    LooseBoltsRob's Bullet Marine Carbon Fiber GPRSHO Build

    So this is a little overdue and most progress has been documented with the help of Vspec1 in the DCC Motorsports Projects thread but this ski deserves its own build page. This is a sister boat to Duke's Bullet Marine carbon fiber GPRXP that is his unlimited drag ski. It's essentially the LB Motorsports opposite. Since Duke and I work together with our businesses (he does the work, I supply the parts), it seemed fitting to have sister drag skis. By opposites, they are more or less cosmetically the same but the "LB Motorsports.com" and "DCC Motorsports.com" graphics will be reversed...larger "LB" down below the bond line on the side of lower deck and smaller "DCC" up where reg numbers normally go on the bow. The ski has been a slow moving project until recently due to lots of business on both our parts. Thanks to massive support from Patrick (Vspec1) and Big John, this ski is finally nearing completion with the parts it deserves to be a silly fast river boat, competitive unlimited drag boat, and be pushing the drool factor just sitting on the trailer. I don't think it'll be ready to race, at least competitively, by March 2nd, but with a little luck, it'll at least be on the water getting dialed in. By the 2nd or 3rd roud, it'll be good to go and ready to compete, with supercharged boost only...we don't need no stinkin' turbos or nitrous

    So I'll throw some build photos from the beginning up till current, many of which you have already seen in the DCC Motorsports Projects page, but at least it'll bring this thread up to speed and be complete.

    We are missing some of the "before" photos unfortunately where it was the sad ugly duckling that was one of those diamonds in the rough sort of "finds". Here are some of the earliest shots we have...

    Bottom deck painted and some early cleaning up of the inside. Sadly enough, from the time Carlos (Game Over) sold the ski to the time we bought it, the mounts were hacked up for a 4TEC, and done improperly, so we had to rebuild the mounts.

    Our LB Motorsports race intercooler with proposed mounting location and new FZR fuel tank. Also repairs we had to make to the mounts in the hull to undo the 4TEC clearance hacks.

    Bored stock throttle body to 60mm, fuel pump sending unit mods (-6 AN feed and return lines, Walbro 255 lph fuel pump), and oil pan mods to increase capacity and improve oil starvation issues found on the dual oil pump 08-11 motors.
