More motor combos will also show more results, so we'll see in the future, but it's certainly better than anything we've tested, even out performs the quad rotor which already out performed the PSI. I'm very excited about this SC, it's my baby

Thanks,
Dustin

I think this would really depend on the objected power level, price of engine, componets available, what type of boating, etc. In general, on 1000+hp engines, I like to see nothing LESS than 10lbs of boost for pump gas. I like to see approx 14lbs for pump gas, max boost level. Race gas setups are far different, I have no problem turning them up to 20lbs and yes, I feel they (engines) will live in a marine envoirnent with very hgh boost levlels ,but require very low compression ratios, a good exhaust flowing head with the right piston, cylinder head combo, as well as camshaft design.

Thanks

VERY nice stuff Dustin, I can't wait to get a pair of them in the new boat. I talked to Mark down at the shoot-out and I guess I will have arm wrestle Richie to get the first set.
Mark seemed excited about them as well. How is the Throttle body coming, I heard that KE was also working on a pretty slick one for this set-up.
Congrats and I can't wait to get a pair.

As for the intercooler, the SC has a 2" plenuem below the triangle discharge port, we use the bottom plate to direct the air where needed for proper distribution. The entire bottom is open to the intercooler. The one we used is the MOAC, which is 1" thicker than what you have and it has 2 more inlet/outlets. Works really good with this plenuem on the bottom, allows it to adapt to a standard 4.1" roots opening, modified roots at 5" or a Whipple intercooler, single core or our double billet which is 8" wide.

Thanks,
Dustin

Thanks Dusting for the reply
2 inlets and 2 outlets in just one core? I guess you are trying to get more water flow thru it?

Thanks
Rob

I think I'm going to have to wait to see your paint job, I heard it was kinda boring I got you on my list still, looking at it right now, your number 3 and 4, sadly, you can't be 1 and 2, because I'm 1 and 2

I think to be fair, I'm going to have to send numbers 3,4,5,6 all at the same time, you can have 3, Richie can have 4 and 5, and you get 6. Everybody is equal

Heard the boat looks awesome, can't wait to see it.

Thanks,
Dustin

Rob,

Yup, were passing far more water, it's also going in on the bottom and exiting the top, which helps take any air out of the system during low psi water flow levels. It's broken up into 4 chambers now vs. 2 previously. There are some other changes as well, larger air passages, smaller water ports, more fpi on the water side. Overall, it has lower psi drop and increased cooling. This of course depends on the boost level, but it's better.

Dustin

Forgot to answer, throttle body is pretty trick, progressive linkage, small blades for off idle, big blades for high flow, oversized flame arrestor, 10 injector ports, oversized bypass valve.

Thanks,
Dustin
