Andy,
Thats one of the set of engines I was referring to in my posts, I think the other ones are in broken arrow? I'm not doubting the perf, hp or the reliability. what I was referring to were the people that just say blankety blank does this and so and so has a gazillion hp motor with 57 turbos in a fiat and beats everyone, but has no vids or anything to support their claims.

Also Brad Smith and Tyson build some really nice turbo packages also. They currently put a new skater together which I believe you will be seeing alot more of.

Cougarman,

Thankyou... that is some really cool stuff!!

Are there any of those (or others that are in a boat) that are making over the 1850 hp mark that Dustin is currently making?

Chris

P.S. How does the #6 do in a single application? I noticed that you are running a left handed prop in order to try to counteract engine torque...how does the boat handle?

I believe ( Chief Engines ) and (Brad Smith and Tyson ) have both built engines at that range or within about 100 hp if I'm correct. If not hopefully someone will correct me.

In regards to the photo's posted the checkmate has the most power 1,500 hp built by Earhart Engineering. He as been running that same engine since 1990 at those power levels.

For a long time the engine was not the prettiest, Function was priority. About a full two years ago the cosmetics was addressed which also improved the full package as well.

Meaning better Intake and better intercooler.

Ps. Tom Earhart has the same engine in his boat and same power level.
However its a SUPER Tall deck. Anyways a daily driver same as the Checkmate.
Tom has been building turbo engines for 25 years.

#6 drive works perfect on a single set up. Was there something specific your asking?


Thanks
Jon
