Different animal JR.

Your Dad's is staggered.

IMO, With a side-by-side config...it would take 975 per side to hit 100....maybe more depending on setup.

I've heard that D-Man's ran 104-105 with 1000's.

That is correct bro. Primal Instinct has 950 Chiefs and tops out at 97 or so.

[QUOTE=gotime34]What HP would you need to go 100MPH in a non-stepped? Old School's is one of the only ones I've seen thats goes over 100. Does anyone know of any others? Sorry to sort of hi-jack your thread Smokin.[/QUOTE

You need a few thousand hp in a non stepped Gun to really run in the 100s .
With almost 900HP per side in our lighter weight 97 Kevlar Cover Girl Gun we have run a best of 95mph with 2 people low fuel good air and very rough water. High 80s fully loaded every day of the week.
It takes a ton of power to make these boats run , but there aren't to many Vs that will handle like the Gun at speed in the true Rough stuff!

Yeah I can't imagine it would run very fast with 496's. We only get low 70's with 540 Bulldogs at 500HP a side.

496 HO's can be pumped to 500 Hp aka Raylar or Whipple "safely"...and that would give ya decent speed and durability too.

Beyond 500 HP with those coated aluminum pistons you are on your own..

Yes but this boat owner has literally a few minutes actually trying to make it go faster. Way too busy boozin and filandering around to care that he has potential ineffeciencies lurking about. NK

BTW It's the little one in the back falling behind
