It nice to see and hear the great job Bob Lloyd did setting up our Raylar kit on your motor! Looks awesome and sounds like it will streak! Congratulations! You should have some fun this season.

Best Regards,

Bob Lloyd of Full Throttle Marine took it out yesterday and was able to get 72.8 MPH out of it......He was at 5100 RPM and the limiter is set at 5400 so if I get the Prop reworked I would think I can get 73.5 and closer to that 5400RPM

Sweet. Sounds like it's running great. Might have to get a Raylar system installed on my motor for my Heat.

Looks and sounds great! Looks weird just running it in the parking lot instead of inside the shop.

I just finished getting a good dyno run on this engine. We made 492.7 HP at 5170 RPM. This is measured at the prop with everything installed in the boat ready to run. Even had the hatch closed.
