:D I like power, and I really like Gen IV GM small blocks. The 6.2 is the only Gen IV in the lineup.....

Tossed around the idea of a power tower for a while, and then decided the money would be better spent on enlarging the garage!! It cost me around 7k (did the labor myself with a lot of help from friends!)to lift my garage from an 8' ceiling to 14' with an 11'hx16'w overhead door.....No need to fold the tower anymore!

Scott-
I have some of the process, Should have it finished by next weekend. I still have to paint the inside of the addition, and there is a some siding to finish still. I ended up doing an addition on it as well, which added 4-5k on to the budget, but it will be well worth it, and skipping the power tower paid for 65% of the whole project....


Lifting Day- The snow was killing us that weekend! The wind picked up that day as well. We were all pretty quiet till the walls were back in...:D. It is about 3/4 of the way up in this pic. You can see the old walls in the back, which gives you an idea of old height.... The old walls were only 8' tall.

Lifted and walls back in. Was going to throw siding and the door on it, but then decided I wanted to go bigger.....

This was two weeks ago.... It is actually almost finished now but I didnt get any photos from last weekend. Quite the undertaking! I stepped the roof down for the addition in the front, which makes the building not look so rediculously tall...

Nice boat. What kind of top speed do you get with the 6.2L Ilmor engine?

Looks like nice wake/nice ramp. Great angle.....Water looks like oil though--is that just a reflection or dirty water??

Dirty water. It clears up by mid june. Plus this water was used for 100 years for the jewelry business. We try not to drink it...

ShawnB,

We got the Plug and play but haven't hooked it up yet due to some missing parts (they are on a truck somewhere). With the stock ballast it's had no trouble at all getting on plane. Everything is so smooth. The real test will be when it's full of people and the extra ballast is in. Also haven't tried surfing yet but plan to next week
