The 525EFI would be the Bomb Exspensive, but closed cooling and SmartCraft .... nice

YES paint the boat white, get white seats and get the 525 ITS XR drives speed master lower's good prop's. Then next year put some color on it, it is a lot easyer to get the wife/girl to want to make it look better than to make it faster.

The setup I want for you should go low to mid 90's in that boat. 496's and B1's high 70's low 80's max.

I faced the same decision with our 37 Active Thunder. I would have gone with the 500s if I had the dough, instead went with the HOs.

Yeah, that rhymes

I did upgrade to the Bravo XZ drives to be ready for upgrades later. There are a lot of upgrades coming out for the 496HO that will give you more power for less than the upgrade to the 500s.
