Acme Props - 1-888-661-Acme

I just tried one of their 15" props and it is outstanding.
Try as many cup sizes as you can, that's my motto.

I'm happy with anything at or above the double D range.

Fuel system is near completion. We modified the OE sending unit and pick up, it turned out pretty cool and should work very well submerged in diesel. The tried, true, and popular Airdog DF-165 fuel system has been mounted and plumbed.

Exhaust system finished up today. Chris with Alpine design put the TIG welder in overdrive. Got the exhaust and inter cooler pipes finished up. We will be using the factory exhaust ports with this stainless masterpiece.

Shes alive: :thumb Here is a quick link. Electrical is not finished and there is still plenty to do. This is a milestone for this project and we are very excited to hit the water.

That put a smile on my face! Couldn't imagine what it'll sound like going down the lake!

Pretty sure it is going to be very quiet on the water. Its quite a bit quieter than the 8.1 gasser that came out.

All In all has this been that difficult? Say like much more difficult than swapping a gas truck to a diesel?

P.s. I love how it sounds!!
