I am working on a new project. A friend of mine introduced me to Keith Eickert. When I spoke to him on the phone I felt like I was meeting a celebrity. I have to say, he is a very nice guy! When I told him what I was doing he agreed to help. After talking with him, it took me 16 hours to decide to let him do the work, have the engines pulled from the boat, got someone to rent a trailer, and got the motors to Eickert shop 200 miles away. I guess I didn't want to give him a chance to change his mind. He is going to see what he can do to bump up the power. Also change what ever he has to raise my RPM redline to over 6500. I'm excited to see what he can do with these. I'm going to need every bit of HP he can get out of these.

In the past kieth has had problems with people that wanted to "help" him.. no matter what he has always been a class act!.... the real KIETH EICKERT is back!! and back to stay!

I prefer to build my own, just wish I had a full machine shop so I could do more of the machine work.
