sup foul.. You rode in it with the last motor, I added about 65-70 hp since then it was the intake grates i modified, put stock ones back in and it doesn't heat up . No problems anymore

You should hear how loud it is now with a nice crisp 12.7:1 comp ratio at 6000 rpm almost gotta wear ear plugs

dyno.. you think I am on the edge with the alpha huh?? LMAO!! Me too been crossing my fingers the last few years. boat weights about 3000lbs with fuel and neccesities Have a nice sirmek drive shower wizzin on it. Put more holes in it and made them bigger too, it never gets hot now.

problem child will be paid for in the spring and will be looking for a new boat, I will keep this one, I just want to find a another nice boat to work on for a while

And not that long ago he was fed up with boating and wanted to sell the Problem Child. Then he was fed up with snowmobiling and wanted to get rid of the Doo.

So, you want something to work on? Buy the 'Foul!!!!!! I'll make you SUCH a deal!

Yeah, I thought I would be better off with the money from selling it. But I don't owe much on it anymore, a couple paychecks and its mine

kept the doo who would wanna buy a sled with the **** beat outta it I worked on the sled till i was happy with how it ran and looked.. I am a happy boy now


I might have the foul in mind when the time comes
