Default What to expect?

I also posted this in the Hustler section but thought I would get more feed back here.

Out of a 377 talon with 530hp, 550 tourque aluminum small blocks turning 7200rpm's with 6's.
PR set up.
Just wondering what kind of speed it would see.And how the boat would handle with the azz end being lite.

Azz end will not be that much lighter. those engines should only be about 400lbs lighter each. THe #6 drive will still weigh a ton. If you want the weight back, move the tanks to the rear IMO.

What the hell are you doing with a boat like that anyway?
