Sorry Guy's I forgot about my post.....Well here is the whole deal.
- One on of my best friends Rob Schooping owns HTG Racing on Grand Island NY did all of the Motor and Head work along with assembly, Etc. During the whole project he/we worked with Tyler who was Great!!!
- We put everything in Tyler does and some parts came right from Tyler such as Cams, ECM's, Etc.
- I am now trying to dial the props in becasue yes their is a big difference. I was running labbed 26's 5,150rpms @ 78.1mph, now same props on the rev. limiters 5,500 @ 80.1mph
so I ran bone stock 28's 4,600 @ 79.8mph so they will be getting labbed.

Hey Sam I was only down for about two weeks but yes Jim is back in action! When are you going to buy something????

Jboat I hear yeah on the prop thing but having more power to get dial in is a good thing!!! One thing I am trying to do is get rid of some of my fuel, I have a full tank of 155 gallons

It is not fair to the customers that already paid to get going on their project. You get in line in the order you pay just like everywere else. I am not being a ***** here but there are 3 people working in my shop including myself and I do most of the machine work and do all the dyno and computer programing and take 50 to 75 phone calls a day plus order all the parts for the jobs. Yea I know your next question why don't I hire someone to answer my Phone Because everyone wants to talk to me. The only people that usually complain are the ones that have no clue what it takes to pull a engine out of a boat , build it and put it back in and have it right in a timelly fashion. Well I have to go to work to put my 16 hour day in. Tyler

Mr Crockette I was not bashing you in any way. So Cool you jets. I responded to this thread just as someone else had in another thread that day. I never pushed you to get my boat done as I knew how the getting in line thing goes. I have always said you do great work so I am not sure why your ticked here. I have spent many hours over the years at your shop so I know how your shop works. In fact I would rather you keep it the way you have it as the guys you have do great work. And for the record if you only put in 16 hours the day of your post it was a short day for you, I have seen you work around the clock many times to get someones boat completed.
