    Thumbs up Dyoungs Winter Mods Project

    This is going to be my winter project thread. I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions along the way and plenty of pics to post so I figured I'd keep it all in one spot.. I wasn't sure if this needs to be here or in the projects section so if this needs to be moved over there, go ahead..I'll be pulling my engine this weekend so the hull can be flipped and the bottom properly trued and the entire hull repainted. I had a little mishap earlier this season with a cypress knee that was about six inches under the water. The repair to the ski was done well but when the area was resprayed the dude got overspray everywhere and it looks like s**t.The head will be ported and polished, ferrea valves ,lightweight springs and retainers will be installed...Adding the Riva ecu, 50's,Ocman's "Eric" old x-charger and a 15/22. PPG is modding the pump by smoothing out all the imperfections in the veins.I'm installing Danny's custom hybrid stockrunner/aluminum intake and I'm going to try Ross Nemos throttle body mod...Hopefully in a few months I'll have a somewhat "reliable" beast on my hands. I'm really looking forward to this and like I said before will probably have alot of questions so I appreciate in advance the help this forum will bring..


    Thanks, Damon

    Cool..I appreciate it...I'll be hitting you up for one of your motor mounts in the near future.........how do I move it to the projects forum? or does a moderator have to do it?

    How much is that costing you. What kinds of gains do you expect to see?

    It runs between $200 to $250 depending on the amount of material they remove from the pump...According to Glen at PPG it makes the pump more efficient and reduces cavitation by making everything smooth. I might add that they're pulling the pump apart checking all the seals and bearings and repacking with grease....As far as the gains go he said a half mile an hour gain with the best gains being holeshot.....It could be b.s......I don't know, going to give it a try......when all is said and done I'll use my buds stock pump for a back to back test and post up the differences if there are any....

    I didn't get a chance to pull the engine this weekend but I have some questions for when I do....
    #1 the engine only has 83 hours do I need to split the cases and check everything?

    #2 I'm probably overthinking this but I'm wondering about setting the timing when the head gets back from the machine shop...I'm going to change the timing chain ,add the rr camshaft sprocket, rr camchain tensioner and install a ppg cam...I read on here that you want the #3 cylinder at tdc then mark your camshaftsprocket so you can reinstall in the same position.....but as I stated earlier new cam ,timing chain,blah blah blah.....any pointers on this.....sorry for dumb questions...learning from you guys as I go

    a couple ?'s

    #1. can I leave the fuel tank in the ski "empty of course" when I flip the hull or does it need to be removed?

    #2. Is it ok to put dielectric grease on the A & B ecu connectors and pins?
