Wow Guys, great info !

I saw Mike Pyle's boat on a website - very trick engines and looked great but nothing was mentioned of top speed.

I can imagine that the 320HP 350's would work well with whipples, if I could get over 100mph with a setup like that in a 28' eliminator that would be awesome. Does anyone know how well the 320HP 350's can hold up long term to the whipple setup ? I have a 350 (348) LS1 engine in my 2001 Camaro SS that can take a hell of a pounding as long as it is maintained well. I would think about 470-500HP out of that motor would be pretty reliable and really move. It's either that or twin 425 HO's but the price would be more and I'm not sure how balanced a 28' CAT would be with twin big blocks. Anyone know what the best outdrive is that can be purchased on the 320HP 350's ?

I Run A 2003 28 Daytona. The Boat Was Delivered With 496ho, 1.35 Bravo Xr, Imco Extension, 30p Lab Bravos. Eliminator Claimed 92 Mph At Lake Elissinore In Cali. Boat Would Run 88.7 On Gps With A Light Load. This Is Under Real Operating Conditions(full Interior, Passengers, Etc).i Recently Installed 620hp 511 Ci Bowties And Now Have A Real Boat. The Hull Handles Big Water Excellent And Is Perfectly Balanced With The Big Blocks. The Boat Runs 108+ With The 30p Bravos Full Fuel, Full Cabin, 4 Passengers. I Feel After Having Made The Mistake Of Originally Equipping The Boat With Mild Mercrusier Power That I Wasted A Lot Of Time And Money. This Hull Needs 600+ Hp Per Motor To Deliver The Hair-raising Performance You Deserve!

fastcash,

I have heard claims as high as 97 with twin 496mag ho's. I also hear that the extension boxes are a must on the 28 with big blocks. I'd put whipples on the 496's and get 600hp each out of them after I had the boat a while.

Wondering how triple 300x's would run ?

Ny,
They Do Claim Up To 97 Mph With 496s, Extensions, Labs, Etc. I Don't Know What Kind Of Truck They Use To Haul The Boat Up To These Speeds, But I Would Sure Like To See It!!!!! The 496 Just Does Not Have Enough Muster To Bring This Hull To Life. The Boat Is Sluggish On Plane And Takes A Long Time To Accelerate To The Big Number. The Craftmenship Of The Hull And The Tooling Are Awesome. My Experience Is That This Hull Needs Bigger Power To Give The Performance We All Want.

Bob Leach, one hour ago, backed up FASTCASH says and showed me pics of the guages. Quite the boat! I am looking at the 28 with twin 496's. No extensions or labbed props but for me but I'm not a top speed kinda guy.
