You have the 496HOs right? Raylar has some nice upgrades for them.
Nope, the 292's are only available with twin small blocks. I got twin 6.2's @ 320 HP each. Great package. Good economy, acceleration, and will really wake-up with some mods (eventually). The 292 that took the world championship in its class had a single big block (due to class rules). I think it was an HP500. We really love this boat...

John, why are you selling your supercat? I was looking forward to seeing you race this year.

Looks like you could buy it back... (assuming this is the same boat. ) I know they didn't build too many of these so I'm guessing it's the same one.

They are definitely good looking boats.

That boat does still hold the title for fastest single outboard on the river, maybe even the east coast..(Tims radar run 06) But after last christmas i just dont want to be in it anymore. The boat is awesome though.

Talon 22s with twin 2.5s are a great package. I had a DCB mach22 with twin 2.5s and my two buddies with Talons would always out run me in acceleration and top end....It pi--ed me off.
