Would only want 5 to 10 mph out of the diesels so perhaps 25hp each, enough to cool and hot start the turbines.
hey talk to Gerry from KNOT RIGHT it is a shiftable turbine boat no bull**** obs, or other power. its the 1st MY WAY boat 46 skater t 53 turbines and moves fine around the docks , he way be able to rig it for you put a package together or talk to DEAN it can't hurt and he is not that far away and when people have the money in hand to do the work it instead of payments like me over time it goes quick. and his stuff lasts a long time not like so many others that I have read about or used in the past. bill give a call its been a while. art

comes to the customer fat and safe

That's the best single piece of advice on running a marine engine I've ever seen. Recently I changed air bleeds in my Dominators on my n/a 540's. They were lean on top end and and fat in the middle and I was using 98 jets already. Based on advice from Speedtalk.com, I changed the bleeds from .037 to .027. I was able to lower the jet size to 92 and the top end and midrange was better. To run .037 bleeds and jets in the 80's on a supercharged motor is frightening to me. I'd like to see their data from the dyno re air fuel ratio. Sorry about your season.

Maybe Ccan will sell his engines to you: they've been engineered and engineered and....well, you know.
Seriously, they're great folks and I admire their work!
Thanks for turning me on to Owens earlier this year. Just got done with a nice Dyno sesion on the new engine for my Magnum. Learned a lot and never felt money get taken out of my pocket so smoothly, but if the dyno numbers are correct. It will be worth it.
