Anyone else hearing they may have to put the Kilo attempt on hold for a while to make the necessary modifications?

I thought it was reported that this boat was running 160-165 at half throttle? 175 seems un-impressive if initial reports were true?

what did the OL have that broke the record? Hopped up 1650ís? 1800 hp?

the fountain has 200-300 more HP? And itís only seeing 175? Iím confused?

The OL record boat ran 1650 engines that were pulled from a 52 OL

1650's were from Scotto's boat... yes less power and broke the record.

Lots of hype and chest pounding until the Fountain finds speed - def. has power
