I haven't done the etops on a 496 yet. I have actually tested a set on a 502. Not sure why but he bought the 496 etops and converted them for the 502. I didn't get to do a before and after but they looked and sounded good. They had changed the cam to one that was way too big for the applictaion and I was concerned about reversion. But, there didn't appear to be any so that's encouraging. It showed a 60 hp gain at the prop, but that was increased compression, cam change and reprogram on the ecu. That's all I know right now.

heres one few people even consider when talking about speed in their chosen ride.........
i noticed that some of the folks that posted are doing most of their boating on rivers...... rivers have flow ,current..... usually to the tune of 2/3 mph i know my local one does........ to get true speed you need to subtract water speed
