I'm sticking with a 20, just getting rid of the triple ram and going single. This poor boat has taken years of abuse with little to no maintenance so it's time to give it some loving.

Hell I'm coming down for some heat, it's been butt *** cold this winter and with a fresh 4" of snow I'm ready to get out of this ice box.

I'm having second thoughts on swapping mid sections being I will only have one day to break in a motor and test. I would hate to have a problem after driving over 1200 miles. There will still be enough changes to keep me busy though.

Well we made it down here and got to meet up with Cody. His vector looks just as good in person as it does in pictures, great job man! I was having problems with my ecu so he pulled his off and let me use it to be sure it was my box that was bad, then offered to let me use it for the race tomorrow. I can't say enough about the warm welcome I've had down hear great people for sure!

After spending 2 days trying to get this to run it was running fairly good so I sprayed it. She backfired and broke a reed cage something that I've never seen before. Someone brought me a cage and now I think I'm ready for tomorrow. I surely hope to spank some allisons but these guys brought their a game for sure.

And that really sucks about that guys alison burning up. I seen the pictures you posted of it.
