Default Konrad conversion updates?

There were a couple conversions being done to I believe sonics. What were the before and after results on performance #'s? I think Doller was doing the work?

We have completed the 42 Sonic, and it has just gone up north. The initial results were very good as far as boat attitude, but until the 10 hour break-in period is up we will not have top speed results. I will keep you posted. The second conversion is underway, this is a 38 sonic, here are some pics, the second engine went in yesterday, and we will let you know as soon as we have some testing results.

Lookin' good Mindi!

Paul flogged those drives at many poker runs last year with no problems. Now he is installing Brodix heads and more boost, and he's not worried. This conversion is worth every penny.

Those are bullet proof drives and a great looking installation.
