Mud motor mods

Postby Ctriviere » Mon Sep 09, 2013 4:38 pm

I just bought a copperhead 23 hp vanguard mud motor. I'm looking to give it a little extra hp. Any suggestions or things I can add to the motor to do this?

mudmotortalk.com is full of ideas on mods for a mud motor.

How's that Copperhead 23 run stock now?

It hasn't come in yet but it is supposed to run at around 25 plus. (With two people)

Headwork and free flowing exhaust really wakes them up.

if you want cheap easy power. port polish heads, port intake, mild cam($60), thin head gaskets($40?), timing advance key($15), gut your stock exhaust or build a custom one. a recipe as such will give you a few extra ponies and more top end revs

backwaterperformancesystems.com

You will just have to see what's available for your motor. I'd start with the bolt on applications and go from there. It's insane the HP and torque gained from these mods. I mod'd my motor this spring/summer and can barely hold the handle becasue it has some crazy torque now. It flat out hauls at 5500ft elevation. I just hope the internals hold up. I highly reccomend the mods.

you can get the thin head gaskets and timing advance key from cartpartsplus.com. and i believe eccarburetors.com has the mild cam still. also if you want to go nuts, eccarburetor has some beefed up 2bbls for 300 bucks. when ur on their website go to precision mower parts, then mower engines to find vanguard parts. as for the exhaust, just take urs apart and remove the baffling. these are the upgrades i do to all my engines. they are relatively cheap and easy. you could go crazy amd get a high lift cam, but then you need a rev kit and a high torque starter. those three are going to end up costing 600+ bucks. not worth it to me...

I am not sure why you keep bumping your thread. Your original question has been answered several times. If you have a specific question, post it up instead of just typing bump.
