Default Creative rigging..

I've had some beauties come through the shop lately and this one I just had to share.. This was supplying a 1000hp (supposedly) blower motor. I'll dyno the motor this weekend, that should be equally entertaining. This was supplied by a stock merc water sep filter too, and installed well above the top of the tank, with the stock pick up. I can save a lot of time now that I've learned ths trick!

Lets take a power steering cooler and put it in the return line with some hose clamps, that will help right?

Hey man, why are you making fun of the fuel system I just finished up. That was some of my better work.

I can relate with you. I have seen some incredible stuff over the last few years. It is amazing that it runs at all. Then they are dumbfounded when it blows up. Everyone is scratching their head trying to figure out what went wrong when the engine is full of stuff like that.

I thought you might appreciate that little trick Eddie.
This is the third boat this year from the same shop. All of them burnt up in one way or another. One of them literally! This guy's engines are just as good as his rigging.. I have also seen a lot of good engines that never stood a chance and some good builders get thrown under the bus due to a chitty install.

Also the brass fittings are way too small and brass fittings should never be used on a big power engine. I would be afraid of blowing the engine on the dyno with that setup.

We sell S-X pumps. I have also seen this many times. The customer will blame the blow up on the pump.
