WOW, I am really curious what kind of numbers they will see in the Nortech. What kind of numbers are they seeing out of the Apache, and where is that boat located?

Hi Nobody:

I like how you did the throttle bodies; the lower position of the turbo made that possible. But I would like to see you using a much bigger intercooler like the one on our twin centrifugal setup that you saw at LOTO last year. It's available for all the turbo guys looking for this much power, with a modified Dart tunnel ram intake.

Thanks,

Tom
That's not one of my motors in that pic.
Here are some pics of the intercoolers I made for a set of turbo motors. Every square inch of it is core.

Saxman,your eye is as fast as your B-Thunder. That is all Brad Smith power. I saw most of his specs step by step. They made BIG BIG power at a relativly low RPM for longevity.


Are those the PSI-B-2 on your boat?

HEY! What's that supposed to mean?

Yeah, we have the PSI 206 B compressors. So, the age old question, how fast is white lightning?

My bad I was rushing had been on PSI.com and thought that was what you had. I simply did a typo,I do that alot rushing.

I honestly keep having a fuel pressure issue when I try and reach for the big #. The boat had set along time and just continues to need our love,seems as soon as we fix or make something better we have another small issue,no big deal we will get thier,takes time as you well know. The old man said 128, Roper said 122 that he was in it. WE THINK 117-120 with the current set up since we are making a little more power. I hope. It is a rough water boat all the way,and we are planning for bigger power in 08.

What do you think of Brad's design,impressive to say the least,and made real power early on?????
