Re: Ecotec I4 engine identification

GM has a standalone harness for one of the Ecotec Motors I can't recall which one. Maybe Chuck can at least point you to his source of motors.

Re: Ecotec I4 engine identification

Idk how to tell but the 2.0 is turbo or supercharged from the factory. 2.4 is naturally aspirated. Most likely it is a 2.4 if no forced induction on it

Re: 2.0L DOHC Duratec Engine for Airboat

Props can only spend a 3000 RPM so you would either need a reduction unit or limit rpm and hp/tq potential with the correct prop size

Re: Total Chaos used boat purchase info wanted

San. Thanks for the info. I think you are too smart for most of us. I dont have much use for a laser or strobe reader. Just something to put in a toolbox but maybe I could use it on my small equipment to see if I am getting the most rpm/power. I would like a quality one and would spend maybe $50. I ...

Re: CAUSE OF RECENT TOUR BOAT ACCIDENT

My bro in law had a new steering cable fail when out 1.5 year ago. The sleeve at the rudders came apart. We had to stop a few times to fix coming in. That was after he built the boat and on the first launch figured out he had built the steering backwards. I think he just connected it wrong at the ru...

Re: Ride time

Two weeks ago 2A was very nice riding. High water made it very easy to go have fun off trail. Nice accessible camps and you could even take them all the way to the Markham park levee. Would have been cool to take a wave runner to a camp. Lol. Use Google maps on your phone if you don't know the area....

I saw 2 out at the test and tune early in the day. I assume 1 was Gladesman and I did see a lady/girl 4 boats down launch one. Long day so all I can say is it was a girl on a floating boat.

Re: boat wont get up on plane... super slow

I have to wonder how long they have been using the current setup. Did they just throw what was laying around together? Maybe the thought was slower is safer because of the "untrained" workers that would be driving it.

Re: Total Chaos used boat purchase info wanted

42 mph turning only 1900 WOT is not right. Can you verify your tach? I didnt think of that. We are riding tomorrow, south side of The Alley. I will check gps as we are cruising as before I had it in storage and checked when stopped. Tach seems to work fine but I will ask around for a portable one. ...
