This is an interesting question. There are other things to consider, tranys, drives, and general abuse of a boat that goes that fast. Very fast boats are VERY cool. But they are also VERY maintenance intensive. Personally I like the gas & go aspect of my boat. I know my boat is slow (75), but in the big picture,I don't get beat very often, and I spend more time boating and less hatch time.

proven power with blown setups and great punch. i run them harder than most people and have good results. great torque curves on the dyno and boats need lots of torque
