I had a 26 cat with twin 2.5's.....there was another cat (same hull) at the time with triple 2.5's and it did not even run 10 mph faster than mine with twins.

If you want flat out speed go with drag motors. DCB rigged a 22 cat with twin drag motors that ran 133 mph, and the acceleration was brutal!!

I have driven one. It ran 115. I got there in a real big hurry. lots of extra rigging to set it up right for the fuel system etc.

i have met the guy on lake hopatcong with the triple's on the 28 skater...he is a weird guy, state police told me that they are trying to get him kicked off the lake cause he goes 100+mph flying past boats at close range...the guy said that he has nitrous hooked up to it, and the engine's are not plain 2.5's, they run off of aviation fuel...he also said that it goes about 128mph...the boat looks ass heavy at speed and looks like it wants to blow over, i wouldnt suggest the triple combo, 2 is enough

I ran along next to him at 101 mph and he couldn't get away from me, someone told me later that he was having trouble with it and that it did run a WHOLE lot better than that.
