    Re: Waveblaster 1 with Turbocharged Spark Engine

    A little to update. Got another Spark engine in a couple days ago. I've been letting the motor mounts glue dry and the ski was at my dads where I did the motor mount work over the weekend so I brought it home yesterday afternoon.

    •The Spark gas tank fits up front pretty good and I may be able to get the gas fill on the tank to hookup to the gas cap on the blaster. Won't find out for sure until I grind down the oem tank mounts up front and then slide the tank in reversed.
    •Decided on final turbo placement as I had a couple of options but I think this is the best route for weight distribution and how I'll be able to route piping to/from the turbo. The stock spark waterbox pictured is not the waterbox I'll be using... I'm actually still debating on using a waterbox but if I decide to use one, I have a couple ideas on how to connect to it where water wont be coming back towards the turbo.
    •I knew from initial fitup that the corner of the intake manifold didn't fit but with engine in, I checked again and yep.... still doesn't fit. Just wanted to make sure before making my own intake manifold.

    Seeing these 3 spark engines with 3 blasters in the garage had me thinkin..... hmmm. Anyway, next up is cutting out the oem tank brackets & waterbox brackets and then fiberglassing the motor mounts in and adding some glass to the pump tunnel. I'm ordering a bunch of materials I need to get a good start on the turbo piping. I am a maintenance turnaround scheduler by trade so I made a real simple checklist with durations by activity to help me not fall behind from forgetting about something. I plan to update this and add to it as I go and figured it could be a help to others ever wanting to tackle a project like this.

    Re: Waveblaster 1 with Turbocharged Spark Engine

    wow this is awesome thx for sharing..... !!!

    When you split the hull where and how do u start to get such a clean split ....?

    Will u be utilizing SMC plate replacement in sections where the new Motor mounts are mounted or just glassed directly to bottom of Hull ?

    How are you getting these spark motors? I figured if I ever wanted to do this I would have to buy a donor spark.

    Bought a complete spark to get one, 2 complete engines with electronics driveshaft etc from part outs and I got 1 complete shortblock with a hole in it for pretty cheap. If you have the time, wait it out until a complete engine pops up for a low price or you could buy a brand new 60hp model spark for <5k at most dealerships. Sell the hull, pump, seat, etc and you'd probably be in the new powerplant for around 2500. Good thing about the 60hp model is that you don't have the ibr to delete off the ecu or wiring harness and you'd be reflashing a 90hp anyways.

    Re: Waveblaster 1 with Turbocharged Spark Engine

    Got the gas tank & waterbox brackets grinded down smooth. Glassed in the mounts but still need to put 1 more layer on the front and rear sides. All turbo piping, fittings and hoses ordered... just waiting for it to come in. While waiting, I can still grind the glue down where the hull was seperated and start working on making the base of the aluminum intake manifold.

    Re: Waveblaster 1 with Turbocharged Spark Engine

    Just been waiting on parts to come in this last week. Rest of the flanges and fittings should be in next week. Leaving for a trip to Colorado tomorrow so I probably won't be jumping back on this until next weekend. I did shave the stock gas tank/waterbox brackets off and set the spark tank in. The tank contours the hull really good and I should be able to put together some silicone piping to run from stock blaster fill location to the tank.

    Re: Waveblaster 1 with Turbocharged Spark Engine

    so are you ultimately going to ditch the closed loop cooling system for an open loop?
