When you say most guys cheap out on the blowers what do you mean by that?

Chroming usually weakens the part too

Of Course -You have no choice if you are at all serious and run in the ocean.

Pick one with.

1. the ability to get in and dump without tools.
2. the ability to backflush with a screw in hose connection.

I mean they cut corners on the parts and machining they need because they listen to the wrong people.

I like the idea of dumping the strainer without tools.
I was thinking of building a little box in my engine compartment to hold a few tools belts and some oil.
I was thinking if I went the blower route that I would do a 383.
But I think if I built a good 427 sb I would probably get to as fast as i would want.
Are blowers really bad on fuel?

I forgot does the strainer go before the seapump?

Usually it does.

This stops the kelp, moss, grass, from choking the sea pump, and keeps this trash out of your coolers.....

Ive seen poeple do ALL KINDS of weird stuff though......

500HP of energy takes x amount of fuel no matter how you deliver it.
Blowers have some parasitic loss for sure.
Whipples are really good as far as adiabatic efficiency compared to roots type blowers.

IS there much point in having the power steering fuild cooler?

Depends of how hard you are pushing against xHP of water flow and how often. Oil when pushed around- gets hot.

If you go external, steering this is usually taken care of.

Would an add on external kit be good that taps into the stock steering?
