What are the savings with going with 1100s vs 1350s? I know the 1100s can be dual cal 1100/1350 but gosh when spending that type of money wouldn't you want to just go for the 1350 or 1350/1550s?

Is there a big price or service advantage to the 1100s? I assume they're 99% the same with perhaps different turbo parts to get the power difference. Not that a 36 or 38 Skater with 1100s wouldn't be plenty fast...Maybe I just answered my own question.

Another boat though where I thought the same thing on was Jet, the SC46 OL. 1100/1350s instead of 1350s. Head scratching for me but maybe I'm just like that.

Not sure but I believe the maintenance intervals are a bit easier on the 1100s and you can get away with the M6 vs the M8 with the 1100.

If Pete had his way, every 368/388/40/438 would go out of Skater with 1100s. The boats are plenty fast with that power, and the 1100s are more reliable than the 1350s. It's not a matter of cost, as I don't believe there's much difference between the two. The 1100s also run on 89 octane, so if 91/93 isn't available, it's not a problem. I've spent time in 1100 powered Skaters and they run awesome! Rumor has it that Matt Rice's new 438/1100 rig has already run well into the 150s, and they think they'll get 160 out of it by the time it's 100% dialed-in. No reason for bigger power unless you're in a 46 imo.

I believe the biggest reason for 1100's is the ability to run 89 as mentioned

Good info thanks guys. No doubt 1100s are plenty fast enough in any such hull. I guess it would be a bragging rights thing, and maybe the ability to crack the 170+ mark. But that's completely ludicrous for 99% of owners.

The last 368 (widened) that Ronnie had built (and sold) cracked 170 with 1100s......just sayin'.

Dale- that 368 only had a wider cockpit, or are you referring to his 388 that was widened?

I know Pyburn ran the 1st ever 388 with 1100s to something like 171-172.

on the situation on Jet. Why would you not want dual cal 1100/1350's would you not want the ability to run in 89 octane mode if that is all you can get for fuel?
1100's and 1350's are pretty much the same other than throttle bodies and calibration
1350/1550 is another animal in many ways than a 1350 or 1100/1350.
If you have no intention on ever running race gas to use the 1550 mode or intentions of wanting to go that fast why would you spend the extra money for 1550's
