So what kind of power do the 572's make? What speeds do you realistically expect?
Thank you Fred, they make 700 hp, 650 lb of torque , 85 to 90, will be doing a see trial tomorrow.

Don't, been there done that. Fred your boats too big and big fairly heavy straight V's need the operating range that only pressure gives ya. NOBODY would run blowers on these things if they didn't have to

I know this boat is light and efficient with the #3's but anything over 85mph will be guite an accomplishment with 1400 hp.

BTW I've tried 650 CI naturals trying to get away from blowers, great dyno #'s and sucked in the boat. NOBODY HATES BLOWERS MORE THAN ME

Jack,
I doubt they'll see 95 mph with the NA motors. I'd say they will be very lucky to break 90.

My 2 cents.

The unfortunate part of doing this for many years ( and writing the checks) is living with the results vs. the expectations. And as my father told me time and time again there is no such thing as magic......so far he has been right GPS's took the magic ( and some of the fun) out of performance boating....damn it

BTW My boat weighs under 10,000lbs. and when I add four of my fat buddys ( call it 900lbs over me and my wife) we only loose about 2 -3 mph on top end. Weight is a factor but....
