I was only looking for 1200 hp. I don't know that the boat is going to be able to handle even that much power. I couldn't hold the engine at that boost level for more than a few seconds at wide open. The dyno would not hold it. I would want to see that everything was going to be OK. Everything looked good for the amount of time we ran it, but it will get held wide open in the boat for longer than that. It has a warranty and I want to be sure it is good to go.
I would have to run it in the boat wide open myself before I gave it to the customer with that much boost on 93 octane. Now if we put a little more octane in it, then no problem. We can actually go a little higher than that. But like I said, the main reason is that I sold the customer 1200 hp.

Slingshot,
The engine will go between 125 and 150 hrs. At that time, the top end and valvetrain need to be done. The bottom end doesn't need it, but it should be done while your there and the engine is opened up.

RunningHot, aka BIG DADDY,
Thanks. The power is corrected. It was a good day so the correction was not very high.(about 55 hp) The heads are Brodix BB2Extra with a ton of port work. The cam.....I'll never tell

Keith,
It sure does fly by doesn't it. It doesn't seem that long ago I was helping to assemble your stuff while working for your brother. I consider myself very lucky to be able to make a living doing something that I truly love. Keep in touch. You know where to find me if you need anything....anytime.

Mike,
I was surprised it wanted to spin that high. I thought it would be out of cam by 6300. The quadrotors were done by 6200, and they were the same setup. I have been getting away from the Darts, since the Brodix heads have been making some good power on the last few engines I used them on. I think the Darts may have been a better choice for these engines. Talk to you soon, Eddie.

Thanks everyone else. I'll will keep you guys posted with pics and data.
