Default test drove a H2X with blown 6.2 today!

Bought the boat, got it last friday, drove it today! All forged internals, Procharger 5 pounds of boost:

WOT was 70 mph gps but 76 on dash guage. spinning a 4 blade 24 but hitting rev limiter, full of gas 2 people, water calm as much as oil can be flat...

quite a nervous machine to drive!

Will try 26 next time...

Nice! I'm suprised you only hit 70, I would have thought higher. Maybe the other prop will help. Get ready for the Baja bashing!

owner said 80 mph... I think I could see this in a little chop, or close to 80... on dash gauge...

Those H2X's are great boats. We ran one into the 90s with a Whippled 502.

I was cruising 36 mph at 3000 rpm
52 at 4000 rpm
and 60 at 4500 rpm. And they plane at slow speed! 2500 rpm for 25 mph! I guess they could even be on plane at...22...23 mph...
