Im hoping for right around 1075-1100.... it should respond well at 82 with 650 hp. Going to be exciting to see top speed... 458 carbon edition in the back Eric, its a clients and for sale under 2k miles.
Cant wait to hear it crack chad

being as the long blocks are already done in prep for this when i built them, Dave is going to put in new springs as insurance as well as new oil pumps. All of the Imco parts are just bolt on, I already had them remove the old gimbles and everything has been sold, so its really just a matter of re assembly. I don't see any reason it shouldn't be ready for memorial weekend. I may hold off sending the lowers to Wilson and get another set of lower cases, to A. have spares. B. do a true speed test difference between a non blue printed lower as compared to a blue printed one. It's nice to see where gains and losses actually occur so I can share that with others that may be looking into it. So if anyone has 2 low water pickup cases for sale pm me.

Memorial day sounds very reasonable. Are you going to change your drive height? What are you thinking for props?

Why not full SCX? with 1000 hp sounds like a spare pair is a good idea.

I have no clue on what size props, i was going to check with Phil and a couple others I'm thinking anywhere from 28-32 B1's. I have been researching the lowers for quite a while, honestly Craig at Wilson said the merc xr lower is the most hydrodynamic of all the lowers out there in that category. Also the straight hulls respond better with the drive deeper. I only lost one lower in all my years of owning it and that one had 472 hours on it. I run it hard but im not launching it every chance i get so i think my record holds, at least enough to warrant a try. I also run the drives spinning in and the attitude of the boat is perfect for me. I think thats why i was able to achieve the speed i did with relatively low HP. I think the setup is right, and the drive will be a little deeper for a couple of reasons, the scx sits back about an inch more than the xrs, plus the Whipple's are shipped at 148 lbs per, so there is an additional 300 lbs minimum added to the back of the boat.
should spruce this up a bit

Im hoping to stay around a 30-32 as in my research I hear that once you go bigger than 32ish you start to lose effectiveness.
