Tommy- that boat is awesome. You should have a lot of fun this summer. I vote for the stock look also.

looks great but the lettering on the windscreen is the wrong font,correct for the Carrera is the style you have everywhere else on the boat.
I had a local vinyl shop redo mine , it was only about $60..

you might also look into getting some "Windaways"
or making your own like I did unless you like wind hitting you square in the face at 80mph

Cant say,I have no experience with OMC drives and where the X dim on those is.
I know twin 350/400hp Tempest (Mercury) 27s ran 80-82.
You should have more power but again drive can make the difference and I have no experience with OMC drives.
Right now I am at 78 with a single blown bigblock/Bravo , hope to break 80 once I tune it.
Isnt easy in a 6000lb old school Carrera but it sure is fun..
