9 year OLD WaterThunder EFI motor

Postby Waterthunder » Thu Sep 10, 2015 4:27 pm

A customer just brought his boat in to install a new waterpump. I was looking at the airdoor and had to laugh. We built this motor over 9 years ago back then nobody made a good airdoor for an LS yet so we took a factory fly bye wire one and modified it. Changed the shaft and added a throttle arm and throttle stop. Kind off funny back then all the airboat manufactures hated EFI and LS motors. It did suck doing these before everybody made aftermarket parts for them.

He is very happy with the boat for sure. Unfortunately for us if we sat back and waited for the aftermarket stuff to be developed we could have saved a ton of time and money!
