This isn't actually for a mustang, it's for a ski boat. I replaced the GT40 heads with GT40p's, also dropped a cam (small lift/495), roller lifters, rockers and flat top pistons in it. Heads have also been shaved 0.0020.

I need advice from you 351W guru's on what intake will be best for throttle responce, holding power/torque, and perform best at 2,500-3,500 RPMs. The new carb I have for it is a 4160 holley 650.

Thanks in advance!

im not 100% sure, but ive been told that it helps with low end torque, same as longer intake runners on an efi intake.


im more partial to quagmire....gotta take that cross-cuntry wannabango rv trip. lmao

Definitely looking for the lowend torque!

I had to quit watching the show cause I had a 6 year old girl running around going "giggity giggity" and repeating some of the stuff he was saying!

As of right now the factory risers. I had the machine shop flow test them, they checked out as good as a set of 12" shorties. But I'd like to use something alittle better.

who do you get to ski behind this thing? :rollgrin: the performer would be perfect. i don't think a SPACER will make much difference, but you might want a heat shield/thick gasket to help keep the carb cooler. :bigthumbsup

i agree cindy, the spacer wouldnt be significant, but they are cheap, and do make a difference

this has gotten me back on the prowl for a boat. i have a 8yr old 26ft pontoon, but now i want a ski boat again.

Pontoon boats or house boats go hand-n-hand with ski boats! Cause a ski boat really isn't made to haul people for a day of partying!

Here is the project boat at hand. A couple of before and after pics!

The boat is a 1993 MasterCraft ProStar 190.

looks nice.

my pontoon isnt exactly stock. redid the floor, got rid of the roof and built a half-roof, new seats, sound system....2 mercury outboards instead of a single. fishing pole hangers, mini fod up table from an RV and a ladder to the roof (people get a tan on the roof)
also have tie-offs on the side for the jetski

taylorsville lake and rough river are nice party-spots...its nice to spend the whole day at the lake with friends. good stuff

anywho, im looking into a boat now for skiing, rafting, and so-on. what do you recommend?

the kind of skiing with skiis on your feet, and tubing... a few of my buddies are doing tricks and wakeboarding now, so ill take that into consideration

im in the process of selling my pontoon to a friend, and trying to pick up a 2009 avalon sandbar 26ft pontoon with hard roof. (estate sale next week)

i also picked up a pair of 2007 ultra 250x kawasaki jet-skis at a repo auction.(hella cheap)..im using one of them as the "ski boat" right now

given those purchases, and the car projects...im very limited on funds for a ski-boat.

i could easily get a fixer-upper like you did though...how much did that mastercraft run you?


edit......1999 19ft 7pass stingray...$9,500...that a reasonable price?

Ha Ha I wasn't sure if you were into barefooting, Slalom, wakesurfing, ect...

When I bought this boat I got it for $3,000 got about $7,000 in the restore currently, and I will have NO problem getting all that back out of it. I could have cut that cost down alot if I would have went back all stock with everything. I already have buyers for this boat when its done if my brother and I don't keep it.

Without digging and looking, that sounds like alot for that type of boat. Runabouts don't hold value very well.

i think ill stick to using the jet ski for now. use the extra income to get another mustang, or get the 88 running.

i looked online, and most of the stingrays this size and year are a few grand more...i thought that this one was a find. im not too concerned with resale value, but dont want something that will be worthless if i HAVE to sell later down the road

my stepdad has an old bayliner..i could get that dirt cheap, but it needs ALOT of work

It's all about what toy you want to spend the most money on!
