I have had it up to 6200rpm with no issues before. the cam card had it at .027" intake and .029" exhaust. Not sure what springs are in it. I will probably be pulling the motor.

philm, any new news?
I am formulaing a rebuild plan for the winter of my own. I may convert to EFI and go with Procharger (I am a dealer) Or a 5 litter Whipple and dual quads. I have a Big block Bowtie, with merlin heads and lots of good parts MRD built, but may just sell it complete after freshening it up, and start from scratch with a tall deck and stroke it to 572. Too many options, I want about 1000-1100hp and 110-115mph
Anyone know or want to guess the weight of a Kryptoite? I am having mine weighed next week. It will be a wet test but will still gve me an idea. I may drain the fuel. Hope everyone is well. Have a safe holiday weekend

the 29's tipped the scales at 2,300 pounds and the 27's are about 2,200 pounds. thats hull only with no rigging.

No new news really. I dont really have the funds for a full rebuild right now. I will probably have the motor rebuilt and see if i can sell it and buy a stock 500efi or 525efi. something that will run for 500hours or more with only oil changes. I am not sure right now though. Either that or have a new cam put in it that isnt so aggresive on the valve train.

Not a bad idea. what do you want for the 598?
Also do you know the trans angle of the 29 Kryptonite? I am talking to Arneson about a drive.

no clue what I want for it right now. I have a couple people who have PMed me asking to buy it as is, but I am not sure which way I would like to go with it yet. PM me an offer and maybe we can figure something out. How many hours does your motor have on it?

I am not sure about the transom angle. I was thinking about an arneson, but I just dont think that anyone has had good luck with a single vee surface drive, at least none that I have heard of. Could be a sweet setup.
