It was a pfaff motor on premium 1100hp believe it would run about 1300 with 110 octane. We were using b-max drives and took out 5 that year our poor xr held together as the spare without one issue. It ran it's fastest speed with the xr the bmax dropped the speeds by at least 10mph. Bmax 117-118

Those 25's are a light fast hull. Wouldn't want to hit much of a wave though.

So, how fast would you say 900 hp would push a 27' Daytona? I've heard they run about 118 on a good day with 900 hp. Looking at the #'s, they claim 650 hp to reach 100 then the #'s agree on 118 for 900 hp.

Sounds perfect to me. Got a couple buddies running 27 based hulls and they are all around 900 hp running in those speeds. Who knows for sure every one seems to lie haha. Also depends on year of 27 hull some are faster even though some say there's no change.

I believe I called you and talked to you about running a surface drive on it. Wish we would have went that routenbut the transom was already cut and prepped for mercury style drives. And the bravo replacement you sell wouldn't make the rating of torque and hp.
