Default where can I get heavy duty bravo parts ?

A friend has a 38 fountain we're putting 650-700 hp into and don't want to blow the drives . We want to install the parts ourselfs. Where can I buy them , and who makes the best parts ? Dont' need shorter lowers or anything wild . Just strong internal parts . I have herd or Imco, and the bravo shop etc. What and WHo is the best ? Thank you ,JOE

I've been running that much thru stock bravos for over 50 hrs in a 38 sport cruiser (about 12,500 lbs). I chose to spin the engines a little harder rather than substantially increase prop pitch. Never a problem but now that I've said that I'll start saving for a new drive.

I personally like the Imco products because of their great service, innovations, and dedication to making products stronger but more importantly safer. Great bunch of people despite being from the left coast!

Check with some of the west coast people and Im sure they will tell you to give Max Factory a call, They put out good parts.. ask as to who stands behind their stuff.
But if you just want to bolt on the drives and forget about them,Call B-Max...

Teague, Imco, Max machine worx have parts and kits, check with them on their warrantys, because they all are different, also look at Bam marine I think Marc is starting to carry some upgrade kits and he has all the tools needed to setup the drive, he is also a member of OSO www.go-fast.com another place to look at is Alco marine in lake havasu they have a lot of great stuff also phone # is 928 8552370 they have xr upgrades kits to fit the bravo1 and stronger shafts and bearings, good luck
