Default 496/HO in Top Gun

What the speeds to expect with stock 496/HO and bravo 1's in a full cabin non-step top gun ?

depends on the year, but probably low to mid 60's.

I always thought the non-stepped hulls were pretty much the same from the late 80's until they made the stepped hull. Is it just lighter, or did they actually change the hull design??

I think that they built quite a few in the early 90's that had 502 mags. they ran mid-high 60's. I have a buddy that has a 94 with 500efi's. His boat runs 72 on gps.

They started vaccum bagging the hulls and messed with the center of gravity in the mid 90's. That increased the speeds a little. Still not going to be very quick with a full cabin and 496's.

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.

we have twin 1050's and we see 105-107 but to get to a hundred a pair of 875 hp or 900 will do cause i know most non-steps guns that have twin 850 see 94-95 mph all day

I am with TwinStepGun on this. Huge difference in weight between the years. I have owned a 1989 kevlar and a 1992 fiber the 1992 was a much lighter boat. It will not be really fast with 496īs but you canīt find a better ride in the rough.
