FF2 .... nice stuff !

Is the LAW on lake George as tuff on the performance boats as I've heard (noise, speed ect...) or is it a little exagerrated ????

I prefer Sterling Performance engines. Fountain, OL and myself used them for the kilo runs where reliability is as important as big horsepower. Mike's engines seem to have both.

They will be total asses if you are a total ass. Like if you blow by 100 yards away at 100+ they will stop you. And if they stop you a lot of times they will noise test you.

I have not read the whole thread, but I have to throw Bob Teague's name out there. I know more than a few people that have had his motors and had excellent results with them. I know of a couple of 1000's he built that have held together VERY well, and they have been hammered on.

Add KE and Chief to that list. I know 3600CAT builds awsome motors.
