With all these in the works projects, i guess i have to show mine. Not really, this is just a garage show piece. I cant wait to see what happens in the next year with EFI Turbo setups.

Bob Kaiser in his systems offshore team had some turbos on his boat. The technology was not there but he had the right ideas. Small blocks with turbos. The boat was introduced in 1989 and went on working the bugs out through out the season. The technology was just not there.

I don't believe you can actually call them small blocks as they were merely a 454 de stroked to a 348.

Gentry did the same thing to get around the rules.

Kaiser's engines were the product of Mike D'Anniballe's work in his early days.

490 cu in @15 lbs boost = 1540hp in racing ski boat. Combination is very durable, EGT's stabilize in the mid 1400's an hour at a time for each race. This is a common combination made by Gary Teague @ GT Performance. He also makes a lower profile version for pump gas at roughly 1100hp. 909-982-8391
