Re: The used LS3 option.....

If I am thinking correctly, you need only have two new motor mounts built for the front of the motor....If the wiring has you worried then go buy the intake and the msd box for around 630 or so and then run a carb on it....that is plug and play....then all you have to worry about is plumbing, which ...

Re: Can`t Run Dry .....is it a lightweight ? or a Heavyweigh

Its very simple and Ill put it order. Bottom, weight and a prop that will push at 3000 rpms. Think Bubba nailed it for you hasbeen. I would also agree 100% and I would also add that you might consider starting at dead level with the engine and then raise the back UP 1 washer at a time til you hit t...

Re: Poly Thickness

Diamondback is doing the work for me. I went with the 3/8. The extra weight is only going to affect me when fully loaded. Interesting thing is that the specific gravity of UHMW is .94, which means it will actually add a slight amount of buoyancy. Still have to accelerate it though. Sent from my SPH...

It just depends on how you run the boat...I think mine is 3/8 and I have had it a little over a year, and you can sling a cat thru it in the back...so it really depends on your riding...
