Engine Mechanical / Electrical / LS Engine anyone??
« on: February 21, 2011, 10:09:02 PM »
Im sure this has been brought up before however I was unable to find the thread  :screwy:

Has anyone put LS power into their boats? If not why not?

Have been considering this for a while, my old man has an LS 6 hanging out in his garage, we were going to use if for sand toys but the grand idea of a marine application came to mind anythoughts would be great!

GT, I was searching for the 455 marine set but came up short... ???

Does fel pro make a marine application? if so a link would be greatly appreciated

what do you guys think is a healthy ratio between torque and HP for a SBC
street application?

In a world where torque=RPM  like ours, why wouldent everyone want to switch a high reving machine??? :screwy:

Could someone comment so I can better understand the knowledge  :banghead:

hey fellas,putting new gaskets (full rebuild)  on the 455.... does anyone use any specific type or brand (quality vs cost)  for the higher volume of water pressure marine application???

Also what do you think of this do-hickie to combat the milk shake?

« on: February 01, 2011, 04:36:05 PM »
the olds 455 runs decent but im fighting the milk shake, I think i need a better regulator for the cooling system, and I would prefer to use a sbc or bbc for the ease and cost of future parts... plus i have a pretty nice 350 for free to throw in there

The setup looks good on the 350 anything special done there?

ok guys, change of plans got a free 350!! cant go wrong, however needs to be rebuilt but thats code for a small beast  >:D

What are going to be issues swaping from the 455 to the 350?
what do you recommend for a good powertrain combination for family boatability and power going threw this thing??
any suggestions would be appreciated

thanks again Gurus  O0

MBlack would like to see your wiring pics once your done, wanna do the same myself but not F-it up  :screwy:

This boat is rediculous.... >:D Love it

Had mine done in Victorville, for around  $3500 there are 4 colors  used and of course the  gel coat, if you want to see in dept pics ill email them to you, I thought they did a rather good job...Not much for cost analysis though so you guys tell me if that was a good deal

« on: April 01, 2010, 07:05:58 AM »
JBL subs and Kicker subs are great additions, and do wonders with just one. for speakers Infinity makes some good marine grade speakers but they can be a little pricey if your lookin for an exotic look Audiobahn on ebay will work  O0

« on: April 01, 2010, 07:00:42 AM »
I agree with these guys, Been wiring stereos for a while now and marine wire is over rated, best to use the low voltage stuff or put some epoy on your wires

Hey fellas,
Looking into a way to keep the Family boat running more consisntent, I have an edelbrock marine 1410 carb that is fairly new, its doing the job, but just seems to constantly need adjusting  :banghead: Could just be me...maybe I just dont have the mixture quite right :screwy:

What do you guys think of the Fast EZ-EFI???

Audio / Killin the Battery!!!
« on: March 20, 2010, 07:30:15 PM »
Hey guys, I have a little problem I recently baught a 93 caliber 1 with a pretty good sound system however batt problems are comming into play  :banghead: but cant help it, when the ladies are shaken at Havasu can anyone complain...

Any way I have a 10 yr old system that consists of two 5 1/2s two 6x9 and two Orion 15" subs under the closed bow powered by two 2,000 watt orion amps....MONSTER BASS  The problem is the battery gets worn down to nothing after a few hours of play, I have been using seperate batterys for sound and crank but, this is getting old switching between the two  :mad:

Anyone have any thoughts on how i can keep the system with maybe a cross charge switch or somthing??? any web posts for equip would be helpful!!! perhaps could it be that the 10yr old amps are pulling to much??? I dunno  :screwy:

Hey guys, new to boating however durring an oil change of my 455 olds I noticed the oil has a milky discoloration to it, (Not as bad as some have seen on the box wrench marine engine build up video), but it just didnt seem right. I replaced the oil and filter once then ran the engine for 10 min and flushed again. the residue came out the same durring both flushes dark but milky looking....any thoughts???

If water is mixing what are the reprocusions of running the engine like that? :screwy:
