Props In or Out? Looking at the vid the tails are shooting to the middle, in my head spinng out would throw water up towards the middle, but just curious.

Absolutely awesome package. I saw it at the dockas at Dog Days at the shootout. Just an observation in the video the water pressure seems to be around 45 to 50 lbs when runnig at 5500 rpm. Is that too much water pressure.

Yep..
We changed props and it made the boat handle different and the water pressure go real high.
After watching the video were lucky we have not blown the gaskets yet or the water pump. Or broke the needle off the gauge when it swings around and bottoms out

Funny...I was thinking the same thing. I just don't understand why people use Merc drives on high hp/torque motors.

Those pulleys drive our hidden superchargers... The turbos are just there for looks.... Turbos don't really work in boats...

Hey Tyson, just a thought.....I noticed in the vid that the water pressure was spiking on the inside engine in a turn. I like to run a 1 1/4" hose from the port to the starboard strainer to stop the pressure spikes. It really works well and stops all the needle jumping and high pressure spikes not only when turning, but if one pickup hits the water and the other is out of the water. Looks great. Very nice work.
