100% agree with 525's not being enuf. Just buy a 700 boat and you'll be a happy camper.

Yes, I have a customer in Turkey with a silver 39 Top Gun with Arnesons and Whipple'd 525's.

Boat runs great he says.

I whippled my 525's, they dyno'd at 780hp/735ftlbs of torque . I have xr's with imco lowers. Installed on a 39 velocity which is lighter. Have been a reliable setup. As customryder stated if you drive sensibly setup should last.

The best part is that the owner says it handles better, gets on plane easier and is better all around than the Bravos!

Sounds about right, it is a nice package if done correctly with some drive upgrades you should be good to go.
