i d rather have drag then a broken bravo
A Bravo is a Bravo..... a six drive is a six drive..and, while the aftermarket guys beef up the Bravos.....they all might as well be made out of plastic when compared to a six.Originally posted by burtandnancy
If you want to stay away from the weight, cost and drag of #VI's, take a good look at the various drives from IMCO...

We will work with you to build a very reliable package. We have some 750 naturally aspirated engines that have over 400 hrs on them. Jassman's boat is at paint, and will be out in a few weeks. His engines made 745 hp @5400 w/ wet exhaust and mufflers. His engines were designed to be extremely reliable. The EFI systems compensate for most conditions, and have a fail-safe mode, which will add fuel and reduce timing in the event a problem occurs. We will also be working with a few major magazines on projects in 2004, and could probably use your boat as a feature. Give me a call if we can help you in any way.
I want more power than the 525 and 575, plus the 900sc is being faded out. I went through this over and over again and decided to ask everyone to get some good info...Ths has been a tremendous helpOriginally posted by cuda
Just curious why you don't want Merc? You could be just about anywhere in the world if something went wrong, you could have it covered under warranty. Try that with an independant builder.
I am going to call all the builders and se what kind of pricing I am in for then get back to Mike and Paul with what I find out...Tomorrow I plan on calling Pfaff, Sterling, and maybe 1 or 2 more if I have the time. I spoke with Total Marine Performance and Tommy at Chief about some previous work I had done.
I shot the 900sc#6 package to Mike 2 days ago and decided to keep looking for something different...Originally posted by ssm-v1
I know that Innovation does hipo rebuilds. But I would do a 39 epoxy with a pair of merc.900s on #6 that should be good a high teen to 120 mph boat if I had the cash.
Trout, I am between TX and So Cal and we have nothing down in TX but tumbleweed and cowboys
We own a trucking company so I can put the boat on a stepdeck and send it anywhere in the country...I just want the best motor for the dollar that won't break every time we go out or be a maintenance nightmare.
Already corrected - see post #28, but thanks for the clarification anyway. I was SURE that Mike told me that he had been involved in those engines somehow....Originally posted by T2x
Bora-Bora, huh? Post some pics for us less fortunate ones, please.

Mike D. says 200 hours !!!
Try the Total Marine Guys, Steve and Eddie, 954-649-9888.
The motors going in my 4300 Nortech were built for reliability, I'm tired of tinkering and just want to have a good time this year hitting as many poker runs as possible.
