Have not had achance to really air it out , but I can tell you before 3,500 at 42mph, now 3,500 at close to 60mph.
As far as hatch (knew about the problem) ended up cutting hatch breathers stick out 3" at the back spaced the pad 3/4"let the cushon hide the rest didnt look bad at all. Will be working on cleaner look hatch this summer.......anybody got any Ideas

You will probably need to build a raised hatch. My factory hatch also has pans underneath for additional clearance, with no scoops to clutter the sun pad. I can send you detailed pics if you need them or I'll be in Destin for 4th July weekend. Come on by at Crab Island and check it out.

I'm surprised at your low RPM performance with 3-blades turning inward. Sounds like its got plenty of potential. The paint looks great.

Well I used non competition intakes so I gained about 1.5" over most other blower applications.Not sticking out the hatch bad maybe 2"...... Not 100% on that speed & RPM probably less than more. I didnt think we were going that fast ,everyone in the boat said we were,but 30mph on water is fast to people that dont drive that all the time.............................Wanting to go the 4th will definately look for ya......cant miss me My BOAT IS LOOUUDD!!!! NICE RIDE you got there
