Default Turbine Warlock Project

This project has been in progress for a little over a year now from the point of conception. I wanted to be at least knee deep into it before I started the thread on the project.
This is my second project of a over the top restoration and my first Turbine Powered project. The first project "Drag "N" Fever" was suppose to be a Turbine powered project but things just didn't work out that way but was still a work of art.
This project is a 2001 WARLOCK 25 SXC CAT that run a honest 85 MPH with a Mercury 500 HP Blue factory race engine and a Bravo drive with extension box and IMCO lower. It will now be powered with a T-53 Custom Turbine Engine from Jim Grasham of Principal Propulsion Systems, "PPS", Driving a Custom Arneson ASD-8 through a SCS gear box.

Photos to come. The system will not let me post until I have made 10 posts.

This project is not about speed as much as it is about being a cool turbine project.

Top calculated speed with available HP and Torque would be around 180 MPH.

The top somewhat safe speed will be in the 110 to 120 range.
