Ok.... Update... It looks like I am going to ditch my attempts at adding a Captain Call and just go straight through transom. This will save me some $ by selling the Corsa Captains Call I had purchased off e-bay.
I am actively looking for a used set of exhaust manifolds (ie: Stainless Marine) for 1k.
My motor now:
Chevy Bowtie Block
502 Marine HP Heads (Fresh springs and conical valves)
Roller Rockers BB 1.7 "PRO SERIES"
Edlebrock Airgap RPM intake manifold
SRP lightweight flat tops
Holly 850 Double Pumper
Anyone want to make a HP estimate???
I have a Bravo 1 outdrive with a Mirage 25P prop (Sorry guys I misread… swore it was a 26P)
I purchased some insta-trim heavy duty dual piston trim tabs for added control…
I am thinking that I will add the Zeiger add on Single Ram hydraulic steering system for added control and safety from CPP… when I have more money I can buy the “inside kit” (about $1,300) to go full hydro. Ugh at the cost..
You guys are awesome! I appreciate the support and I will post some pictures of Iraq when I get there (I can show you some from my first tour if your interested)… until then I GREATLY appreciate all the help in getting my new Money Pit water worthy!!
