Re: GO480 SIRIUS BLADES??

My opinion a 3-blade Sirius is to much for a GO... A 2 blade 78" would probably work good.

Re: Duraskin on R series delaminating?

A few months ago I sent my 3 blade R series back to get Duraskinned, after literally 2 or 3 trips on these blades I noticed on 2 of the 3 blades had areas of no duraskin and it looks like it took some of the carbon fiber with it when it went. Its in the "meat" of the blade, NOT on the leading edge,...

Thanks for all the help. Farmboy, I heard you are the person to talk to about these motors? I have the complete motor with supercharger, gear box and fuel injection. I have been getting mixed opinions about the fuel injections on whether to keep it or go carb? Don't know anything about these motors...

Re: Gauge package suggestions

I'm running a Tach,oil psi,oil temp,volt and a boost/vac gauge. I think that covers ya in my opinion... As far as CHT I would just get a lazer heat gun and check with that. And the AF guage I would use it to tune your carb or injection then I would take it off. I don't think that's something that yo...

Gauge must be broke... :scratch:

Keep it at 25 otherwise there are too many factors that may damage engine if not careful and you have to know just what to do to get more advance in it correctly

Re: 480 mag timing

how advanced past 25 degrees can you go. mine was set to open at about 6-8 degrees past the 25 pointer. I've never got a answer for that question from anybody. I will say my motor was a pig at 25 degrees. We bumped it up to 27 and it brought it to life and help smooth it up. I don't think I'd go an...
