After nearly six years of construction, my 19-foot long Placecraft jet boat is ready to rip the water. In this video we finish fabricating, wiring and plumbing the 711 cubic inch Sonny Leonard Racing Engines twin-turbo Hemi and it roars to life. We also drop this brand new boat into the water to see if it's floats. This video also gives you tips on building battery cables, fabricating aluminum parts and how I used compressed Co2 aka Carbon Dioxide to control the Precision turbocharger wastegates as well as the shifter and Place Diverter adjustable jet drive nozzle.
As much as I'd like to make a fast pass in Game Over there is still a lot of tuning to do before this boat is safe. The engine has not been Dyno-tuned and we'll likely do that ourselves by driving the boat and making changes as we go. That takes time so bear with us as we take baby steps towards finishing this insane pleasure boat project.
Special thanks to the companies who build such great products that brought this project to life:
-We wired the boat front to back using nothing but products from Wirecare.com
-Holley.com provided the complete Dominator efi system including a touch screen, 160 lb/hr injectors (We will probably change those our for 220s), and data acquisition sensors.
-Stainlessheaders.com provided the hard parts we used to build our custom turbo headers.
-Precision Turbos build the custom turbos, intercooler, blowoff valve and waste gates
-B1 Racing build the custom jet drive
-Sonny's Racing Engines built the Hemi using parts from Brodix, Sonny Bryant, Carrillo, CP Pistons, Total Seal rings, T&D Rockers, Bullet Racing Camshafts, Accufab throttle body, MSD Ignition, etc
-Peterson Boat Specialties and Advantage Custom Boats created the fiberglass boat hull
-Chastin Brand lettered the hull
-Earle's Performance Plumbing provided the hoses and fittings
-Race Part Solutions provided all of the mandrel bent tubing and connectors for the cold side of the turbo system
-Odyssey provided the lightweight battery
Stay tuned for more videos about this awesome project as we explore the limits of this jet boat and my intestinal fortitude to drive it.
