Yes, the motors were rebuilt , we got ride of the oil injection , changed the port timing ,opened up the exhaust , slight mill on the heads , rejet the carbs, machined the front air horn . This way we boost the hp to a reliable level . We will spin them up to 6800-7000

Kurt, My searay is in the water, but have not been out yet. Its still pretty cold down here . I do not think I can test the Activator today as its cold, and its blowing like 25mph . I have not touched the OL yet.

What do ya mean cold?? I heard it was 50 degree's and raining this weekend.I miss that weather ! Not!

Boat looks great bring it down to jacksonville, or one of your other toyz.

It seems as though the wind will not let up down here 15-25 this past weekend but around 75
