who cares about the boat brand. of course fountain fast. all of us with 700's want to know how you get 6k. so no pulley change required, but pcm needs to be remapped to up the rev limiter and boost increased? who can do that? a mercury technician with level 2 access?

whats truelly amazing is that little 38 ft boat less 2 for the beak and less 2 for the swim platform so really a 34 ft boat then of coures you could deduct 2 for the notch so now it is a 32 foot boat is so stable at 117 or 120+, it really is true, that fountains are the fastest, safest, best handling boats out there. having owned a fountain since the early 90's and been in many others i still love my fountain what ever the lenght really is.

Stock limiters are 5400.

The 700 motors DO NOT make 785hp, no way. They make between 700-725hp SAE and are consistent up to 2500 feet corrected elevation. If you use a standard correction, on some dyno's, some may see 750-775 but thats not correct.
