And it will feel heavy and sluggish in the rear of the boat unlike and aircaft motor which will have a sp...

Re: Rigging, how far forward can I go?

It it were me I would not move it any farther forward. I would just add a platform for there feet flush with the deck, it will give you usable space. And if I need the weight farther forward I would look into moving my tank. As SH45 said adding a longer adapter may add a little push but it will also...

Re: Holley Dominator Questions

When we used the terminator system on a buddies boat we had to add the senders and hook up oil, Water temp (classic gauges makes a 12mm coolant sensor that will screw in the back of the passenger side head) .

No wires off the ECM provided for these gauges.

Re: Turbo LS vs 496

If i was going LS forced induction I would look into the superchaged LS over a turbo personally, they run well and has a nice torque curve. They also seem to hold up well even with a stock bottom end. Also an aluminum LS is much lighter than any BBC even with aluminum heads 150 lbs or better. But al...

Now it could have a ride like a juiced up Eldorado plenty of HP and torque but overall still has a heavy feel to the rear . Guy I worked for had a 600 plus hp BBC with a...
