I was wondering on the speed claims...

502' swith 6-71's and 2 lbs of boost and the boat runs 90 MPH?

I will say it looks like it could be a heck of a nice boat.

Any experts to clarify this?
Good point Warparty36, need the engine experts please.
I was just going by what 'gearhaeads' told me years ago. and I'm no expert.

The deck looks like a standard KV. All the Larry Smith decks I've seen had different design with a wider cockpit.

Also the HIN listed is for a Wellcraft.

Nice ride. How much lighter was the Kelvar layup. Naturally Aspirated is without forced intake air. Blowers and turbos produce unnatural air flow. Some guys on the NOS bottle like to say Chemically Aspirated.

This is correct; except...

I have been "chemically aspirated" a few times after the Red Bull fill'em up cup comes by.
