A fresh pair of Wesco Racing engines, 598 cu. in. 1100 hp. These engines came right off the dyno and went into the boat a couple days before we were supposed to leave for Texas. My wife and I were planned to fly down with the engine builder "Dave Wesseldyk" but we had a last minute change in plans and could'nt come down. Sorry we missed it.
Those engines with 2 more lbs. of boost made 1200 hp, but we had the boost turned down a bit for the first time out. The name on the boat had just been changed too right before it left Chicago, and they wrote it wrong, it was supposed to be lettered "SOLID MUSCLE", and that will be changed too once it gets back.
The engines performed "flawless" like they always do after Dave builds them. Dave was just down there to make sure that everything went smooth and made some last minute carb adjustments once it was splashed.
