Question?......If this boat is tooooo fast( 70mph...whatever) with these so called old school Corvette motors... Then how fast did this dude think this boat was going to go with procharged LT-4 motors? Read this guys threads........He throws out a lot of terminology with absolutely no logic. Something is not right here.

The Chevy and Toyota joint-venture in 1985..made be more about it but you guys get the point...OH hold on now we are talking about a Nova boat not cars..all this talk about corvette motors and nova's got me confused..sorry! J/K
I shouldn't talk I have a old junk wellcraft excalibur..

Oh yeah didnt the LT4 vette motor have the opti spark just like the LT1..if so good luck with that. Just swaping out a water pump and getting an once of coolant on it would destroy the opti spark, can't image those motors in a boat and what salt water would do to them.

People say they will live fine as long as I don't jump on them out of the hole. I bought the boat yesterday...twin 350's, and I have two nitrous kits (150 hp) that I'm installing today. She ran 59mph on gps the day I bought her...the spray should have me near 70. Thank god she has twins....the alphas will be tested. I did order drive showers as well....these should help??
