So it's 3 mph faster than the Nor-tech with 1075's and how much lighter, and is a race boat with the top of the canopy cut off. Jc is giving us too much credit they are 1300's

I guess we will not know until the Miami boat show week, my 42 MTI has 1100 HP EFI Sterlings and I should see 165 plus with the proper props, I will ask Mike at Sterling if we can turn them up to 1250 HP, put some bigger props on it and then take it out and see what it will do for top end. Again I ask the question top end is only a number, why do you want to run that fast in an open canopy boat. Again, I am not flaming, both Tron and Terry will both tell you, they do not build race boats or could care less about kilo runs. I doubt very seriously if Nor Tech ever intended for one of their boats to be pushed to 178 MPH.

Actually that boat ran 162 per J.T. it was not proped for top end. He thought 170+ would not be problem with 40 wheels and 1.24 gears. But as i said it was proped for fun and acceleration.
I haven't seen any No-Techs run anywhere close to 160 with 1075's.
