I could only imagine the heat those PC's throw out at 11psi.
Maybe I buy that and spank all you guys.

975 HP with 500 HP exhaust, some sales pitch tough. And it can beat any!!, Fountain, guess that means "On the Chip" too.

1) yep!

2) since everyone can outrun an AT, he didn't see the need to repeat that.

This boat ran 110 @ the Shootout a couple
of years ago ( before this guy had it)

The current owner ran it last year, and
I think he ranged from a low of 81
to a high of 99.

I sent him an e-mail to ask if it comes with a bimini?

If not, that would be a deal breaker.

Good one lol, tomorrow I visit Arnaldo with my sawzall.
I run Prochargers on the blue Fountain , when we were fooling with them on the dyno we got up to 950 hp with 540's,
Problem I see with this guys motor setup is the exhaust is not capable of sustaining the HP he claims, can't force the air in if you can't get it out. Prochargers also have the same parasitic load as a power steering unit, were a roots blower saps about 150HP to spin it. I gotta say that Scarab must be quick he told me he beat the Orange Reliable Carriers Boat
