Hey chuck, how are you, we are still boating, I was just talking about you today to my son Wayne. Did you know their is a Radar Run at Tims II this Sat. Oct 15? Details are kind of sketchy but I was told around 9:00 A.M. Tim is not advertising it, but was told by three different people it is on.

Whipple does not have anything..........go with another type
And Whipple won't have anything for along time....don't belive the middle of November

AND don't go with any super charger...buy a bigger motor
You'll be better off in the long run....no pun intended

The warranty will not mean crap after selling it. Keep it and sell it with the boat. Trying to sell a boat with a S/C on it can be very troublesome

I am sure you can find someone to swap a 525efi for a 500efi, plus a few bucks to you. I would offer but I am sure mine already has to many hours for you, 405hrs I figure I am about 100-150 from a rebuild.

WOW ! Is your 500 all stock? What is the internal difference between the 525 and 500?

Yea my 500efi is stock, I have replaced the valve springs at 275hrs. I have run Mobil 1 synthetic since new and change it every 20-25 hours. You need to understand that I rarely run it WOT, maybe 4 mins per 6 hours. Usually 2800-3400 rpms Heck on SML at 75mph you run out of lake pretty fast, or some one pulls infront of you.

Because of the rain and high water, the run has been posponed until 10/22, too much trash in the river. Maybe you can make it then!!
