I have a lot of things I would LIKE to do. Waiting on a few things work related to happen first. Would like to get a bike (VTX 1800) and do some "freshening up" on the boat. Gotta make sure its in the budget first.

This should brighten your day. Dave at the dyno couldn't blow up my motor (yet) and it made 681 [email protected] 5600 rpm, 7 lbs boost. It makes [email protected] at 5 lbs.

I'm here. I have had a lot of things going on over the winter.

Both engines were pulled and are currently being completely rebuilt with upgraded cams, reprogrammed ECU, and upgraded fuel pumps, etc... I heard from the shop earlier in the week that they may be in by this weekend. Once they are back in next step is to locate and fix a leak somewhere in the steering. Also while the motors where out I had some fiberglass work done.

Once I finally get the boat back I plan on installing replacing the stereo head unit and speakers with ones that I have had lying around from my old truck that I sold last year.

The weather here in Texas has been incredible over the last few weeks with the temps last week in the 70ís. Starting to really get anxious to get her back in the water.
