Democrats

Wed, 06/14/2017 - 14:01
All the violence we're facing in America has been perpetrated or orchestrated by the Democrat Party and liberal media and intentional lies. PERIOD.

Kathy Griffith holding a severed head of our president.
Obama endorsing Lies over and over about law enforcement

Obama releasing 6000 drug offenders inspiring the biggest drug overdose epidemic in American history.

Black lives matter racist hate group endorsed by the Democrats and invited to their political conventions.

Paid violent protests Ferguson, Baltimore, Berkeley, all by Democrats sponsors.

Democrats have no plan to improve American lives, leading by hatred, racism and division only.

Congressmen Shot

Wed, 06/14/2017 - 06:43
Congressmen and others shot while practicing for a charity baseball game. :( Alleged shooter asked if players on field were Democrats or Republicans prior to opening fire.
The Democrats and the Leftist MSM "OWN" this! Their hatred and call for resistance on a daily basis is like lighter fluid that ignites actions like this. It will be interesting to see how the Democrats and MSM respond to this.

Intake help for Ford 460 with banks twin turbo kit

Tue, 06/13/2017 - 21:49
I am in the process of putting the engine back together for my 77 hallett mini day cruiser jet boat. It had a 460 Hardin marine/Gale banks turbo package. It was the typical all iron 460 with the Cobra jet style intake with regular port d3ve heads like most were. I want to upgrade to an aluminum intake. New engine is a 9to1 with slightly worked d3ve heads, comp cams jet boat cam. That's about it for the engine. I just don't want to put that heavy intake back on, and want to build a little extra power if I can. The banks turbo kit is the stage 1 with single carb, small intercooler, and only about 5lbs of boost. What are your guys recommendations?

Vic Edelbrock has passed

Mon, 06/12/2017 - 20:24
Vic Edelbrock, son of Vic Edelbrock Sr., namesake and driving force behind the famous Intake manifolds that started the company, and grew into a most major player in the High Performance world, sadly has passed. I was just informed today. Darned near anyone who ever turned a wrench on an engine, has used, or is using something of Edelbrock's. If you ever get a chance to read the book : "Edelbrock, Made In America", do so. I am saddened by the loss of another great of our times. Rest well Vic.

lightning headers MOVED FOR RIVER JEFF

Lightning Headers 2" Primaries Fully Jacketed PowdercoatedFor sale is a pair of Lightning Headers they are the 2" primary fully water jacketed freshwater lowport big block chevy with optional powdercoated a nice metallic silver and oxygen sensor. I bought these with 1 hour and I put on 2 hours. They are an excellent header for big block power applications that can handle big cubic inches. The jacketed design keeps water away from the heads dumping out after the turn down to combat reversion. These headers are in like new condition, the headers themselves are scratch free, there are scratches on the cornectors under the exhaust tubing from removing the tubing. The package comes with everything to install except header bolts and heater hose. MSRP is $2,875 I am asking $2,425.

Below is from the manufacturer: boat headers,marine exhaust,lightning headers,boat exhaust


Our Low Port fresh water header incorporates a 2" primary tube (1 7/8" I.D.) The 2" primary tube header has been Dyno tested with our 632 cubic inch Chevy test engine with outstanding results. For more info click here. This Header usually replaces Merc exhaust where their is a "S" bend or 2 90deg elbows after the manifold. The Header can also be used for other boats where the engine is very close to the transom and the exhaust port height is near crankshaft centerline. The header points down 75 to 90 degrees. This Header usually exits below the water line so reversion should be considered. Keep in mind, when exhaust tips are below the water line, the header can literally pull water up from outside the boat.
Camshaft selection is very important to guard against reversion. Lightning has many camshaft and lifter options from mild to wild. We also have dry tail pipe extensions that can eliminate reversion completely.
The standard Header comes with a black powder coat finish; optional colors available. The headers come complete with water supply manifold, gaskets, bolts, pet cocks, water feed hose and clamps
