Again, many many many thanks to Dave @ A&D Engines. If anyone needs machine work, hes your man! 100% positive reccomendation from SoCalJetBoats! Ralph and I are VERY happy with the work that was done.

As far as the motor, it ran sluggish with the QFT 850 on it. it was being choked out. it just couldnt feed the motor. We slapped ralph's Dominator 1050 on it and it really made it come alive. We have a muffled studder pop coming out of the motor. The wiring in the boat needs to be gone through then possibly send the distributor off to MSD to get tested/repaired.

with a standard nozzle adapter, standard nozzle, no shoe, no rideplate, no wedges, no serious dial in tuning on the motor either...and she ran like a bat out of hell.

just to note, David at A&D engines was in contact with me on a daily basis concerning the machine work on this build. We told him where we wanted the bearing clearances and he hit the #'s as well as the piston to wall clearance. Every thing was spot on ;) which made our job of assy pretty much a breeze. The scat crank was not perfect out of the box so it had to go to Castillo's for a touch up. since it is a cast crank we decided to heat treat it while it was there.  Since this motor was for a race only application (endurance racing at that) we had the bearing clearances set pretty wide, the thinking behind this is that if we had oil pressure issues we could correct it in a number of ways. 1) change from the 20/50 oil to a thicker oil. 2) shim the high flow dynamics oil pump. 3) tighten the bearing clearances up by using the top half of a .001 tighter bearing to gain .0005 tighter clearance.

When we primed the oil system i was a little disappointed at the 75 psi we were getting :(  I was hoping for 80. but as long as the oil pressure came up with rpm i would be happy. so we fired the motor and she had 82 psi witch made me happy ;D as the oil became hotter the pressure dropped as expected. When the motor was reved up the oil pressure came with it. After Brad ran it up and down the river a couple of times the pressure remained at 75psi until idle then it came down to 35 psi witch told us that the oil system was working. i kept asking Brad what the rpm's were but all he kept telling me is that he had no time to look at the tach :-\ I thew the gps in the boat and i will say under a bad tune (popping) it ran over 80mph.

there is more work ahead but for know the basics are done. :thumbup:

The absolute most valuable tool we ever used is a memory tach, it logs the tallest RPM until reset. we would routinely rest it every time the pump came oput of the water as to not have false readings.

Circle racing cannot be a lot different than whitewater marathons with the exeption that there are two people (or four eyes if you think like our driver) watching the vitals, but you don't get a lot of opportunities to "scan" the gauges. :sly:

Sounds like a badass project and can't wait to see it in action...

Awesome build! I'm sure that thing is nasty.... looks like alot of precision work going in that thing.... should haul ass!

Of course we can't know the secret GPS numbers  ;D

And wouldn't it be a 513ci?  ???  ;D

Looks great, I bet that thing sounds nasty. What's the compression come out to be?

Moon gauges, whatcha gonna do wit 'em? Few things, Brad try to keep thar left hand off the torque wrench. When you setup TDC you did stop in the hole w/ the indicater and reverse it to the same spot the other way, right? And, did you set your timing pointer (not the wire) while you had it at true TDC? Looks good, good work boys.
