    LS1 powered ski

    lol. Seems like the guy was rightfully scared. Way too much weight and not enough power from an LS1. I'd go for a 2l turbo import engine

    Frank Zapata used to install the hartly v8s in his race boats. 2.8 3.0 or 3.4l v8s based on the hayabusa.

    All that thing did was make a lot of noise.

    Waste of time and money, and it didn't even look that fun. Maybe he was just on test mode and never opened it up, but you'd have to have some serious impeller tuning to make the best use of that engine. It's an ls1 limit out around 6k..kind of low for a ski motor, wonder what gear ratio he went with. Lord knows that hull bounced around like a son of a bitch, even I felt that bumps when I was watching it.

    Saw this posted over on LS1Tech.com. Didn't look fun at all.

    Seriously though, not enough power from an LS1? Ha. Also, they can safely spin higher than 6000 rpm, even in stock form. I spun my bolt-ons, cam, 2000 SS to 6500 on the regular. I spin my stock bottom end 6.0l LQ4 in my turbo Z28 to 6400 and it made over 675 rwhp. Had a buddy who spun his H/C/I n2o LS1 in his 280Z to 7200. There is a reason everyone puts them in anything and everything.

    Oh yeah man , i love the ls1 motor. i know it can wind up past 6k stock, but i was speaking in relative terms. Do you really think he wanted to go that far on the water? i dont know. It just looked bouncy. I could think of a few other better things i put a ls1. Back when i used to modify cars i had a bunch of 240sx's and was going to do an ls1 swap in one. In fact, it will happen one of these years, i just need to have a an extra 10k in my pocket and a fleet of 10 skis already paid for on my docks...
