Hi!

My ol' Phantom 25 with a Promax 300 SVS runs 76 mph on a average day. 78 mph on a good one. Tried it with 2 x 2.5 EFI SS and it ran 98 mph...

Kept it wth single engine as the fuel price is 1,8 USD per litre...

It would be cheaper and more fun to buy my 20' outboard Ski tunnel and Fly in the mid 70s then to put a big block in that beast
