My question is how are the motors when running. I have run in a big power turbo boat that when launching through rough stuff, or throttling the motors would want to spool up at different times, they weren't far behind each other, but you noticed it significantly when running hard. The boat would want to lean toward the motor that spooled up quicker.

I still get a laugh out of the story behind Tommy's testing method for the ECUs. Maybe, Albert can tell the story.

Funny you said that, I was at Chiefs yesterday and the same customer who baught these 6 turbos sent his 1075 Mercs to have Tommy install his ECU on it. End result made more power with less boost, go figure....for more info you must contact the Chief himself.
