Super,

So Ron is building motors on his own now and not for Nortech? Do you know if the 650 efi is a true 650 HP? If so, I would assume that one would have to upgrade the drives from XR's, right?

I have got to know Ron Potter through the years and in my eyes have never seen a better engine builder, When Nor-Tech went on the Mercury program, Ron Potter left and started Potter Performance, he designed most of the Nor-Tech engines. The man is flawless, his shop alone will show you how he represents himself, Extreme magazine is doing a big spread on Ron calling him the Wizard and he deserves it. We have had over 20 Custom engines built by Ron and he backs up his work Bobs 44MTI SpeedRacer and his old 36 Nor-Tech perfect storm have always had Potter Engines. Before I would pay the expence to have Brand New 525 Mercs built to higher HP. Save your money and have Ronnie build you from bottom up the HP you need. I know a pair of 777s are cheaper then a 600 from Merc and built stronger, bullet proof and made to last. We have 3 customers with the 777s and one has over 140 hours with no issues, The Man Is a Wizard and next year I am going to have my 496s ripped out of my Donzi and have him build me 777s the best part is they are EFI and naturally asperated, NO BLOWERS.
You can also vist www.potterperformance.com or go to our site www.typhoonsc.com and click on engines.

TC, yes Ron is building his own Bullet Proof motors for about 2 years now. You will have to give Ron a call about true HP. I would think you should be fine with the XR'S. I have put about 60 hours on my XR with a Ron Potter 800 EFI.

Motors freshened at 140 hours?? WTF is that all about? All the threads that I have read about 600 SCI's have said they go 300+ hours before needing a refresh. He must have run the balls off that boat. Is it the orange/yellow one in the classifieds?

Don't step a side, step up and buy the 38. You know I don't have any interest in a Fountain.

Dude lets not start a pissing contest there is bad blood between Nor-Tech and Ron and it isn't on Rons part, many of us know the reason why he left and so do a lot of his customers as far as Rons engines don't go pissing on a guy like Gary that spent $$$ on a brand new engine that he is proud of and runs strong and he can call Ron anytime and talk to the man. So lets not start slandering an engine builder. Thats like putting down a mans boat "It his Pride and Joy" Oh by the way this is what super baby engine looks like.
