Re: standing rib roast

Cut the rib bones off and cook seperate. Take prime rib and inject 2 bottles of cajun Creole butter. Depending on size,Deep fry it in peanut oil for 4-5 minutes per pound. Best prime rib you will ever eat!!

Re: BBC Power Issues?

Edelbrock carbs are a great carb for the street machine that's a show peice and has great drivability. Holley or the like will make more power. Be carefull ordering a "new" holley though,they will sell you a rebuilt and alot of times there not right out of the box,and most times need parts changed.

Re: BBC Power Issues?

600 cfm is too small,you need atleast a 750. Also the edelbrock airgap is a damn good intake for a BBC on an airboat. Your best upgrade though would be changing your belt drive pulleys to a 2.3 gear,then a 750 holley or the like. That will wake it up.

Re: Felber?

Not sure what Dave recommends but when felber and I did my motor he recommended Wix racing oil filters. Reason was the oil systems on his motors where heavily modified and your common filters are not designed to handle that much oil flow causing them to come apart. Most stock motors have oil bypasse...

Re: Which motor?

Assuming your talking about a factory 8.1 496 and not a stroked 454 to 496 I'd go with the 454. There's alot more aftermarket for the 454 to upgrade it later. It wouldn't take much to make the 454 a 500hp motor. Fuel comsuption will depend more on how you drive. If I'm just cruising my 454 does good...

Re: WaterThunder Sensenich video Over 2,000 pounds of thrust

How far over pitched do they act like an S? I'm considering going from a 3 blade S to a 4 blade R. It seems at a certain rpm the S stops pulling. I give it more gas but it doesn't seem to push any harder.

Re: BBC valve cover baffles

Just to be clear,I wasn't trying to imply that your ring gap was to big, I believe it's all in your breather system. I was implying that if you have to have one on an airboat you have bigger issue's.

Re: BBC valve cover baffles

You can try plugging the front breather off and put the sheilded breather in the rear with the sheilded at the front and see if that helps it. Bigest problem I've seen with the stagered breathers,especially the little pop in dome ones like that, is on the front one as the air comes around the riggin...

They sell breathers with a deflector in them so you don't have to weld unless you want to. The stand pipe and different style breathers I run make a difference too. I run them both on the back of the motor not 1 In front and 1 back like you have. With them back there and the shields facing forward t...

Dual sheilded breathers is all I have on my BBC and I have no oil coming out of them.i suggest a leak down on your cylinders and see if your rings are good. If the rings are shot causing blow by breathers or a crank case evacuation system will not help you. Is this a new motor or and old motor with ...
