Send a PM to Dueclaws. He had a some blower motors built last year. I think it was Owens racing who did the work. I think they are in the Houston area, that is where deuclaws runs his boat. He seems very satisfied with the engines.

What about Leon Derebery in Pottsboro @ Lake Texoma. I know he's built some big power for a few guys here in OK and he was or still is the crew chief for xtreme carlos and charlies. Some of the racers can verify...

Dredge,

Let us know what you find out. I'm interested in building a pair this next winter.

Jim Burns of Regency Marine in Rowlett (D/FW): 972-475-0100

Tell 'em that Clay sent you!
