Thread: Strok-Her 496 :: 1987 Eagle Eagle

  1. General Information
    Strok-Her 496
    1987
    Eagle
    Eagle
    Black
    fully loaded

    Boat was given to me by my father and has sentimental value. It has been sitting in storage for about 10years till i was able to come up with the extra cash to restore the boat. I restored the boat this last summer 2015 and I think it turned out really nice. The boat originally had a 454 chevy in it with little upgrades and a panther impellar. I have upgraded the motor to a 496 and the pump to a Xlerator from Tom at jet performance. I was not able to get all the troubleshooting completed before summer ended this year but i am looking forward to getting it all dialed in this coming summer if we have water. Hope you all like

    What a beautiful boat! I do have one question, do the headers sufficiently drown out the "slow the #% down" requests from your significant other? The boat I have currently has an outboard and it's impossible to silence that "alarm" without putting her ashore...
