Jet boat, 2011 5.0, and HID's

Hey, guys. I haven't been on here for a while, but I have good reason for it. The past few months have been busy with new projects to work on. First off, I've been workin on building a shop in my barn with a 2 post lift. Still waiting on cement, but it's getting close to being done. Next, I just bought a 73 Sidewinder Jet boat with a Oldsmobile 455 Big Block and I'm hoping to get it done before it's too cold to even use it.

I tore apart the engine and found out it has been bored .30 over with aluminum roller rockers, aftermarket cam, edelbrock torker intake, 650 Holley carb, high flow oil pump, Mallory distributor and electric fuel pump, and Moroso valve covers. Needless to say, this thing is going to haul lol.

don't suppose anyone's put one of those 5.0's in a ranger? All I know is those 5.0 emblems would look good on my truck....

so that boat, it's a jet drive, just like a jet ski?

Pretty sure noone has a new 5.0 in a Ranger yet seeing as how they've only been out for about a month.
Yes, it's jet driven and hopefully very fast and loud lol

I think they are called BW2 side skirts from Ground Dynamics, but I modified them to have my custom side exhaust go through. I always wanted the Roush side exhaust, but nobody makes a kit for the fox mustangs so I made my own.

Brian, I’m just finishing up building a boat from the ground up (28 foot all aluminum) with an olds 455 with a berkely jet drive. We bored ours out .030 over with the torker intake, 700 Holley, mild race cam. All I have to say with that engine is BE CAREFUL with the high flow oil pump. The biggest problem with those engines is that it will suck up too much oil in the top end and dry out the oil pan. We left the stock one in there and added an extension to the oil pan (total 11 quarts now) so that it will never be thirsty. Make sure when you’re running @ high rpms that you watch your oil pressure gauge. Other than that, the engine is solid and is extremely torquey (sp?)

Good Luck!!!

Thanks Rudy, I will definately keep an eye on that. It does have a bigger oil pan and oil return lines from the heads to the oil pan so hopefully that will help too

LOL good luck controlling the truck whenever you go past half throttle.

the new 5.0 is way faster, but we haven't run side by side yet. My dad's been working 10 hour days now and hasn't had time. I'll let ya know when we do tho. I've been itching to try it.
