    Awesome!!!!! After all the headaches with, you've got to be pretty happy. If that was right out of the box with stock props, you should definately be able to get a few more mph out.

    Yep - stock Bravo props. Not quite certain what I need to do to the props though. I'd like to get another 3mph just so I can say I have a true 20mph gain out of the new engines.
    I didn't have a GPS when I took her out, but I was running 4900 rpm and everything was running real smooth.
    I'm happy that I was able to take her out for a few hours this weekend but there are still a few bugs to iron out: shifters aren't working properly (had one stick in reverse for a while before I muscled it back into drive), it doesn't seem like the neutral safety switches are working, the carbs are sneezing when under heavy acceleration from a idle, causing the engines to die and my throttles now only seems to have about 6 "clicks" to them...I get a choice between idle and go like hell.

    But what a difference in acceleration bewteen the old engines/drives and the new ones.

    Sounds good G. As for the Throttles make sure they put them back in the correct hole on the carbs. If they used the lower holes you will get the short through deal. You can ussually adjust them at the handle end as well but I am not sure what ones you have. Closer to the pivot point means you will get more through in the handles. Glad you are back in the water and it sounds like one hell of a gain!!!

    Put your best foot forward!
