Re: Carb ls

I am interested in the logic behind the 450 CFM recommendation for this application? It is true a 500 Holley (and to a lesser extent, the 350) 2 bbls are perceived as the standard go to cabs for automotive direct drives. IMO, this largely because they are readily available, comparatively inexpensiv...

Re: Carb ls

How many RPM's do you plan to turn? I doubt I would use less than a 650 cfm. I doubt you would make such a call if you were more familiar with the subject matter. You apparently don't realize that DD is shorthand notation for Direct Drive and/or You are unaware that direct drive props will typicall...

Re: Budget build with torn poly won’t run dry?

Yes, I expect that it should. Have a neighbor that had a near stock 355/2.12/78Falcon 2blade on a 14' Diamondback that would run dry with a couple people. While you consider your boat a little heavy, I doubt it weighs what his did with the grass rake, SS rigging and full cage. The more debatable que...

Re: Carbed 6.0 LS fuel pump

First of all, don't overlook the good advice you have already been given. If your current pump is 14 psi capable and is in fact producing 11-12 psi, replacing that pump first, most likely will not address your problem. You didn't say if you are or are not running a fuel pressure regulator with that ...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

. . . i would think you would loose a lot of thrust While it may look that way at a glance, the fact is that the air moves down the blade toward the hub before it proceeds aft to generate the thrust you are looking to generate. Even a lowly Direct Drive that can only turn a 72" prop does not loose ...
