Default Interesting skater

A friend sent me some pics of a skater getting painted and it looks like a barn find. Says torque power on the side and has those engines in it. Doesn't look to have been run in a long time. Didn't see many boats with those for power[ATTACH=CONFIG]549141[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]549142[/ATTACH]

I think Torque was part of the Callan companies at one point.

that boat was in loto area last i heard. used to have some old photos of it. was in poor shape. and it was missing one of those lambo v12 isnt it? or it was at one time. i think i remember the price being real reasonable for what it was.. but trying to track down a maraniezed lambo v12 would be a pain. or just totally repowering the boat with different power would be crazy money too unless used a doner boat. still a cool boat. whats the plan for it? whose painting it

Somehow I'm remembering this powerboat for sale years back on a lot right before the bridge crossing over to Seaside Heights NJ. I hoped TORQUE would go, but I'm not sure why they didn't. There's a story about TORQUE somewhere, I believe a top engine builder tried to sort it out.

Was Torque any relation to the Falconer V12 from the early 90's?

mechanical fuel injection is a pita on a v8 sprint car, but at least we can back them down when they hydro-lock with fuel, re-tuning them as atmospheric conditions change is a constant.

I cant imagine nor would I ever expect success with that system on a V-12. Convert to electronic injectors or even carbs and then you may have something.

Very cool even so.
