Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LHU SWAP

The sallow draft allows me to do a lot of idling. Drafting a foot of water requires getting on the skinny pedal every 10 yards to crawl over a log or stump.

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LHU SWAP

I am actively looking for a motor now. After talking to Russ I have opened up my search to include the LTG. So there may be a change in the title of this thread after I purchase my motor.

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LHU SWAP

With the current 100 hp and 2.588 reduction drive there is nearly 0 torque roll. Remarkably stable. I do plan to keep it at stock power levels as I hope I have no desire for more push with the boat as light as it is. Thanks for the info on ATK. The salesman I spoke to said they had more than 200 of ...

Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LHU SWAP

Greatly appreciated Russ I will take you up on your offer. I just found a company selling what is supposed to be new zero mile GM LNF nearly complete for $2030 to your door. Looks like it’s minus starter, alternator but other wise pretty complete. ATK High Performance Engines. I have never heard of ...

Re: Ecotec gearbox adapter

Thanks for the info. Looks like the LTG does not have the same bellhousing bolt pattern as the Rest. I read in another thread that even though retired, Chuck may be available by phone. If we could run his number down he may be able to put us in contact with the person that was making the adapter for...

Re: Ecotec gearbox adapter

I am in the planning stage of building an ecotec package and can't find a gearbox that will bolt up or an adapter manufacturer. If you find something please post. Ballistic says an ecotec box is "coming soon" on their web site but I have made 4 phone calls without an answer or return call Ox said th...

Re: New airboater

Plans are to get it running then see if it will do what I want it too..... run the cypress swamp with two people without hanging up. If it won’t I will make a power train change....i’ll mostly be running thick vegetation in some water, not lots of dry ground to run where I am....but the thick grass ...

Just wanted to introduce myself as I have made a trade and now own an airboat and will need lots of advise and some help for sure. My name is Eddie an...
