Another 2 degrees of wing angle will compensate.....
Speaking of dik......it barely fits in this CMI!

Here is a before shot....... That was after 1 set of 454 mags....wore them out......one set of blower motors....blown up.....one set of drag race huntsville engine specials with custom piss and pop cams......never would stay together, one set of 500 hps....put 188 hours on them....and now the 750's with about 60 hours on them.....it is safe to say I have used the hell out of it!! I threw a set of hour meters away that had 860 hours on them before I put the 500's in. I could retire if I had the money I spent on gas and motors in this thing.

That is my Kentucky connection Hoghead helping me with a 500hp merc conversion!

Here is a pic of KennyO breaking it off in me. Me and Liquid Liability did all the prep work and taping......Kennyo came over with a case of beer and a paint gun. I gave him a $2000 set of headers to trade for paint work. It took him 15 minutes to paint the stripes and then he hauled azz saying "holla at me when you wanna do some more tradin!"

It looks like you climbed back there and dropped a load of soft serve chit in the corner after eating some fajita's and refried's on the Thunder Rodriguez Stryker!!

And of all places to finally bust my hundred-post cherry it had to be on a total B.S. Stryker thread....WTF?

Here are a few shots from when I just started rigging the engine compartment. These are after the new transom, stringers, etc. and a fresh coat of white gel in the bilge.

John,

That is a nice looking Stryker. I will swap you a ride in that for a chance to drive the X-18 any day

I also have another boat that may be worthy of a ride this spring when Eddie gets done.
