I have a pair of 925's that make well over 1,000hp of Eddies that run like raped apes. The drivability is like a pair of 500's. I would say 525's.....but they run cleaner.

Better watch out people. If Eddie's head gets any bigger he'll tip over.

Thanks, I have nothing invested in this thread but as a do-it-yourselfer enjoy learning from great builders like yourself. I know this project will be top shelf and one of the more memorable builds. GREAT JOB!!!!!!

No doubt. I have some riggin that needs to be done before Eddie gets feeling too good about himself

Last week I fired upthat 850 Eddie built for me. First lick of the ignition and it fired right up. It idled like a 500 EFI, only much louder!

Then there was the guy that was complaining about loud boats. Yes son, all that silent choice does is to make the boats sound loud!

Yours just run to smooth for big carb engines. I think that I will actually miss that small blower lope!

Thanks Bob. I agree, not much in the way of problems. I took the boat out today and everything is great. It ran excellent and I was able to get a good bit of the fine tuning done. One more trip tomorrow should about do it.
