Just curious what the joke is with the bolts? Joe @ Fast Forward Race Engines has built 3,500 hp BBC with ARP 2000 bolts... The rod bolt is not your problem if its broke lol

I have never had a motor come apart when using good old Ace Hardware grade 8 bolts for the rods...





But then again I have never put a motor together with Ace Harware bolts.........

if I can I will be going 10 disc, I may have to run the 7 disc for another season, they are fresh and didnt have any issues behind the 600's I will at least have a spare and my buddy does them for me so if I smoke one it isn't a huge problem..it all depends on money available, I don't use credit for boating

Something went on with rod bolts in another thread, I saw a little of it, but then was deleted...

I have a pair of cams out of some 540's with about 20 or so hours on them. Spec'd by an engine builder.

I will post pics and info along the way, with the help of my best buddy Scott (Lake Effect) and guys like Joe (Mild Thunder) all issues will be addressed and hope to have new reliable 650-700 hp when I am done...

boat ran 73.4 with 600 hp and TRS so lets see what happens!!
Good luck but out of curiosity why not go for more power considering you are going through this much work?

My heads will limit power, I really don't wanna put more HP then 700 to TRS in a Mistress, I expect to have some issues as it is, more power is just more issues, I want some kinda of faith in running it hard, I am not easy on my boat at all...
