Post by: Warlock on February 16, 2007, 12:24:58 PM
Which is the motor of choice for SoCalJetters? I'm guessing not the Merc... ;D

I voted 'Other' since there wasn't a 'I aint got a fukkin motor yet' option available.

What kind of motor do you perfer?

By the way I run a Hardin Marine Factory Hi Performance 429. With a tunnel ram and dual Holly 750's.

I am kinda on the fence with this one....I know chevy seems to be the favored motor for jetters, but I lean a bit more towards ford because i am bias.

I have Ford roots in my family tree. I am related to Don Sullivan aka Sully. Heres a neat article about him....

http://thehotrodsofdearborn.com/sully.html

The short story is that he was one of the head engineers apointed by Henry Ford to develop the first V8 and he was the one who originally designed the V8 logo. He was a major contributor to Ford for many years.

How many times have I posted that I had a freakin' 460 in my old Tahiti with a Panther jet....I beat the piss outta that boat for 2 years and sold it 'cause the boat developed a crack along a stringer where the motor mounted...I got it fixed but I couldn't get that crack outta my mind every time I would hit a wake....and I thought me and Marcsarollin' were cool with each other? ??? Didn't see the post but damn....moron.. :'(  Only Hotrod can call me that.... ;D
