Hey Carl,

I think there maybe a 312 in NSW a few years back. I got word of it around 2005.

Default chris craft stinger 26

hello i have a 26 stinger 1989 with twins 5.7 liter and alpha drives and i might need some information on performance to get a few miles per hour/i was getting 55 mph at 4700 rpm with a 21p prop and the guy that did my engines told me that since i put hydralic roller cam and i did a little bit of head work ,that i could easily run 5600 rpm and the engines will spin that with no problem but i will have to step down to a 19p prop.
please someone help me decide.

Default 26 ft stinger

i have more pictures of cabin and new engines coming to u guys
this motors are only turning 4500 rpm with a 21p prop.
t
my mechanic told me that this motors could easily turn 5500 rpm cause the are roller cams so i would have to step down to a 19p prop
what do you guys think?

Hey that would be great.I think it was red and black.Do you remember the HP it had?Eddito without knowing what's actually in your engines,specs etc it's hard to judge where you should be running them.Were they ever Dynoed?If they are the standard issue Merc motors with roller cams i would suggest 5000 rpm limit.If you are at 4500 now 19's should get about 5200 which is acceptable.
