Jack,
The 800's are SC's (super charged)... 95 sounds like a very feasible number.

The new engines they tossed in are not super charged engines, they're naturally aspirated (NA)... they won't have the torque to pull the boat up past 90 IMO.

My 2 cents.
If you've only got $.02, use them wizely. I PERSONALLY have been in that boat MANY times on lake Michigan, and I know for fact that I have seen 95-96 on the speedo. I have also ran side by side with them, and my GPS also showed 95-96. The GPS's can't be wrong. To pull away, I needed to run atleast 97-98. And BTW, the 800 SC's only make a touch over 700 hp, but they make 800 #'s of torque. I have the build sheets on the new motors, 580 inches of top quality components. And I also have the dyno sheets at our shop. From what I remember, they made 692 hp at about 5400 or 5500, and 680 torque at 4200 take or leave a couple #'s. They're only losing 20 hp per side, but 100 # on the torque. I am SURE they will only see a 2-3 MPH loss from the 800 SC's.

And another BIG BTW: I KNOW you would'nt have such smarta$$ comments toward Ben, if he was lookin you in the eye. Remember, be careful what you say, because someday, you just might have that chance. S T R A N G E things are happening!#*!#*

Isn't there some confusion here.....

Looks like some people are talking about NATURALlY ASPIRATED engines (NA) meaning without blowers or turbos. Like the one's Mark and Lucy just put in the boat.

Then some other people are calling the Merc 800SC's Naturally Aspirated (NA) which they obviously are not since they are blown.

Don't want to get in the middle but I think there is some confusion here.

NA = No blowers. (See my avatar)
SC = Blowers.

I know you all know this already. Maybe I am confused...

I'm out.

So Mr. know so much,
If the boat ran 95 with the 800SC's, you think it will still run 95 with the new NA motors? NO! Like you and I both stated, it will loss some speed. I guessed a 5 mph loss, you guessed 3mph... regardless, the point I made was the boat will not do the same speed (95) that it did with the SC engines! Reread the thread before you spout out more crap!

And another BIG BTW: I WOULD tell Ben he should be in the big house for life for his crimes and I'd happily say it to his face and not think twice about it! I hope I never do have the chance to say anything to his face, not because I'm in the least bit afraid of him, but because I think he should rot in the can for his crimes. IMO he should face up to the crimes he's commited and not cry about it. That's MY opinion, you obviously have yours and that's fine. Go sell some "free Ben" Tee shirts if that's how you feel. Good luck. BUT, that's not what thread is about.


Sorry Lucy, I didn't want to chit on your thread.
