You should contact Fred at Konrad about this. I think the inner transom plate is different enough that it may NOT work, but i don't know.

Hi Payton,

The folks at Konrad are seeing about 2 mph over the standard lowers during "apples to apples" testing. They are the same height as the standard lowers. It should be interesting as I have also changed prop rotation to spin inboard, therefore I should not have to trim out as much and also benefit from the new gearcase design.

I can't wait! Come on spring!

Just trailer over by us, or even to Florida, we can't wait that long. Jeff

These things look great. How much does a drive with the new lower cost.
