Eddie, looks great, the merc 1075's produce 1140hp, seems like alot of work and money for 60-80hp, just wondering what the goal was on the new motors, what is the warranty on the motors?, have you used the 8.3 whipple, what do you think the bigger blower would of added?

Thanks guys. That's what it's all about....sharing our projects. I hope that something I've done gives someone else an idea to make their stuff better. I have certainly gotten some ideas from projects on here. I'm all about anything that makes our boats better, safer, or more enjoyable.

I am doing just that Eddie, attempting to put together a new motor and my target is the 1100-1200hp area. I will see if I can step up to your standards!! Thanks for the input.

Sorry Big Daddy, I can't give it all up at once. Just like a high school up girl, if she gives it up on the first date, then you don't need her anymore.

Do the Math, I am living the dream. Everything could not be better. Thank you.

Dick, I wish you the best with your project. I'll be glad to help you any way I can.

10X, Thank you.

Eddie

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.
