Oh yeah, I have 675 Chiefs in my '96 Gun, only 30ish hrs. They are strong as death and I trust Tommy fully to repair/replace anything.

Hey eyezlee- My fault ( the starboard ignition switch went out). They (GRDA) were loving the boat though!

Dart CNC'd heads

Jessel valve train
Blower Shop CNC'd billet super chargers

Greg (CASHBAR),
I'll give you a call today. Hopefully we're out of here next Sat. SeaRay leaves this Thurs.

Steve David,
How are you and the family? Sorry we haven't gotten together while we've been down here, but I didn't realize how busy I would be getting the boat put together and planning the wedding and all. Good luck racing this season.

Albert,
I know about the busy part. I feel like I have a fulltime job at Tommy's just getting my own boat put together.

Robert

I know one thing Jack Clark at Jaguar speaks VERY highly of Chief Engines.
