Maybe you need glasses.

Lets see banks kit had:
carb before turbos
intercooler after turbos
intercooler on top of manifold
exhaust manifolds

K E's had:
throttle bodies before turbos
intercooler after turbos
intercooler on top of manifold
exhaust manifolds

hummmmmmm
sounds the same to me.

A custom engine would have:
headers
cool sheet metal intake
throttle bodies on the manifold
intercooler separate from the motor
trick tubing

Doesn't sound like an old banks kit to me.
At least banks kits had a little tubing. Those have none.

Sweet numbers!

I was at the shootout last year and watched you run. That must have some serious power to run that fast with no gear in that short of distance.

How much does that old boat weigh? Why no gear?

So turbomotors may well be the future, but not just in gasoline motors.
Do you Know the CI or some specs of what Leon's building and how close he is to lighting them off?

Derebery's engines are 650+ci. I cant remember exactly. The boat wont be done for a while and the engines are going through a lot of fabrication. Lets just say the final numbers are going to be up there.

All I know is, I've been to 115 on a 388 with 675 KE and Arnesons. 130 from 850s doesn't sound that far off, if you have the balls for it.

I'd say the KE stuff more resembles the Gentry items that Carson is making.

Rik you are correct eickert got that setup from carson B. and most parts are from the gentry setup.. eickert built these the way hustler wanted them.. he is designing a new twin turbo setup but it probably will not be COOL because it does not have 40 foot of tubing and a intercooler in the cabin

A common challenge in building motor packages for boats is the space confinements; height and width. KE attempted to keep the height to a minimum and the package as narrow as possible. While we have seen some wild pics of some high tech turbo projects which made tremendous power, most would not fit in a boat. Keep the width down and you install in stagger and side by side installations. Keep the height down, you possibly eliminate the need for a custom hatch. KE has been down the engine marketing road at least a couple times in his career KE does however have a couple different versions coming down the road that are more technologically advanced and will no doubt make more power
