Re: How to get more HP from a stock 8.1

A running levitator shouldn't be tampered with. Folks with them have a great durable engine that taken care of will last a very long time I had an 8.1 from a truck, they're for the most part identical. Mine was 565hp on dyno. But u had to throw $money$ at it more often than U changed the oil. It was...

Re: Finally-I'm building my boat

Hard tail.. I don't have too much experience with really cold temps but if there's water, sleet ect in the boat it should expand UP. I can't see how it would hurt anything but I have no personal experience with that.
Do people up there have boats break or bust from water??

Re: What the heck is my distributor doing??

I told my buddy to grab me 1 when he comes thru town. I just put the distributor back together and when it's idling the rpms go up and down. Not much. U can barely hear it but u can definatley see it on the tach prolly 75rpm, up then down up then down. That confirm the control module?

What the heck is my distributor doing??

With the key on engine off, the distributor it ticking. Sounds like it's sparking. About 2 times a second. How do I fix this and what is wrong?
Just took the cap off an layed it beside the distributor an turned the key on and it's definatley sparking but I don't see it

Re: Hydraulic drive system?

To add to the weight issue, u wouldn't have a robust LS or a hot small block turning a hudraulic pump.. It would be more suited with a very heavy industrial diesel

That's y heavy equipment doesn't have LSs and 383s

Re: Hydraulic drive system?

It'll work pretty easy but wouldn't have the response needed for an airboat. It would be dangerous and sluggish I think A guy a while back made a pusher fan for bowfishing that was hydraulic. But that's no airboat Your throttle wouldn't control the engine. It would control the hydraulic motor that c...

Re: Lighting Question

My boat is strictly for bowfishing. I've seen every setup u can imagine at tournaments. I have hps lights with a generator. Most airboats, except for a few of us who don't want to give up any light, run leds on airboats because u ditch the generator. No they can't put out the same light when compare...

Those little lake buggy 1s would get down with a 35 and reduction I would think. That ggkustoms 1, that guy is on here I think. It's got a 15hp motor an it looks like it gets around good. Goes like 25mph

Re: Small block or Big block?

Hey dave if u have say a mild 502" LS and a mild 502 BBC how does hp and tq compare, if they were built as close to the same as possible. Same compression, same fuel delivery ect... Or is that too vague of a question

I got a feeling in that situation the LS would come out on top.
