Whats the most horsepower that someone has in their boat that runs on pump gas?That has gone at least 50 HRS or more without blowing up.

I would love to have some of those. Dustin is telling me mine should make 1300 on pump fuel. That sounds a little optimistic to me, I'll be happy with anything over 1200. Should know in about a month.
We know there are people making approx 1200 with big chief heads and roots blowers.So if the Quad-rotors make an addition 100-150hp as claimed 1300-1350 maybe.

Gatorone has 1200 Eikerts now and is putting the Quad-rotors on this winter.KE should be able to get about as much as anyone and make them live, I would think.

Reliablely I think that right now around 1150 -1200 hp on pump gas. But with the new technology on turbos and people finally getting into turbos we should be able to get close to 1500 on pump gas. That is hot right there 1500 such a nice number too. BBC seem to need to have the rockers and lifters replaced after 50-75 hours. That is the only draw back on them.
