Nice tools what's the information on the press brake? Are you putting it in a hydraulic press ? How wide is it? Boats coming along nicely!

Re: I'm Building 2 Stossel Boats with High Torque Motors

I've never heard of any paint on bottom lasting on a true hunt boat. Running over myrtles and switch grass is going bust it up and wear it off as fast as you can paint it on. I know you know this. But I laugh when I go down to Kissimmee and these guys in the marsh with their fiberglass hulls you can...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

I'm with everyone else lower push point the better! You will lose very little if any thrust with the blade down in the hull. The higher the engine the worse it will roll over on the nose. You'll notice it way more on a shorter boat. I'd set the prop 10 inches off the bottom of the hull.

Re: I'm Building 2 Stossel Boats with High Torque Motors

You should consider the ecotec. My 12 foot Palm Beach boat makes the power you just mentioned above. Stander 5 foot bottom I had a 540 on the same Hull. I burn half the fuel I used to and plenty of power. I've had very little issue out of the 2.0 lhu. Ecotec has been on the boat two years now. Since...

Re: Fuel Pressure Issue

Something to check I run a aeromotive boost reference regulator and I've had to replace the diaphragm twice now in a year. Gets a pin hole in it and starts leaking fuel out the vacuum port.

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

Looking good! Before you try and crank it over I recommend turning off the DTC that you know you won't be needed. Once you start it all those ones will be stuck on there. I went through this before. Was a pain in the butt.

Mine is a lhu different but it has a o-ring on the outlet side. I don't know if a flat gaskets going to hold those kind of boost pressure. I was looking at your pictures I see the factory looks to be stainless is still on the engine. Did you pull that off to see what's in there? Also you could proba...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

Yes to close is where I had most of my problems. I had the maf 5" from the inlet of turbo. I believe it was picking up back turbulence from turbo. After tuning the maf we had the idle good. Than once it made boost it would idle like crap. So long story short the maf is 16 " from inlet and from air f...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

Also I noticed you have Teflon tape on the fuel pressure gauge be very careful what you put on the threads. I used some pipe thread dope. Ended up with a stuck fuel injector #3 cylinder full of fuel not a good thing. Just a heads up.

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

To explain a little more on the intake. Problems I had. Maf to close to airfliter strong side winds at idle would make the engine stumble bad. Maf to close to the turbo is where I had tuning issues for idle. It's like it would pick up turbulence from the turbo when you would stab the gas and let out...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

I had a problem with a short intake as Russ mentioned. Idle was crap no matter how much tuning we did to maf always had a idle issue. And everything got worse when I went to big turbo. Fuel pressure regulator in and out either side. Return out bottom. Cap vacuum port. I have mine set a 70 psi. Also ...

It's sad we pay top dollar for these blades and they are ok with that? That shank looks horrible I'd be worried it would turn in the hub. I'm no prop expert but seems like quality control is lacking.

Swap specialties is the best prices I've seen for the ecotecs I friend just got a harness from them very nice clean harness. They were a little slow but if you aren't in a hurry I'd contact them they have LSJ harness and pcm and they do in house tuning as well. https://swapspecialties.com/product/gm...

Swap specialties has stand alone harness for the ecotecs. They seem to be the best prices I've seen. Have a friend that just ordered one. He's a ways out on the build be he said they were easy to work with and they do in house tuning as well.

It goes wide open for a second than pulls the throttle back to 30% I'm getting about same rpm as you I'm around 3,500 rpm. If you figure an...
