Default I can live without catalyst and emissions systems!

Powerabout:

Mercury already has engines available with Catalytic converters to meet the 2010 thru 2012 requirements.
Raylar won't be building or supplying any catalyst equipped engines to the market now or in the future as we don't supply engines for new boats.
Raylar will focus and concentrate only on the repower and upgrade market.
Let the big boys have the new boat market.

Best Regards,
Ray @ Raylar

The best speed seen on mine so far is 114 but pretty sure there is more there. It would be nice to get to the high teens. During out last prop testing this fall it took about 12 seconds to get from 35mph to 110.
wow are you at 1300 hp, your prop shaft height to keel is?? hope you hit it my new 28 saber will be about 5000lbs or a lil more with the konrad ace we started at 3'' below keel no steps or notch but has a box. hoping for 100 plus, not sure what motor will dyno at hoping 1100hp.

I think would be great since they rate them at 800hp and with the turbo being a lil lite on tq getting on plane verses a blower. them konrads are beefy love the look of my konrad ace drive. I am running 5000lb boat with between 1000 and 1100hp.

Check300 is at 1,500 hp.

Drive depth is close to a bravo for a single #6 and the way it likes to run. Pretty deep compared to a twin #6 boat where the props run the sufrace.

Question Who Got Dat Money!

No, not really, most are just out figuring what bank they plan to rob to hopefully come up with the $200K or so it will cost to buy each one! HA!
Were talking a very limited buyer group, can you say less than 1%.

Best Regards,
Ray @ Raylar

Does your pd sc reach full boost at 3000rpms? Small torque range? Our engine is over 1000 ft lbs from 2200 rpms on up.
Not to rain on dustins parade but theres really no whipple charger drag cars. Whipples are great for the street because of instant boost. Offshore boats arent dragboats. Turbos would be very hard to make work in drag boats, but lets see a whipple make over 2000hp. Whipple makes a great unit just about for any new model car. The bottom line is if you want to make the most horsepower on gasoline, the turbo is the ticket.
