When I put new poly on it force the nose down. As hull bowed up it forced poly lip at transom. I put a (3) hull jacks i...

Re: Reputable tilt trailer manufacturers

I got a trailer from Chris over year ago. Wanted a few thing different, he built me exactly what I asked for and there has no issue at all.

Re: 3 blade 72" H

To me H blades are like an old school 2 stroke dirt bike. Fast and load but have a narrow power band at the top. I ran one on a 14' Aluminum hull with a caddy, Always felt prop was slipping unless you where into the throttle. Was set at almost 3, but the snap was great. Would make your ears bleed se...

Re: Need more power, not sure which route to take

There is a facebook page LSX parts for sale. There a number of stock GM supercharger on there for sale and you would want a supercharger cam. If I didn't do the supercharger then it would be Cam, springs, pushrods, Injectors and a Tune. Maybe add the throttle body and Fast LSXRT intake. Not sure if ...

Re: Need more power, not sure which route to take

Do a little research on cams, to make decent power in an ls you do not need a high lift cam. GMPP offers to cams Hot Cam and ASA Cam that work with stock valve train and upgraded springs. ASA cam has a nice flat torque curve and Both cams are low lift around .525 but have a little more duration. Mak...

Re: Round or square?

That is the route I took. Stainless is the only way to go, IF you are going to powder coat it or paint it you can use 304 and save a little money.

I used 304 and Saltwater fish all the time. Rigging is 5 years old and no issues other than my crappy welding skills.

Re: Overheating problem. Any help would be appreciated!

I ran the set-up that deano described bit I used a gutted thermostat. Also ran a large dual pass radiator. Never got 170 and ran around 150 unless I was running it hard.

I never ran an expansion tank either. Worked great for the 10 years I ran it.

Re: Gearbox talk

Jeep sent you a PM

As long as you have motor making plenty of torque and a good torque curve I will have less effect than say on my stock 5.3

Kind of like you can run 44" tire on a Toyota with a 22R if you have the right gears. Put a strong v8 in it and the gearing is not as critical.
