    SDBA Drag Racing GPR Project

    I am in the process of building a drag racing personal watercraft for Southern Drag Boat Association competition. I am building a 1500 hp ecotec 2.2l engine. The racing block is comming from Bates Engineering. The crank from Sonny Bryant and the head is going to Chapman. The rods from GRP and Pistons from JE. The turbo is a Garrett 4718R dual ball barring with 50 to 60 lbs of boost. The ECM will be the Big Stuff 3. It will be using 2 each 212 lb DEKA injectors per cylinder. It will be running alcohol. A skag is being installed where the scoop grate use to be and the strut is being incorporated into the plate that was on the bottom of the pump. This will be using a prop and shaft instead of a pump.The special fabrication will be done by Tony at T-Fab custom fabrication. The paint will be accomplished by the 2 Brothers Motorcycle Painting. I am not sure if a wing on the back will be necessary until I test it at speed. I am hoping for 7 sec quarter mile with this project. Pictures will follow.

    Now here is a viable project, a 1500hp sausage slicer.
    Good luck on the build.

    there is no way a ski like this will stay upright , going straight. If this isnt BS get your life insurance up to date.
