Default SEI complete Bravo drives

So..... Who's gonna be the first one to buy one of these for $3,125 and put it behind 700+ HP ?????? Haha

At $3,125 if it lasted 1 season and you just tossed it every year you might be $ ahead! LOL

Bought 2 complete SEI bravos I think I was the first one to buy a set ,they look quality and are swept back style , the end play feels correct, for shipping purposes they ship them in two different boxes,
I figured I might as well try these versus paying crazy money for used 20-25 year old bravos

and talking to the rep as well on their warranty card, three-year no-fault warranty, if you pick up a fishing line, forget to raise it and hit the ramp with it ,send it to them and they'll repair or send you another one, how can you beat that?

Link? I've been waiting forever for them to have an entire drive, not just a lower.
I've been considering a lower since my cav plate got jacked up 2 years ago, but it's had no effect on actual performance.

If I didnt just buy an upper and lower last month I would have bought this and tested it out come spring...

They've got all kinds of ratios and water pickup configurations on their website. And Bravo 3 too.

I hope this will get Bravo OEM parts to drop in price like they did with the Alphas after SEI came out with one.

I had a friend use the lowers on his straight bottom 38 TG, trash the lower, they replaced it no questions asked. At the price buy 2 for one Bravo why not. Be nice to see a XZ or XR style out of them.

have a friend that runs a marine repair business and has used quite a few SEI lowers with good results, had one or two that needed to go back for warranty repairs, but then again I don't think that's anything out of the ordinary it's not like mercury is not having any warranty claims either
