Getting close!!! fuel system is done...walbro pump down low feed from a sump so I don't need to use a lift pump. 100 micron filter before the pump then a 10 micron filter/water sep. after the pump. After the fuel rails I have a aeromotive bypass regulator to return fuel to the top of the tank

This is a really cool build. Will definitely be a great running boat. So what upgrades did you do to the LS? What are the cam specs? Did you stroke it?

the motor is a 6.0 with LS 3 heads stock crank and rods with forged pistons 5 thousands over 10.8 compression. roller cam with .560 lift and don't remember the rest of cam spec's, but have paper work somewhere. New lifters pushrods and rockers, it's a mild set-up hopefully around 500 HP. After riding a DD carmotor for years I will be happy even if it is 400 HP... :lol:

Sounds like a really nice motor. You need to hurry up and finish the boat so you can change your signature. 8)
