Superboat and Kryptonite would probably run very well with a 496 as well.

Thanks for the compliment. I think some parameters need to be set to determine the fastest. Are we talking flat out drag on flat water? mixed conditions? big water? Length? weight?

Here's a few. Merc specs say that the 496 is only 1 inch taller than the old motors, it's more like 3". I'm having hatch clearance issues. I JUST made the forward clearance too.

82 is screaming! I'm thinking I'm gonna have about 78.
