I've seen 80mph many times on my 99 33avs, 502mpi's, 30p Bravo 1s, gps. The only upgrades are Hardin flame arresters and Gil Offshore Big Guns. Powerboat tested the 33avs with Volvo 600's at 92.3mph.

My last boat was a 33 AVS w/ 500EFI's and extension boxes. Under ideal (low fuel, cool weather, etc) conditions with lab props, I hit 85 on GPS. Under normal operating conditions 82-83 on GPS. It was a great boat that I highly recommend!

You might be thinking about the 31' hull , not the AVS. A 31 ' with 502's will run 70-71

I ran a 01 33 AVS with a friend of mine. We could get 92-93 out of it with the Volvo 600's and volvo duoprop drives. Tweeked the motors a lil bit at innovation, and put stellings dry exhaust on it, other than that it was stock.
