Should solve the problems of stalling at idle and meeting legal decibel limits...

keep in mind a 600 HP duramax has almost 1000 ft lbs of torque at its disposal... which is about the same torque as a 1075 merc...... SO its safe to say that the boat ran comparable to atleast 850's or perhaps a bit more..

Anyone have any clue how much the 600's or 800's will be priced around?

I have some experience with Seateks in a Buzzi cat with Tri-max drives - what's your question?

Also, when people are talking about "Duramax" @ 600 hp, do you mean the little GM diesels from the pick-up trucks?
