I know of another set of those or very similar twin turbo setup on the cradle available in upstate New York. One of the dirt track teams that I work with told me about some marine motors that were in the back of the shop and they showed them to me on my last trip up there. They were out of my league for my boat but they were very impressive and had me ogling for hours. It was about 1.5 years ago when I looked at them but I am sure that I can get more info on them if anybody is interested.

That was then, this is now.......if those who own these packages decided further develope those gems eg: newest, up to date electronics ect......turbo technology has grown leaps and bounds since 1996 (I believe the origin date of this motors).......man o man, what a killer endurance motor...with 1200 to 1400 hp without a sweat!!!

And if rigged in a competitive hull!!! If I were some of the big boys, I would be worried.....

Love this site!!
BINGO !!!
Welcome to the board Husker Performance!!!

You are correct Jon.
Mr T may want to read the board's rules before someone decides to take out the trash...
Well over a dozen times he has posted the same post throughout the forum sections....
He is as interesting as much as SPAM...

Metal Bros & Sonic30,
Yes they were overseas at one time.... Good eye!

That will not be an issue......

I am sure it will cost big $$$ just to replace all those SS Braided Hoses let alone finding the best electronics...
