Hereís what I and my motor builder propose to do build 2 496 n/a, dart pro 1 cnc heads, around 10.2 compression. They guarantee 625-650 [email protected] 5000. And will stand behind it!
This should be a pretty reliable combo I could afford to go to 575 darts or 598s but its probably not worth the extra 20 to 25 grand for the extra 10 mph and reliability go's out the window also I would surely blow drives. I will have Bam or Huber do the tranny. I will most likely use the TRS drives this year and be gentile and get konrads later. What do you think? I live with 65to70 for now save the money for fuel Ha Ha Really enjoy your feedback and will keep you posted on the progress, Im also redoing the cabin area and wanting to spruce up the gel coat.
careful with high compression, you still need to feed that baby and good octane is scarce on the water in some places. Great looking boat by the way. where is it from originally? it kinda looks like one that was in my area (Northwest Ohio) do you have pics of the cockpit and cabin? Very good look'in boat for sure.

I am not sure what your boat weighs. I have done a similar boat. I took a lot of weight out of my boat. I took out the trs and installed IMCO drives on Stellings boxes. The X Dimension was raised. My boat weighs 10,500 with a light load of fuel. It has run a best of 82 Mph @ 5000 rpm. I know it has a little left in it but have not tried any other props to turn more RPM. I am running 572ci 700HP 700Tq. I can run 50 at 3600rpms. Good luck with the boat, it looks great.

I think you should get a 2nd / 3rd opinion from different engine builders.
btw, you dont mention who your builder is....
