Question 31' Scarab..speed? Mods?

How fast should a '93 31' SCARAB run with 502efi's and 25Bravo I props? What can be done to motors to increase hp without putting blowers on them and what will this do to the efi's and the computer program for them?

SCARAB...why are you looking at a production boat? There's some good deals out there on higher quality stuff.

My friend has a 96 w/502 efi's and it runs around 68-69

My friend Lenny's girlfriend has one with some warmed over 502's,big roller cam , cmi headers,dart intakes and that one runs 79-80

ScreaminDeamon,

Why do you question the choice he has made? This may be something he has looked at for years. You make it sound like he's looking at a $1,500.00 Bayliner or something. I find it hard to doubt the quality of a companies product that has been building boats for as long as Wellcraft. Remember, there are people who own all different brands in here, why try to offend them?

HMMMMM......I guess that makes me just as guilty for mentioning Bayliner. Sorry!

Buck

In my travels as an aviator I spend my down time going around and seeing what possible good deals there are. I stumbled on to this one and that it might have some great potential. Also found a Cig that could be really great deal but then it is a heavier boat and needs more motor.
