Default Volvo DPX Drives

Does anyone own a boat with a DPX that can comment on handling, setup, etc?

I know they are a great drive but what about the boat manufacturers setup? Since there weren't too many produced did the manufactures do a good job with proper X-dimension, prop selection, etc?

A friend of mine is looking at a Donzi Classic with the 385 DPX package and I am wondering how the boat handles? I know set-up right it should run on rails!

Anyone out there have one?

We are a volvo dealer and it handles about the same as a merc drive.

C_Spray should have the down low on the DPX set-up. PM him if he doesnt respond here.

Cool, thanks. My main concern was Donzi mounting having to "find" the best X.
