Default 700 hp N/A or supercharged ?

whats going to last longer and be eaiser to maintain a N/A 700 hp engine or a 700 hp supercharged engine? Assuming the N/A engine would be a 598 ci block and the supercharged a 502. both could run on 87-89 octane. both real hp around 725-750 hp. is one any harder on drives ?

I know of a triple set of 675hp Chief Blower motors that had 500 hours before they were touched for the first time.

Id say a N/A is going to last longer. What boat is this power going in?? I think that makes a difference as well.

Howards new 35 Bullet that they are finishing up. If it works anything like their 28' Bullet it will be a winner. time will tell.

The one you have is great - unless you want to cut off half the cloth.
