Re: 572 bbc reliability

Personally,I would not buy a GM crate motor. I currently run an aftermarket "Felber" and like it and have had no issues. But I have a big heavy boat and turn it 5800. I could be wrong but I don't think you would get the same performance out of a small block?

Perfect! Thanks for the advice. I do want a good picture that you can see. Is it better to purchase online or from a dealer?

GPS Unit

Looking for a good gps unit that you can see during the day and shows you the actual terrain. I had an older Garmin and the screen sucked during the day. Thanks for the help.

Have a Felber 572 and was looking into fuel injection. I am looking at the fast setup that looks like a carburetor. It can handle up to 1200 hp I do not know anybody that runs one just looking for pros and cons or a better setup. The kit comes with everything you need to use and it is self learning....

They are not the only ones. Almost hit two mud boats on Orange Lake the other day. They should be required to have a flag also.

Re: seating arrangement opinions/help

I have a 15' JW hull with a 700hp BBFord, with the same seating package you want. I drive on the left side. Yes you can feel the torque roll but it is nothing to worry about. Your motor is lighter than mine so I don't think you will have an issue.

Re: Holley carburater pullover on 520 Gitzu

The psi at the carb is running 5-6 lbs. we used two different guages. This problem just started recently. I bought a brand new carb and it is doing the same thing. I just did not want to keep throwing money at it to try and fix the problem.

Holley carburater pullover on 520 Gitzu

Have a Gitzu 520 with a 600 cfm Holley carburator. At an idle it drips out of the squirters. When you put it to half throttle it pours out of the squirters. Put a new Holley on it and it does the same thing. It is using more fuel and running rich. Any advice on how to fix this? Heard about putting a...
