Default Strongest Drive??

My motor dynoed at 1150 hp with 1100 ft lb's of torque from 3500 up. I currently have an IMCO SC. Is this the strongest drive out there without a tranny?

WOW, that is a loaded question. It is so hard to recommend a drive without a transmission for that HP. I have heard the good and bad. It really has a lot to do with your boat/driving.../throttling skills. I would simply recommend that you baby what ever drive you have or end up with!

I do not think there is any outdrive that can handle that Hp except the obvious expensive choices with tansmissions.
