It just so happens that there are a bunch of guys down there that "aren't right"



You have to remember that this is a 598 with pretty decent sized cnc heads. The 4L is an awesome blower. I think it's one of , if not the best blower they build. The same engine with a 5L, a little more cam and 12 psi of boost with be all over 1300 hp.

Pretty impressive. I have Teague 565 CI motors in my boat with 5 litre blowers at 12 lbs of boost, CNC heads, hyd roller cam and they certainly don't make near 1,300 HP

He runs a really low compression though. I believe that Teague has an engine with a 5L that makes well over 1300 hp. Not exactly sure of the boost and compression though. You would be surprised how high my compression is.

It certainly was that way. Not any more though. We put the drives back in the water instead of 3 feet above the keel
I actually just got back from running it.
