a regular 388 was never designed to do those #'s
again being " special " the bottom was done to handle that power because they set out to do the record speed back then
just imagine a tranny locking up at 140 +
as i was told - good thing they knew how to run a boat

it was around for a while
388 's tend to linger a while
but when they first came out they were hot !!

They had 598s in the 38 that made about 1320hp.They dynoed the motors on 3 different occassions at Zuls.They built 714s for the 44 that made around the same power with an a s s h o l e full of torque.The 44 turned out to be a bomb.
