About 3000 rpm's and it was up and going.
Almost knocked your beers over Now you wouldnt want to do that

Words of advice that the original owner told me when I bought my previous boat with a blower motor. "If intend to run it w/o the blower setup, don't drive until it has been removed cause I would be very dissappointed in the difference of power"

I had every intention of putting that motor back to stock ASAP after I bought it because I didn't want the blower motor issues. But stupid me, I didn't listen to him and was hooked.

Very nice looking boat! .................for a Cig
