Would love to have bravo's. But the cost to convert would be close to $10,000 - per Danny. Would have to glass transem and the old drives aren't worth much.
The current drives work and work well. I will probobly say with them until I break one.

But you are right, the ride is probobly a hell of alot better with bravos as well as parts and props, but I can'y jusitify the added cost to this old of a boat right now.

stellings sells a TRS to Bravo conversion box that bolts to the outside of the TRS gimbal and the bravo bolts right into the other end. I think they are pretty pricey though

I'd venture to argue about the bravo's, If your trs isn't broke don't change it. Other than the few mph you may pick up The trs is a good, smooth shifting long lasting drive and with small blocks it'll prolly last forever. Plus Moving your motors back would change the whole way that boat is balanced. my.02

TRS??? I'm running 'Stern Powr' MX-07's - old racing drives. Very similiar to drive shown at: www.jtmperformancemarine.com/photogallery.htm

These things are massive and have a massive hole cut-thru at the transem. No conversion kits that I know of.
I think the $10,000 I spoke about above is pretty close to a change out for me

Man, that purple sure lights up in the flash of the camera! Like the Stones sang in the sixties, I see a purple door and I wanna paint it black.
