And by the way, I am going to be selling her in a month or so. I just had the motors redone by Keith Eickert, drives rebuilt, new lowers with nosecones, labbed 30's and 28's, and the boat is getting clearcoated again in a month just because it makes it look like brand new!!

May be interested in going into a T/S. Should have bought one to begin with. Got anyone for mine?

We have 525 in our Gladiator and we've seen 87. I say it's a go. Happy Cruising

d-hlaw's Gladiator will do 94 all day long with 500's. Why the big difference ?

I have a 2003 Top Gun w/525's ITS and saw 87mph out of the box. The engines do everything right. They run, sound and perform perfect. No fouled plugs after 60 hrs.

It runs 85 on warmer days.

In everyones opinion, how fast will the boat be at 90 degrees and 90% humidity? That is what it is all summer in Ga.

Talking

90 x 90 = 180 (2) % @ 90+ 287 & 64% = 85 MPH

My calculations say it'll run 85 mph in the heat of Summer if I'm driving. If your at the wheel 81 mph. That should be real close. GET THE 525'S YOU ^%$^%$&^$! BH
