Default Before and After

A couple of guys have emailed/PM'd me asking how the the boat is coming along, so I took some pictures this past weekend.

Here's the "before" as received from Fred (Too Old):

And After...still have to install the Stainless Marine manifolds and risers, as well as the accesory belts and tidy up the engine harnesses.

Thanks....
Stripped the entire bilge/engine compartment down to nothing except inner transom assembly's, repaint the compartment with Awlgrip, replace everything, build two 100% brand new engines, upgraded tranny's, all new battery cables, new, trim/tab hoses, plumbing, sea strainers, etc, etc.

What, no twin turbos have snuck in there yet? When do you expect to get it wet?

Nice work -Greg

Greg,

It gets wet this weekend.

You know me, I'm never satisfied. But due to the expense of having to buy or fabricate 2 of everything, I have to take a little more time with the boat than I did with the Vette. I'm thinking that I'll add FAST SEFI (or maybe Meaney's Big Stuff III) to both engines this coming winter, along with a pair of Hogan's and then do the TT thing the following winter.

How's "Project No Points" coming? I just visted the Corvetteforum the other day for he first time in months. Alot of new people, but most of the old gang is still around. Actually, I'm looking for another car project. My first choice is another Vette, but I've always wanted to do a First-gen Camaro. Either way, I'll probaly go with another twin-turbo, stroked SBC like in the old Vette. Only problem of course is that you always have to raise the bar, and my previous 1200hp/1000tq on 92 octane is gonna be hard for me to beat. Plus it seems like the rest of the hot rodding world has finally seen the turbocharged light. Even Mark Steilow is building a TT car for PHR.

Monty,

No Flight hasn't had a lot done recently due to house projects and all the hassles of buying and (trying to at least) selling boats. It's basically done will all of the mock-up work, so now I need to find time (and space) to blow it all apart to paint the frame and start putting it back together. It will be interesting doing the frame, with the full cage the body won't come off, I can only raise it about 6" using spacers on the mounts. I hope to get that this summer, but time is already racing by.

Good luck with the Cig test run this weekend.

-Greg
