More Speed for Our LS-Swapped Jet Boat!

On Episode 153 of Finnegan's Garage, Mike Finnegan and David Newbern search for more speed out of their LS-Swapped jet boat. The 1976 Rogers Bonneville TR fiberglass jet boat is powered by an LS6 engine with Mast Motorsports cylinder heads, a Holley Hi-Ram tunnel ram, and dual Holley double pumper carburetors. The quest for more speed came from making adjustments to the jet drive hardware. The guys also repaired the trailer, which needed a dozen holes drilled in it and six u-bolts added to it for strength. Of course they did the work right there at the local launch ramp.

Can we all just acknowledge that Mike is the Swiss Army knife of mechanics/ drivers! He works on boats, cars, trucks, and trailers. He’s a hella of a drag racers on asphalt and water, and he can ride a stand up jet ski like a boss

why are there no other boats on that lake? you doing this early in the morning. I like speed but this open header v8 jet boat stuff has been done done done.How about you build a fast boat that is Quiet so everyone on the Lake doesn't have to hear it. What I am saying is be respectful of the rest of the boaters.It's not all about you or do you own that lake?

So. Did you clean up your drill shavings or leave them there to get jabbed into someone else’s bare feet? That boat looks good running across the water. 74 is a pretty good clip for a boat. And it accelerates guide quickly too.

Use a 2x4 a few feet long and a block to make a lever to push up on the drill. While laying down, use your leg to push down on the end of the 2x4 while your hands hold the drill. Makes that job 100x easier. BTW, add bell mouth intakes to Game Over's turbos! Nothing on the intakes is costing you flow.

@Danny S damn, 62 is enough for me especially since the boat was only $500. I just rebuild both engines for peace of mind(kit was only $150 ea) and now I’m about to do the jet drives($50 ea). One day I’ll throw two ecotec 4cylinders in there since a running Chevy cobalt is only $500 and I have the tuning software for those engines. Going fast is fun but I’d like to do some endurance trips
Danny S
Danny S 29 dager siden
See how much it costs for every 10mph on the water. Your 62 stock will take another 15-20k to get it to 72
