When Dustin's engines get to 2500hp let the rest of us know!

You are right-Sean is a infamous character.His story keeps growing every time he tells it.I was at LOTO last year and saw the boat run 136 i believe.It looked ill handeling to me at that speed and i was told by Ricky Ford who throttled it "I'm done."

Sorry you asked for it with that title. This is in a 21 daytona v-drive that is used to waterski behind and is on its third season.
And again, how much boost? So it spends 90% of its life at part throttle in a 21' boat?

I mean no disrespect but, you titled the thread "Eat Your Hearts Out Turbos". You have said, more than once, this engine has more power. It is effortless on the throttle but, is it effortless on reliability? It is amazing that it will make that kind of horsepower but, will it live or does it have to freshened frequently?

If you are looking for drive train contact Freedom US1 or Brad Smith about transmissions. Drives...Rik at Arneson Industries comes to mind very quickly.

Wow! Looks like it took 20 seconds to go from 55 to 110. Sure didn't notice any lag there. Have you guys tried more prop? Seems like it would go quite a bit faster based on the rate of acceleration. Idle video was pretty impressive too.

I'd love to try a bigger pitch prop but right now I'm using a three blade and there aren't very many of those around.

That is at like 20lbs of boost and it runs on pump e85 and the owner drives the boat like he stole it.
