How to Twin Turbo LS Engines

Sat, 02/13/2016 - 22:13
Looking for some advice on whats the best way to go to set up twin turbos on a LS engine, LS1 or2 or L98 probably. Will be stock engine, prepared to upgrade cam/springs, probably 10psi max, to go in marathon boat. I know it has been done before and was successful. I am not that up with the injection side of things but it seems to be the way forward. So can I buy a kit to slap onto an engine that contains everything I need with intercoolers, or do I need to make it up? Any advice appreciated.

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia Found Dead... OH NO!!!!

Sat, 02/13/2016 - 15:06
:))ThumbsDwn:))ThumbsDwn This is so bad on so many levels. :( Our fears will become confirmed when Obama appoints another liberal SCJ. :)sphss

Then our 2nd Amendment, which was in the balance at a 5-4 vote. It will pitch in the opposite direction. Also at stake is the interpretation of the 14th Amendment. And with the liberal's voracious appetite to populate our country with foreign "refugees", anchor babies, etc, etc. 3rd world country, here we come. Next there will be restrictions on the 1rst. Wait for it... Thanks Obama and the gawd damned liberals!!! :)st

I hope I'm wrong!!!

Finneys Plastic- Help needed

Sat, 02/13/2016 - 10:52
I shipped a windshield to them on January 7th from Northern Ca to see of they could duplicate it. Jane called shortly after the windshield arrived and said they could. She quoted me a price, said it would take about a month to finish. I agreed to the price and gave her my credit card information. She charged the card that day for the full amount.

Fast forward to this week. I have been leaving voice mails and e mails and no one is returning my calls. If they cannot do the work I need the original windshield back so I can take it to another shop to complete the work. The windshield is off a 1970 Arena Craft.

Can anyone that lives in Lake Havasu stop by their shop and ask someone to call me.

WANTED Moon parts

Fri, 02/12/2016 - 19:20
Hi guys. I've recently picked up a small old race boat. I'm trying to restore it to its racing days. I'm told that it used to have a 1.5 or 2 gallon moon tank and moon hydraulic pedal. Does anyone have moon stuff that they'd part with? Let me know. Thanks

Bergeron Marine

Fri, 02/12/2016 - 10:09
I wanted to take the time to tell you a story...I have been a dealer for Bergeron for about three years..and they have been excellent in service and customer information. I can call anytime and talk to Phil or Brian and they give me any info I ask for...each time I see Phil at an event he gives me many t-shirts to give to my clientele...

So here's my story...most of you have been following my brothers build on his father/son project Stevens resto..I sent the Hallcraft v-drive off several months ago and Bergeron worked it over top to bottom...it needed everything..(age)..So Speedboat gets it installed and fill with fluid. Over several weeks it was apparent it wasn't sealing..oil coming out the bottom of the unit..Called Brian yesterday..told him about it. Get an overnight package from then with new gaskets and a certain sealer they want Ron to use..PERFECT SERVICE.

I hear things about Bergeron..."prices too high"..."Phil's grumpy"...but I've been around this business most of my life...and I have been to Bergeron in Mesa three times..and I've never seen a more organized machine then this place..they have it all..

Wtb gaffrig fuel level gauge

Fri, 02/12/2016 - 07:14
I'm looking for a gaffrig 5502 fuel level gauge to match what's in the boat. Prior owner put a hole in the dash for some reason. Gaffrig has recently switched this to a full face gauge and they don't have any stock left on the half face version. I've looked high and low without much luck. Any ideas? Attached Thumbnails
