That is the short version of everything he did to my boat. You really ought to see that thing. There is not a fitting, wire, hose bend that he rigged that is not completely thought out.

Eddie worked hard to use a few parts I had to build a custom motor. He does not stop until it is done right.

The boat now runs like no other 26ZX. It is a blast to drive.

I run 93 octane.

The boat ran 63-64 on a good day before. It has been to 88 before hitting some big waves. Eddie does not quit as soon as he puts in the boat. Boat conditions do not exactly equal dyno conditions so he is still dialing it in. It should do around 95 all said and done. That is a 30 mph increase and I could not be happier.

I have driven the boat at 85mph and it was not working hard.

Thank you everyone. It does still need some fine tuning. I have to find a good day to do it. Everytime we try to ring it out, we hit a roller and get it out of shape. I'd rather not end up in the water.
I will post some final numbers as soon as I can. As Bill said, we are looking for 95 mph. Again, thanks everyone.
Eddie
