in the top of the gear box...if the gear box has been removed you can tim...

Re: Anyone running a Whirlwind SW prop

Re: What makes a purpose built Airboat motor?

We disagree Bruce, hypereutectic pistons will shatter in a detonation scenario. FACT I believe it would far more accurate to say that hypereutectic pistons can shatter when exposed to excessive detonation. It could likely be stated that a specific given hypereutectic piston will succumb to excessiv...

Re: What makes a purpose built Airboat motor?

We disagree Bruce, hypereutectic pistons will shatter in a detonation scenario. FACT If you run a mild factory tune you are probably gonna get away with it running a quality fuel. Just know that the pistons are your weak spot and when the ECM gets a flawed message from the sensor your good luck may...

Re: What makes a purpose built Airboat motor?

What ever you buy, make it a torque motor. Not a horse power motor. If you buy a 600 HP @ 6500 rpm engine you will be lucky to get 530 at 5400. The LS376/480 is a perfect crate engine for an airboat. Chuck Its a nice engine for sure i run the 376/430 which is just a different tune and less cam got ...

Re: What makes a purpose built Airboat motor?

Great point FOOL ! I just dont want to see some hard working guy with a family throw their coins in the shizter. If your going to run an LS3 if you do nothing else put in forged pistons. pistons never been an issue in the ls3 we tried an ls2 when the boat was new and it broke a piston after 4 or 50...

Re: What makes a purpose built Airboat motor?

Forged pistons, forged rods, fuel map optimized for the application. As mentioned by swamphunter45, hypereutectic pistons will shatter under detonation. The powdered metal rods used in most of the LS3s are pretty tough but in the long run, forged will serve you better. I went the crate motor route ...

the price tag is the difference in the airboat world all that forged nonsense is just that unless you're racing (high rpms or a power adder) i dont see any reason to go with all that extra crap gm spent a lot in r and d to put these packages together
