The motors had problems and the speed just wasnt there so I went and repowered it with a pair of 500 hps and kept the same drives. This past year the motors are starting to seem a bit tired and i blew both drives at different times (both during poker runs). I want to repower and make the boat as bullet proof as possible so im think i want to go with a pair of 600sci's and a pair of B-max drives what are your thoughts on this combo?Any help will be greatly apprciated.
Rebuild of the engines, Turbos and install Arnesons and youŽll never look back. Ok you can drop the Turbos but keep the ASDŽs.

diesel would be great for fuel milage but I think the increase in weight might slow me down a little. Its not even an option. Maybe Ill give JC Performance a call. As far as asd's, Its tough enough sometimes to find a place to dock my boat in a spot thats only as long as my boat without having to worry about the extra 3 feet hanging off the back for the asd's
