Oh...all the F1 teams use to bore them out to 509ci so I thought this might be 1 of the original F1 HP500 cab engines.

I was part of the Oatey team and help out with that Corsa. I remember watching all the awesome racing between these 2 boats and Bob Bulls Velocity. Great memories...I miss those times!

They were about 485 at the flywheel. At 509 good ones made 505. When we allowed the cmi 15.5" runner they would make 515.
This boat is dialed in. Very much "on the rails"
