    My plan was to hit the river here and stretch her out for a few hours but we have some severe thunderstorms moving through and the river is rising and getting trashy. I am sitting here looking for a reasonably close lake that will be big enough to do some running on.

    Not a whole lot of port work to be honest, rod slots, exhaust ports were raised slightly and chamfered a bit, the opening where the exhaust leaves the block was opened up about 3/4" so the opening is now rectangle instead of a little square. I think that is how the ProMax is? I had to open up the exhaust plate to match the gasket and I used a ProMax gasket. Cylinders were all bored .015 with new Vertex pistons and I went with steel cage bearings this time. Front half is shaved .050 and I stuffed the crap out of anything I could. The deck surfaces were touched just enough to ensure a smooth flat surface and to match side to side. Heads were cut to 33cc. I think that sums it up, at least that's about all I can think of at the moment.

    Thanks. I run a 1977 Cobra bass boat that I polished up and made pretty. I wish I had a better boat to play with but in the end it's just an old bass boat that I fish from more than anything else so I didn't want to go wild with the porting and lose the bottom end. My boat is a kevlar layup, which I understand is a tiny bit lighter than fiberglass, but fully loaded with fuel and all my gear my boat is in the 1650-1700lb range witch is light for a bass boat but way heavy compared to those 7-900lb beauties most you guys fly. One day I'll have an XB-2002 and maybe even a Hydrostream of some sort and then I'll have a nice poppin and cracklin high rpm beast to play with.

    Thank you. I talked with James Perry a little this morning and he told me that he did add some heavier chamfer to the exhaust ports, he touched them very lightly when he machined everything the first time.
