I'm getting ready to build a new boat and what kind of pricing does the complete Konrad setup w/box cost?

JCPERF what do you think of this setup? Then is the price difference worth going away from 6's?

I guess that was a figure of speech in some degree. I'm just thinking would a 150 mph cat, 32 to 40 feet long, be comfortable with Konrad's, and would it perform, as good or better than the 6's?

Rod Tshiggfrie.....25 Talon cat.....1300HP.....6A outdrive

http://www.racecrafters.biz/

under "boats for sale"

Not a V-bottom, but I've seen this boat and it was balanced well for it's size.

He used to bring this boat to the Shoot-out but the conditions kept it from reaching top speeds.
He's run this boat in a 1/4 mi drag race and it reached 127 mph. Hang on........

Konrads are a good choice.The #6 is the best and isnt that much more money.I paid 8K for a mint gimbal and wet sump drive that was run in fresh water only used.There are alot of wet sump 6s floating around

The gear ratio is 1:24 with a 16.5" diameter 27 pitch prop. The boat has no trouble getting on plane. The turbos have water cooled heat shields to control radiant heat. The turbo guru who designed and built most of the system is Tom Earhart.
