Here is some of Jims at PPS Turbines.

A t53 weighs in at a cool 486lbs and these 13,s make 1500hp
My psi 557 chevys weighed close to 1100 each.


How you doing..............?

Would you like too run your exhaust closer to the transom?
How about some shaft drives like Arnesons or BPM?
Put those junk sixes in the classifieds.


No need for drop boxes or if you like still use them so you can change the gears in them and stick with one 5axis propeller.
Drive shaft runs right under turbine and right out the boat.

I don't think the people like you very much if you were quoted those prices.
