thanks guys,

I just say donzi 22zx or baja h2x because I am not liking the looks ofr the outlaw 24 compared to the newer outlaws it looks a little dated (still very nice)

and the outlaw 25 the newer look is way too pricey! so the zx and h2x kinda seemed a happy medium as far as price and ride and power goes. Looking for something to run high 60's to 70 so like was mentioned I'd relaly like to find a zx with a 454 mag.

I have a 98 22Zx with a 496HO, bought it a year and a half ago. Great boat, haven't found top speed yet, mostly because every time we go out, there's 4 of us in the boat.

I bought it from the original owner. It originally had a 454, but it wasn't fast enough for him. He had a 496HO dropped into it in 2002. Never used it much after that, it had 120 hours in 2009, when I bought it. Absolute garage queen..
Interior, exterior is perfect, everyone thinks it is brand new.

The H2x is a nice introductory boat to the sport boat thing. After racing and fishing for years with HP outboards, I became very familiar with hull technology. The H2x has the most efficient bottom of any Baja I have seen. It has 3 strakes per side, flat chines and a small delta pad. It does not have a notch pad. Mine ran 62 GPS with the stock 7.4MPI, which I found a little boring after running 120 in a drag boat.
A Procharger took it to 72; small blower motor (B&M 250 on a 454, est 600HP) took it to 82/83 GPS. A friend with a similar setup (502/250 B&M) installed an extension box on his and ran very close to 90. You'll need hydraulic steering over 75.
The boat is nicely laid out and has a decent cuddy for it's size. The ride seemed very nice for it's size. I prefered the styling of the performance series better than the boxy traditional Outlaws, but that is a personal thing. The fairing is (vs the tall windshield) is pretty cool too.
Donzis are obviously great boats too. I would ride in and drive both.
Regards,
Steve
