Gino, How bout a pr. of these 540's ??? Plenty of hatch clearance, don't need any scoops on top. They run on 87 octane, and they made 1350 hp. @ 11 lbs. Totally turnkey. Add a few more lbs to em, put in some 93, and they'll see way over the 1500 mark.
They were run on 110 with I believe about 17-18 lbs, and they did around 1850.
If you're still lookin, call me and I'll hook you up with the guy that has a few pairs of them just sitting waiting for a boat. As a matter of fact, he'll be in Fla this week for the boat show, you can talk to him in person. One pr. are 598's, and I know another pr. are 540's, not sure about the 3rd pr. I know that one pr. already has gone into a 40 Skater up here, but it was'nt till Dec, and lake Michigan was gettin too cold for testing. Another pr. "might" be spoken for to go in a bigger cat, but it's not defineate as we speak.
