    Please stop perpetuating this myth from the late ’70s that really was mostly due to crappy hull design. Precisely the same physical laws (Newton’s laws of motion) apply to prop or jet propulsion.

    Wow, so you converted a car engine to a boat engine? Brutal!

    Looks Great to Me!
    I’d like to do a Diesel speed boat so I could run it on WVO the same as my car and be able to take the thing out as often as I wanted without having to worry a bit about the cost of the fuel for the thing.

    That revs out nicely by the sound of things. We’ve got a 16ft glastron with a perkins 2L turbo diesel coupled to a bmw stern drive… Nice to see another home brew marinising job!

    loud and smelly. thats all i have to say

    Very good. Did you have to mess with impeller or nozzle sizes or just get lucky that everything happened to work out right?

    yes, just the way it should be.

    for a boat that planes out, that fuel burn must be near nothing.

    Typical white trash woman…loud and smelly!

    Intercooler with air or water? Having any problems with engine cooling?
    I also have a car diesel engine in my boat with a watercooled intercooler, very efficent! Had som problems with engine temp but after using a bigger seawaterpump (from Volvo V8 (GM) marine engine) it works just fine. Fuel economy is unbelivable!
    Engine i use is a Isuzu 3.0 v6 common rail with VNT-turbo. Same engine used in SAAB 9-5 3.0 TID. With a Volvo Penta sterndrive (VP280SP)

    thats pretty cool

  23. Busdude97 April 4, 2010 at 10:40 pm #

    Sounds like a detroit 8v71.

  24. kimmer6 June 22, 2010 at 3:22 pm #

    @lakewood85 Yeah, but they have no teeth to ruin the moment. And to get rid of her in the morning, you put a half full bottle of Scotch on the porch and lock the door once she’s out.

    this is the best demonstration of what a boat should be doing on water. Thanks:)
