Any OSOer's running the new package. What are the pros and cons? I haven't heard too much since Miami Boat show last year.

We just got our 43' Donzi ZR in with them and the NXT drives, WOW!
What a nice set up. The only down fall I can see is you having to run the 92 or better octane fuel in them. They sound awesome, idle at 750 in neutral and 700 in gear. The transmissions are a little bit on the stiff side to shift but so are some older Bravo's. We had the boat at the Annapolis boat show this past week, it brought a lot of attention.

Sunsation just put a pair of 700's in their 2nd F-4 and ran just over 100MPH.

My Customer Mike has one of the first 38ZRs 700 Package, he has about 40 hours and we just ran the Sarasota Poker run, full tanks, 3 guys and gear and we cruised at 92 MPH and ran 105 Topped out, so far he has had no problems and he loves his boat.
