You're right about LOTO, but I see your in Cape Coral, FL? Surely there's no noise ordinance in FL is there?

The boat resides in Burnt Store Marina. Major league blowboater and trawler crowd. He needs to keep it down.
However here in Lee County they are cracking down on the noise too.
Let's face it. We may like it loud but we'll be extinct if we don't start doing something about it.

With all engines you should see a fluctuation in power when the temp and humidity change. Cooler air is more dense than warmer air. Therefore, your engine will create more power and work more efficiently at lower temperatures than higher temperatures. Super chargers, turbo chargers and intercoolers work off these principles. Superchargers compress the air and make the air more dense and increase the energy released per volume during combustion. Intercoolers help this process by cooling the air that is introduced to the engines as cooler air is more dense than warmer air.

the v-10's don't sound right to me, not a v-8 or v-12... kinda like a hopped up UPS truck or something, great engines though, just not real fond of the sound...
