Default Bravo 1's and horsepower

How much horsepower can the Bravo 1's handle? I have a 33' sport currently powered with 496 HO's and bravo 1's. Thinking about merc 525's. Are there any upgrades to the Bravo 1's that will help them handle the extra power. looking for more speed but I would still like to maintain the reliability. Maybe some easy uprgades to the 496's ...any ideas?

Saw you last Sunday go down and back up the Livingston channel. We were anchored in the bay at the north end.

You need a trailer! bottom was brown. Did you ever measure mine?
