91' 27 Fever w/509 BM 250,2 carbs,8 lbs boost, 23 Rev 4,@5300 rpm= 79 mph GPS. Added a set of Gills over the winter(had stock exhaust)don't really expect much,had some leaking risers.Sure would love to see 80 though!Other than that typical boat and trailer maintenance.Love to have a 35 Lightning next preferrably with 500's, maybe with mith mild blowers to see 90 mph.

I'v seen 84 mph with 27 Hydromotive QIVs and dead calm water. That's with a pair of 500 HP 502s in a 1986 Excalibur Cat. 100 mph seems to be the magical number, and a new 30' cat would hit that number with these engines. I like the 30 Spectre and 30 Eliminator, but I think that the only way I am ever going to get to 100 is in this old cat, and a pair of blowers.
