Well basically all he did was change the springs and valves and a few other things, nothing major. The motors are just 502 blocks with blowers on top. The only reason the motors are even out the boat was because of a rotten stringer. so since they were out we had them do those few things. When he took them apart he noticed that the blower had gone bad (420 b&m megablower) , so we had to change a few parts in there too. Yes 3 lbs of boost is conservative, but we want to keep the motors running for as long as possible and also that is how they were set when the boat was purchased.
