Default I just made an offer on a cobalt 282

I am shocked they are on this forums, but happy anyone know how to convert a 496 mag to a 496HO? Do I need to install captains call to run a 496HO?

You will need a new cam and a new ecm from merc to do it right. [yes] you should have the captains call it will help. It will give you 1.5 more rpm and 1 1/2 to 2 more MPH ON THE TOP END.

What will a 282 do with the 496 mag and bravo 3 duo prop set up?

My buddy has a Sea Ray 27 Select(all open...not a cuddy) with 496 Mag and Bravo 3. It only runs about 47 MPH. I would imagine a Cobalt will be a bit faster

It runs well...kicks my Bro's @ss in the rough(29 Fountain), so I'm happy about that. I can't wait to get it out of storage in May. Adding a few things this year including a sea strainer(blew 2 impellers last year).

Congrats on the Cobalt. 2 of my friends have them and they love them.

The pic in my avatar was taken by a staff photographer for my hometown newspaper(I had no idea he was taking it) on my first run last year. On memorial Day it showed up at the top of the page on the online version of the paper. A friend called me to tell me about it.
