We never got rid of the 100 mph hop, but we had no other props to test. The 2" and 1" spacers are not the way to go; they just kill speed.

The boat ran like a freight train all weekend:

NO PROBLEMS AT ALL - FAULTLESS!!!

Heartfelt thanks go to the folks who really made this happen:
  1. R'Addiction, for his unwavering friendship, great help and (most importantly) moral support and motivation. There's no way this would have happened without you, John.
  2. Ilmor High Performance, for an awesome package and amazing customer support. When I called them at 8:00 PM on Sunday night, they answered. They also called me back at 7:00 AM on Monday morning to give me the rest of the answers to my questions. Never, ever doubt this company's motivation.
  3. GlassDave Sikorski, for stepping up to the bat on a tricky project. (And even working the weekend...)
  4. Old School, for loaning me some expensive props, no questions asked.
  5. Bobby Moore, for the incredible amount of knowledge and advice he is willing to share.
  6. Brownie, for being like Bobby, but even funnier.
  7. The online supporters who kept me going.
  8. MobilMercMan, for a quiet word in my ear that saved me a LOT of trouble.
  9. JRapp, for pitching in every time he came by and for being a huge help at (and documenting) the first test.

Thanks for documenting the project.

Seems to have turned out great and it was a great read all the way from the beginning.

The dyno run is sweet as well.

You have come a long way from your early feelings about Ilmor products. ( as have I)

These packages are excellent and I wish you many safe years of enjoyment with it!
