That's what I was going to say. It's a big surprise most of the time.

Try Worldwide Marine Underwriters (Bob Luellen) 517 333-4100 They wrote my 36' Skater last year. I moved to Nationwide this year they were much cheaper, but also carry my auto and home.

If your not sure how much time are on the #5 drives have them checked out. You will save alot of money in the long run, they are great drives like #6s they take alot of abuse on cats. Matt at TNT does all my drives. In my opinion his is one of the best.

Shift those transmissions all you want. The default is second gear.The soleniod holds it in first gear, if it fails it goes to second (high) gear. I did a lot of research with the company and hi-perf transmission rebuilders. I say run them. If they blow replace them.
How the heck do you guys know how big those engines are???
Anybody want to guess what these are?

I am looking at the posts again and maybe I am mixing apples and oranges here. 575 is more likely the cubic inches and some assumed it was the horsepower? I assumed cubic inches. Which bring the comments of "more than 575". Then I agree they are more likely 1000hp and the 575 (572) is cubes. My bad.

Ok I was saying 575CI, Not 575HP, Sorry for Confusing everyone. As Far as the HP, I am pulling them out sometime next week and shooting 'em down to JC Performance, so I will definately post some stats when the dyno gets done.
