On the weekends 85-90 is all you want bvecause it is so crowded and rough, you just wont run 125mph but maybe twice a year there.
if set up right, 90 feels slow on these boats, even in a chop.

That's definitely not as fast as I run at LOTO .Big water is where it's at.

Dean has reviewed the project since I have had it sitting for the summer and has given me a ballpark estimate to assemble and dyno tune carbs, ignition and such.
Rough details
GM 572 10.2 tall deck, 4.5" bore, Internal balanced Crower 4.5" stroke crank, Crower 6.535" rods, Venolia flat top pistons and pins, ARP main and head studs, Crane roller cam,Isky springs, Crane Gold rockers, Ferrea valves, Dart alum 360cc heads w/ cast alum 2pc valve covers. Moroso oil pump,Manley roller chain cam drive w/ polished alum cover, Merc alum kickout style pan, Merc 420 Mega blower with 16 rib conversion including tensioner, Superchiller innercoolers, Holley twin 750 carbs, MSD distributor, Fluidampner balancer, SS crossovers, Hays lightened flywheel, polished alternators, and many misc internal components and external lines and fittings. Most all external bolts are polished stainless and many are ARP.
I had the motor completely assembled to make sure of fit and do the plumbing and then I disassembled to change the comp ratio by going to the current shorter rods. The rotating assy is already balanced and ready to go. A brief description of work to be completed is oil pan oil control mech, oil pump pickup, and then the heads I would reccomend valve fitment( guide fit, valve seat and valve fitment machining) Heads were skimmed flat, cut for preffered seals and misc. I don't have a detail sheet handy but most of the parts in these engines are new.
You can have Dean complete or you or your favorite engine shop. I would recommend keeping it all in one persons hands being Gellner.
please email me if interested in the package and you can also talk to Dean Gellner direct about details and specs of thier work as well as doin the completion. The work performed was under name Ken Helbling.
