Im new to this site, just moved here from to austin tx from california. looking forward to racing with the sdba here in texas. I run a 1200hp Boss 429 punched out to 500ci in a 300lb jet boat. I cant get enough, love it. looking to build a drag car at some point this year too, to run the local drag strips.

Hey buddy !!! It ran 8.40 at 127mph with the last setup, but the carbs were in left field. the motor got a full aviad dry sump, so after the dyno this winter we should be knocking on the High 7 second or low 8 seconds. Cant wait till march !!!

I know that first one! Very Happy Now was the second boat the one that held the PGJ record for awhile?

Hey Lem, you still got that nice video that was made of your Daytona? I seen it awhile back but can't remember where, if you have it could you post it up somewhere? Thanks Very Happy

Looks like it might be a A460 headed motor with a Holmes TR that used to be in your boat, but thats just a guess from how tall the TR looks. Smile

Here's a clip of a pass when it had the 665 cubic inch combo in it, running in the 9's with a throttle stop. This clip has audio. Click HERE.
