oh yeah, I almost forgot. We built this to be a pump gas motor and so far it is just that! Ran great on the thrust tester with 93 octane.

That thing is pretty.

Hard to believe you will keep it right side up with all that motor.

A few questions. What heads are you using and what are the cam specs? How much timing do you run for pump 93 octane? What comp is it. My power requirements are simular to yours but it is a jet boat.

The motor was built in florida by a company called Waterthunder proformance, they specalize in LS motors for airboat use. Though they have built engines for drag cars, jet, boats, drag airboats, and airboats. I'm currently in Iraq and I've yet to lay my eyes on the motor and I wasn't involed to much in the build up of it. Dave has done tones of R&D on his custom cam grinds from carbed and EFI engine and I don't think he'll be giving out the specs. The heads are L92.

You can check out his website www.waterthunder.com or even give him a call, but he's an engine builder and all the R&D he has done puts food on his table, I doubt he'll give any info up at all unless your considering buying a motor from him.

you can also see more pictures of the engine/boat build on my site, www.bullshithill.org

My boat is pretty big(8'x16') and it really isn't built for speed. If I took this motor and put it on a small hull I could make it scream. I haven't got it on the water yet but it will be around 40-50mph. The boat will also pretty much go anywhere on dry land and up hills.

The drag racing airboats run a 400' track and top out around 98 mph in the unlimited class in 400'. They'll goes faster, but the get pretty squirrly and it takes some ***** to stay in the gas to get up to higher speeds.

I just noticed that they was core plugs in the heads so they may be catherderal ports. Not bad or good just an observation. Awsome looking engine.

I assume that you are over ther in the service so even though I am from Canada I would like to say thanks for your service!!

If he's in the service hes been saving his money since he got there that thing looks expensive. I would guess contractor. Blackwater or similar?
