Here is a photo when new and a poor shot of the exhausr being tested on the dyno.





Also been looking at some photos and am getting the feeling I will stay with the Small blocks. Its the fuel tanks. To go O/B I would need to build all new ones and that is not in the budget !

Time to start looking for a new block ? LOL

There you go! You ran 600 hp small blocks on staggered alpha ss drives! That is awesome. Great pics, let's see those staggered drives. Cool boat!

Were in Glendale,AZ.

Here is a shot with one motor out and very dirty. Can't seem to find motor room photos. Will keep looking.

Man those Y pipes are so cool. Did you weld those yourself? The Y was a piece you bought and fabbed the rest? Is it true by using the 2 into 1 pipe it creates more torque? Great pics!

Also does the water and exhaust mix at the Y or are they dry all the way out (double wall)

Yes, about 15 F/lbs. at 5200

Here is a shot with the tall first pipe. When we cut it down to go under the new canopy deck we found another 2 F/lbs. Funny how shorter first pipe helped.

Dry all the way to the end and has a lower outlet just over the drive. May also help keep the drive cooler or warmer ? Water should be around 140 Deg. + - ?

When I started with the SS's , their were no counters. Also using a 20" stager the drives almost pull like a very big single.With the external steering their is no pull at the wheel. She is a great flyer !



Very big jump.
