    Ok... since nobody else will take this one....

    All things being equal I would expect 65mph.

    These 383's Should Have About 490 To 500 Lbs Of Torque And About 470 Hp.

    My trailer manufacture has a 260 w/ 383's pushing around 500 h/p ea and he gets mid 80's so he said. No K-tabs either.

    In my opinion 383's are the ONLY way to go if your sticking with v8's for power.

    I've decided to go with one Lycoming T53 turbine going thru a custom gearbox to run two TRS's for my 260. 1400 h/p 1/2 the weight. Hmmmmm

    yep . . the turbine would be a pretty good way to go. god knows there is enough room. i love the size of the engine compartment in my 260.

    mid 80's with no tabs not sure i'd wanna go that fast in mine. i mean its a great boat but the hull is a bit speed limited. mine porpoises like a bee-ahch when i get it trimmed to the moon. best i've seen with my warmed up 350's is 60.9 if i was keeping this boat i would probably toss on a set of Vortech heads and go from there. great boats, cant say enough about mine. yours is going to be awsome with bravos and strokers
