The No Wake Zone / Hot Rod/Fab Shops in SD?
« on: March 01, 2011, 01:49:58 PM »
I have a '41 Poncho 4-door with a late model Mustang engine, tranny, and rear ready to go in.  Any recommendations for shops in the area?  I don't trust my (lack of) skills to make mounts and cross members and expect everything to line up as it should...  I'll leave this up to the pro's.

Looking for a basic 350 and OD Trans (200 or 700r4) package for a car project.  Doesn't have to be high hp - but must be in good shape.  Could use a rear as well if you have one (9" or 8.8).

Got anything?

The No Wake Zone / Looking for A/C in San Diego
« on: July 22, 2009, 07:21:59 PM »
I'd like to put it out there if anyone on the boards does this (or knows someone) that does it for a living.  I figure I'd get treated better here than looking in the yellow pages.  I have an old house built in the 30's that has heat and air from the 30's (or lack thereof).  Plenty of room in the attic or below the house for ducting.  I have a newborn and we'll be spending more time at home.

The No Wake Zone / Boat Condo or storage in San Diego area?
« on: February 06, 2009, 12:08:39 PM »
Anyone got a hook-up or info for indoor boat storage in the San Diego area (hell, anywhere from North County to Santucky is fine for me)?  I don't want my new baby outside and it won't fit at my place until I extend the garage.  Looking for ~10'x30'.  Currently I've got her in a warehouse in LA, I'd be nice to have her closer.

I've seen "boat condo" prices range from $189 to >$400 with some quick internet shopping -I was hoping someone here may have an inside connection or the 4-1-1 for reasonable rates.


Boats For Sale / Selling my girl... Team Hawaiian Euro
« on: November 30, 2008, 02:30:20 PM »
Here you go guys...

1996 Team Hawaiian Euro Open Bow.  Marine Power 454 HO Sportpac (390 hp).  Dominator w/Hydrolic Place Diverter.  I purchased this about 3 years ago and have had a great time with it.  After purchasing I had the boat completely gone through at San Diego Perf. Marine.  New high perf. heads (990's) complete pump rebuild with an "A" impeller (almost 7k in receipts).  This is a clean turn-key boat.  Starts up every time and runs like a champ -I haven't had a single problem since it was gone through.  The boat is a '96 but shows better than others of this age.  No corney Miami Vice pink and blues.  The interior is in near perfect condition, any aged pieces have been re-upholstered.  This boat has the best of both worlds:  the long V hull plows through rough water and the jet allows safe operation.  It cruises in the 40's (on the primaries) for good economy and will top out in the 50's with the right load.  Take all your friends out for a fun day on the water!  Tandem axle trailer included, along with a bimini to keep you cool on the hot days.  Good for local lake, lower river, and even Havasu.  It's been a sold boat for me -just moving up to the next level.  asking $16.5k

The No Wake Zone / How long is your Roost?
« on: August 19, 2008, 11:29:42 AM »
Different topic on the same subject.  Usually it's about height, but we know the chicks dig length  O0  Last year, while day camping in Havi my pops took a candid vid of me making a run down the lake... I was surprised how long it was.  Figuring the boat is nearly 25' it looks like a 100'++ tail.  I'll find the vid and post it later.

In the meantime, post your pics!  Let's go for real numbers... not internet length.

all I got for now.  With the trailing end cut -I'd say 100' here.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Hey Jet boat gurus - Blow Me
« on: August 12, 2008, 01:34:13 PM »
Well at least give me some advice on how to get blown...   ;D

I saw this kit on craigslist:  B&M 250, carbs, intake, chiller, etc.

