I would sure like to hear from the experts on this.

I've been reading, and have been told on numerous occasions, a 525efi ecm is not that easy to hack. So, unless they are using an after market ecm or have the Merc passcodes, how is this accomplished?
Whipple can modify the 525 ECM pretty easily

I in fact had wipple turn up the rev limit and timing on the computers on my 525's last year before Key West , this was not against any rules in a P class but it can be done with no problem by wipple.

New boat not quite ready for prime time. I'm sure they would have liked to run but it just wasn't in the cards.

Is there a site that shows how the classes are broken down by hull size/type, engines, etc?

My shootout/kilo engines are kept in-house and built/maintained by a very close friend & crew member that has his own engine business.
