Steet, how much fuel efficiency do you think you are getting with the 625 over the big block chevy, say a 525. We talked about your 550s once, but are you seeing the same kind of savings with your 625s.

Hydrocruser, I like the idea of that blower. I'll have to check it out and see if I have enough room. I have no intentions whatsoever to change anything to the Magnum deck or cockpit. IT IS and allways will be THE MAGNIFICENT MAGNUM
Nobody has ever designed and built a boat like it, and they probably never will. To me, it is the sexiest offshore ever built. It's long, sleek, and the cockpit is as far aft as it could be. The cuddy doesn't have creature comforts that most other boaters want, BUT, other boats don't look like a Magnum. Never have, and never will. Thanks for your suggestion. With that setup I just might break 100! Tony

MentalPause is correct. I am running the 625's in a 41 Velocity. I have the Imco Extreme SC's and have no issues with them. As for the difference in fuel economy, I have seen a slight increase of fuel usage with the 625's vs. the 550's.
Still, the 625's I would have to say are equal to the 525's
I have run with similiar size boats with the 525's and some with the 500EFI's and I am always within a couple of gallons of the same fuel usage as them. I would like to run with another 41' Velocity w/525's to get a good comparison.
