No, My 1500's make 1349 on the dyno set up on 93 octane and 7lbs of boost, 1489 on 110 octane with 12 lbs of boost, and 1582 on 116 with 18lbs of boost

Depends on the Dyno, Sterlings Dyno seems to be a little generous compared to the ones I have seen their motors on.
Also, I don't think Sterling builds a 1550. They build a 1500, that everyone calls a 1550. But I believe Mike calls it a 1500. So this just makes the variable seem worse than it might be.

Posted the link to this update in a separate thread, but for those returning to this one, here you go, http://speedonthewater.com/new-boats...-tailpipe.html.

At this level of high-performance boat building, delays are not uncommon.
