|What can I do to get more torque out of a 3.0L engine without changing the prop or advancing the timing??|
|Sell it and buy an X-2.|
|ummm ok ...always the comedian|
|why wouldnt you want to change the prop? thats your answer.|
|cb, my first boat had a 3.0 and was a real dog. I put a 4 blade stainless on it and it kicked it up about 8-10 mph. yours could do the same or better depending on what boat.|
Is your boat the Jet in your profile? If yes, you best bet is probably a custom trimmed impeller. Another option may be a whipple-supercharger but that's going to be much more work.
|the prop on it has already been pitched down to 15 and top end at the moment is about 32mph. Ralph was just taking the piss as he knows I am going to sell it as an X2 arrives in the country tomorrow |
I was wanting a cheap fix really and a four blade Stainless at the right pitch would be over 1000 New Zealand Dollars
Mike its not the boat in my profile ..its a 92 bayliner with a 3.0 l mercruiser.
and the boat in my profile is a Direct Drive Skicraft Senator (aussie boat) that part at the back which made you think it was a jet is actually the exhaust..but many people previously have thought the same thing
