Littleb4,

Not sure on the hotel or the price yet. When are you heading down? I heard Ft. Lauderdale is a lot less $ than Miami.

Catn,
CMI Sport tubes should be awesome! I have lightenings and they are loud! I am building a Blown 502. It is going to be conservative though! I can't wait to dyno it! I forget what do you have for power?

Catn,

I am anxious to know my HP also! I will let you know. I hope 700 +/-! I don't have any dates yet but it will probably be sometime in August.

ITLLFLI,

I just moved to Cincinnati a few months ago. Are there many fast boats on the Ohio River? Where do the performance boats hang out? Since I have an American Offshore 26NSX, we need to stick together.

Welcome to the Natti! Yes there are some heavy hitters on the river! Look out for a yellow AO! Couple of AO'S, SKATERS, Eliminators, Awesome, Fountains, Baja's, Formulas, Donzi's. On any given weekend during the summer you will see them all throughout downtown. Lot's of people make the 3 hour trip to Cumberland often also. Ton's of hot rods down ther also! What part of town do you live in? What kind of power do you have in your NSX?

I live on the East side in Pierce Township. I've seen pictures of your boat; it's the best looking AO I've ever seen. I have a 540 (built by Lingenfelter Performance Engineering) with a PFM Gorilla digital EFI with dual throttle body, intercooler and M3 ProCharger. Last year I added an IMCO Xtreme Advantage SC outdrive (1:34). Where do you live? Do you keep your boat near the airport?
