What's up with putting 1500, 1600, 1800 hp motors in boats? My god where does it end? I would think that boats with these monster hp motors are in the shop more than on the water. I guess I don't see the fun in that?

Yes he had problems with the turbo motors, but I don't think they were grenading. Just not making the power he hoped for. They are back at Pfaff's with PSI's and will be run on alcohol.
Alcohol?? That doesn't sound very good for a boat..... The amount of tuning that's going to be needed (just about every day) will be rediculous.

I have melted aluminum KE headers several times ( but alot of other people have too, and it is a casting flaw in them, one of the ones we melted we cut open and found alot of really thin spots) we have broke the welds on the intercooler (when we had them built we were only going to run 8 lbs boost, they never broke till we started running 25 lbs boost that they were not designed to handle) my drivetrain is totally different than anyone else's, we have a driveshaft hooked directly to my crank and have broke drivesavers that were rated for 2000 hp, we broke several driveshafts, and now the only problem we have is breaking props. but looking at what the other marine engine builders are trying to do, we can see things that we had problems with 10 years ago and worked through and they are just going to try to do trial and error to solve them.

I would imagine that they are built for the purpose of going extremely fast. Not for pleasure boating.
Some people probably like going really fast.... (damn hooligans)

Pleeeeze...how you going to run alcohol in a pleasure boat all the time...????..You have to get them to a certain temp then nail it...the variance in temp will change the tune up then they will blow up...you guys are the only ones on alcohol maybe it will be for speed runs..
