At 1200hp, no real advantage and hard to pulley properly. SC's would almost run 1:1.

Any difference in running the blowers as the 5.0 or the 8.3.

If they go in the boat in the thread by LESSONLEARNED the drives are either Arnesons or BPMs. I don't think any Merc drive can hold that power.

Really comes down to rpm, some of the others are getting 1400+hp on pump gas and typically go 75-125hrs depending on the DC of the engine.

They're different big chiefs then most run and the cam is not very big considering the power.
