A Bravo is a Bravo..... a six drive is a six drive..and, while the aftermarket guys beef up the Bravos.....they all might as well be made out of plastic when compared to a six.

We will work with you to build a very reliable package. We have some 750 naturally aspirated engines that have over 400 hrs on them. Jassman's boat is at paint, and will be out in a few weeks. His engines made 745 hp @5400 w/ wet exhaust and mufflers. His engines were designed to be extremely reliable. The EFI systems compensate for most conditions, and have a fail-safe mode, which will add fuel and reduce timing in the event a problem occurs. We will also be working with a few major magazines on projects in 2004, and could probably use your boat as a feature. Give me a call if we can help you in any way.

Thanks,

Steve

I want more power than the 525 and 575, plus the 900sc is being faded out. I went through this over and over again and decided to ask everyone to get some good info...Ths has been a tremendous help

I am going to call all the builders and se what kind of pricing I am in for then get back to Mike and Paul with what I find out...Tomorrow I plan on calling Pfaff, Sterling, and maybe 1 or 2 more if I have the time. I spoke with Total Marine Performance and Tommy at Chief about some previous work I had done.

I shot the 900sc#6 package to Mike 2 days ago and decided to keep looking for something different...

Trout, I am between TX and So Cal and we have nothing down in TX but tumbleweed and cowboys

We own a trucking company so I can put the boat on a stepdeck and send it anywhere in the country...I just want the best motor for the dollar that won't break every time we go out or be a maintenance nightmare.

Already corrected - see post #28, but thanks for the clarification anyway. I was SURE that Mike told me that he had been involved in those engines somehow....

Bora-Bora, huh? Post some pics for us less fortunate ones, please.

Try the Total Marine Guys, Steve and Eddie, 954-649-9888.

The motors going in my 4300 Nortech were built for reliability, I'm tired of tinkering and just want to have a good time this year hitting as many poker runs as possible.

599 C.I. Dart [email protected]@4500
Idle.750rpms...WOT 5500.

Lunati Pro race crank
Oliver billet rods
JE Forged pistons
Dart pro 1 fully ported and hand polished heads
crane hyd. roller cam and hardware
custom 14qt oil pan
custom built multi port FI
2000 cfm billet throttle body
MSD ignition

And a 1 year warranty, with proof of oil changes every 10-15 hours, which is what I do anyways. If I had the video of them running on the Dyno, I would put it on here for you guys. Jeff
