Default And you thought what we did was a waste of money and comon sense

I couldn't help laughing and asking all sorts of questions when I sold some headers to this guy in Maine. I even sent up a diesel caterpillar engine that they bolted 2 turbos to and made 3000 hp. They race lobster boats in a five mile straight line. The engines are up front and the exhaust and water dump out and slosh past the driver and out the scuppers.Here is an e-mail he sent me today.

Dan-
I purchased 2 sets of Stellings exhaust headers from you back in May of 2000. They worked out great, I now have the Fastest Lobsterboat Speed Record (check out www.lunasearacing.com ). I was wondering if you have, or know of any shorter ones for sale, or maybe a set of stainless marine Hi Torque III?
Thanks, Jim Clemons

Now I know why a good tail costs $40+ bucks.
At least it's going to a good cause.
