These are the pics of the original set up , Ill get pics of the new rigging soon, Had to shorten the center engines driveshaft and move it back about 5 inchs so it would clear with the Whipple on it. Also had to put in new larger fuel lines and relocate throttle cables. Hopefully its ready in a couple more weeks.

Looks like she is taking a good set! But the poor bottom of the boat needs a good scrub.....

They had it out running tests and tuning it , needed additional water pickups the engines were running hot when it got up to around 85mph , so once new water pickups are on its back to testing

It's at our shop now for the intercooler plumbing updates. Awesome, awesome rig. While doing the fuel maps last week we were hitting 85mph with a LOT of throttle left.

That was sure quite a bit of work and upgrades. Were you guys able to get it finished and dialed in before the end of the season.
