Default My Formula 400SS Re-Power

I have been really busy the last few weeks with work and searching for either rebuilding my 502 or repowering, so I bought some 496HO's and finally got the boat back together this past week. Hydro locked one of my 502's on Friday the 4th of July and got it back together this past Friday....


I would like to say a HUGE Thank You to Ken K. (OSO Member Metal Bros. Racing) for helping me with the new engines. I bought the pair from Ken and he was great to deal with, I appreciate it buddy!!!!!

Here is my extremely dirty bilge and the 502's we pulled out...

Had the boys detailing the boat except the last five feet of it at least....

Lap Top checking all systems are up and operating like they should...

Putting the Hatch back on, this was one of the worst parts of the job....

Big Thanks to my good friend Jay with Maryland Marine, we started at noonish on Thursday and we were waiting for the Hydralic Trailer at around 3PM on Friday to drop us in for the shake down cruise... Everything went great!!! We went out Saturday (after scrubbing the back 5 feet of boat the guys couldn get to ) and Sunday with alot of friends and other boats on the Bay and it felt great to be back out....
