low 50's with the 330, no performance differance just depends on how you like the layouts for comfort SS to me is a nicer day boat for hanging out on it more cockpit room

The LS will be a few MPH faster because there is less weight forward. It will pull the bow out just a tad more than the SS will. I like the running attitude of the LS better too, it feels lighter the way it rides.

57 - 60 not bad, how many hp is the 454 magnum?

I had a 1987 26 Scarab exel with 350 magnum it went 54
it was 270 hp at that time. The Scarab hull is lighter and faster maybe.
