Default Upgrade.

Cams have arrived finally! Still waiting on my aluminum heads then itís go time and re assembly new cranks and all basically new everything but the blocks unfortunately! Builder is expecting to see 570+hp on the dyno same or + on torque! Hoping it will wake these girls up and get this ol Cafe moving at a respectable pace maybe! Iíll update more as we go and I know exactly my build specs are.

soon to have some 088 heads for sale and cams ( mis matched ) available for sale soon. Cheap just to get out of my way. Fingers crossed for all things good for once cause this has been a total roller coaster! Cheers!

Default Heads are in!

Things are starting to shape up my heads came in! Originally was going to go with AFRís but had to switch up due to a very long wait time for some reason so I went with promaxx aluminum heads. After some homework turns out these are actually a great head! Builder has put them on another set of engines he built for a donzi recently and has awesome results! So hopefully I will to!

im about a hour south from Nashville Tennessee in a little town called Tullahoma and spend most of my time on Timís ford lake thatís local to me! Only a dozen or less powerboat guys out there like us kinda makes it boring at times lol!
