Re: 6.2 ls engine options

This is my 19.5x8 w/33” sides. Big cab. 540 bbc that I only turn 4800. It’s 600/650 at that rpm. Dunno what else to say... 500hp wouldn’t be great but I don’t believe you need 700. I sure wouldn’t go ls though...

Re: 6.2 ls engine options

My boat is 19.5x8 with an enclosed cab. I run a big block 540 with 600hp/650ftlbs at 4800 where I turn my motor. My boat runs ground surprisingly well. Set up has a lot to do with your running. This boat runs ground better than my old 18x8. I don’t buy into the 1lb per hp guys will try and say you n...

Hull size

Considering a new hull and am trying to decide between 18x8 and 20x8. I have an 18 currently with a rake and it runs ground well. I would like a little more room. Would I be giving anything up by adding 24” to the hull? What’s your opinion?

Re: Whites Performance Chevy 540 BBC

I suppose they could be fake arp bolts, they do say arp, that could be faked too I guess. You won’t see me spinning over 5000! And at 5000 it is 604hp.

Whirlwind sw vs sensenich S

Anybody have a comparison on how the whirlwind SW compares to the sensenich S blade. Might need to add a blade and would consider the change considering the S seems to be low on the production priority list anymore.

From what I’ve heard I have to assume there is no warranty. I have mine on the boat and running... I guess I should feel lucky? Image

Unfortunately they’re all damaged but yes, one is far worse than the rest. The one with a hole in it.

Destroyed my prop

I had a prop strike this weekend. First thing is to see about repair. I was running a 3 blade sensenich S 81” with a 2.3 belt at 1.75 mark (15.5 degrees) with a 580 hp 540 big block built for 88 octane. So I do not know if they make the S blade anymore, I don’t know if a repair is possible. I’m curi...

Re: Whites Performance Chevy 540 BBC

Well, I’ve heard some things in my research and reviews about some problems. The problems with the engines I’ve heard of have seemed fairly minor. None have Grenaded that I’ve heard of. Mine is in route, too late to back out now so, we will see.

Re: Whites Performance Chevy 540 BBC

I am told that there are a handful of actual manufacturers making lifters in the United States. Morrel, Johnson, Eaton and Melling are names that I recall. The dog bone style retro roller lifters sold by CompCams and Howards appear to resemble Morrel. I have been in the Branch engine shop when deli...