Does anyone know who's this is?  What would it really take to get up and running in my BBC?  I have basically a stock '96 Marine Power "hi-performance" 454.  I believe 8.5:1.  GM hi-perf. 990's.  Forged pistons, stock cam, holds 12qts-o-oil.  Currently shy of 400hp.  This looks like a full package deal.  Add bit of plumbing and a larger fuel pump to set it up?  I'd likely run 4# to be on the safe side so I can run pump gas.  Although I know the wife may kill me if she looses her sun lounge  ::)

Any ideas?  Thanks

SoCal Lakes / San V, closing and BIG Catfish
« on: August 05, 2008, 11:28:39 AM »
Expect more people to move on over to El Cap.   :(

San Vicente had a new state record blue catfish caught on Thursday, July 24th, 113.4 lbs.

September 1st, Labor Day, will be San Vicente's last day open. Then it will be closed for 6 to 9 years for the Raise the Height of the Dam project.

Jet Pumps / Calibrate Pressure Relief Valve (watkins)
« on: June 24, 2008, 02:20:37 PM »
What the best way to do it?

My guess is to attach a pressure gauge to the inlet set the air at 20 or 30# and twist till it drops to 18# and begins to bleed out?  My question being, will the air bleed the same as water?

Jet Pumps / Leaky Pump pulling skiers
« on: May 08, 2008, 02:26:51 PM »
Does anyone else have this problem?  I realize most the jets here aren't pulling up skiers and wake boarders, I tend to do so most of times I'm out for a couple of runs.  The pump barely trickles in at rest and while underway -just the slightest drip every once in awhile - but when pulling skiers the bilge fills pretty quick... should the thrust bearings be tightened down?  Kind of a catch 22, too tight = problems, too loose = water.

The No Wake Zone / Anyone know of Boat Storage in SD?
« on: February 24, 2008, 12:19:48 PM »
Looking for a buddy of mine.  He needs a place to store his 22' Scarab (total length 24-25' I would guess).  Looks like the place he was renting from gave him a whopping week notice that they were shutting their facility down  >:(.  If anyone has numbers or rates, I'm sure it would be appreciated.  Prefer central SD/or inland....  thankx

So what would it really take to swap a carbed 454 for one of these?  Is it as simple as plug-and-play?   


Saw this on C/L:

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / How long between oil changes?
« on: January 06, 2008, 03:20:34 PM »
Reading the thread about installing a remote oil filter got me thinking; how often do you change your oil?

If you're tearing down your engine after a weekend of racing -it makes sense that it happens more often than the average user... but what about the rest of us?  So my last change was less than 30 hours of run time between changes.  Too long, too short?  I have a 10 qt. pan and two filters.    There are tons of variables that can dictate when to change.  I spend lots of time at idle and partial throttle vs. wide open, but never-the-less, what's your rule of thumb???


Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Out with the Q-jet in with Holley
« on: December 12, 2007, 06:22:25 PM »
I'll open up a new thread (yeah, I jacked the other one.) 

Question for you folks... I'm ditching my Q-jet and bought a Holley 800dp (4150, 9022).  I'm a newb on this so bear with me.  To make this change I'll need the spreed bore/square bore adapter, new gasket, and fuel log.  Anything else?  What about the carb spacers... any advantage to these?  Holley says this should work out of the box, is this true?  Any tuning needed?  If it needs tuning what really needs to be done except adjusting idle?  Any takers to help a brotha out   O0????  Free beer and stripers (well the beer at least.)


beerjet, thanks for the feedback.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / So what will get me another 100 hp?
« on: October 02, 2007, 11:26:23 AM »
I figure with some down time this winter it may be the right time to give the cruiser a little more pep.  I figure another 100 hp would be a good target to work for (~500hp).  Currently everything works flawless, I'm just kicking the ideas around.  I hate to tear down something that works, but more is always better!

The engine is a '96 Marine Power 454 ~390 hp (spinning an A ~4800-4900), forged pistons, new gm hi-perf sq port heads, rpm type intake, q-jet carb (works for now), 9.5:1 compression.  Pump gas is a must and not squeezing.

What are the options without tearing though everything?  Blower... too much compression?  Stroke it to a 496?  If so, what are your estimates on the build  $  ???  Any help   ;D
