    Questions about marine stuff and turbo style heat exchanger

    So Ive been bouncing around the idea of finding an old i/o penta boat and turbo a b230 or b234 and drop it in with a nice air to water intercooler and what not. The boats Ive seen are b18/20's. So my question is how do these heat exchangers work with a turbo setup? Is it possible? I get the...

    Fun with a b230 intake.....

    So I got a manifold off one of TB guys and it was made up for the smaller 850 throttle body. I had a 960 throttle that wanted to fit so I hogged out the adapter and welded extensions on the sides to make sure there was material to cut away. This is the result. Along with the throttle body I cut...

    Is a thermostat controlled oil cooler sandwich required?

    Bought a universal sandwich oil cooler adapter. I know in most stock applications these adapters or blocks have a thermostat bypass to cut off the flow to the oil cooler radiator and circulate closed loop in the engine only. Does anyone run a non thermostat oil cooler setup? Thx

    From with MDF and a 242.

    So this idea started with to many overhaulin episodes watched. I planned on making the higher point of the trunk a flat piece of mdf with some black carpet. I had a total turbobricked sub box that worked but was less than a cubic foot of air space with a 12" sub. The plan was to make this back...

    b23 and b230 ideas

    So Im building a b23 using the orig crank but going to try the b230 turbo pistons. So my question is with the b23 the rods are shorter and the pistons are taller compared to the b230. So can I get the rsi 154mm rods and run the b230 pistons in my b23 block without increasing the deck height to...

    240 240 alternator relocate and delete A/C

    has anyone ran the alternator in the position of the A/C pump? so my idea is running the 2 belt configuration to the alternator and one single belt up to the P/S pump, i believe they make a kit for the single belt to p/s to bypass the a/c.

    amm lh 2.0 and 2.2 compatibility

    so after finding my original setup was lh 2.0 with chrysler ignition ive tried a few combinations of amm and ecus. what ive found is the stock harness of a 242 83' with lh 2.0 will plug into a 2.2 ecu without much change but only if you stick with the 002 lh 2.0 amm. theres differences in the...

    LH 3.1 Downgrade to 2.4

    As some of you might have a 90 to 92 240 series 5 speed. You are stuck with the Lh 3.1 which limits alot of your options on turbo upgrades. Sure, a simple ecu reprogram might do the trick but could in the long run be more hassle. I stumbled on the information to do this swap and just wanted to...
