the coan is a upgraded powerglide, which they have been using in race car applications for years, has new case, etc. believe they are set up 1.5/1, 1/1, He is wanting to get them in a big cat to see if they will hold up, Very nice guy. not near the animal Jimmy and Tyson have, believe in the 6-7k range

Thanks

We wish Coan's the best. All we can offer is what we have proven to work in a 46 Skater that breaks things. 316-648-2414. ( 12000.00 ea.) That's right. We're not the cheapest.

I am running 950 Horsepower Keith Eickertís in my 32 Skater. The low gear in the Coan transmission is a 1.82.1 gear ratio. The reverse gear ratio is a 1.61.1. By utilizing the low gear I was able to get on plane quicker and run a bigger prop for a faster cruising speed and better top end speed. The low gear also works great around the dock slowing the boat down for easier maneuverability. Coan rates the transmission up to 2,000 horsepower. If you have any questions on the transmission please give Dave Coan a call at 765-456-3957.

Turboes really seem like the way to go. They pretty much have them figured out in the drag racing community.

Just check out some of the NMCA classes. Outlaw 10.5, Drag radial etc. You've got cars with dot drag radials runnning 6.90's @200 + mph.

We run a fox body mustang w/single 92mm turbo and 347ci in NMRA true street.At 3600lbs our best time yet is [email protected] nice thing about turbos is how well they run under normal(street driving)conditions,but when you spool them up.....Look Out.The technology in the last 10 years has made them a perfect cross over to a marine application.
