My 382 had Prochargers and the intercoolers were mounted where your installing the H/W heater. I didn't have H/W in my 382 but agree it will suck working back there later.

I had met him at Shack's years ago but didn't really know him. When I was shopping and saw him I re-introduced myself. I too was happy with the deal.

No idea. I'm probably one of the few that occasionally applies wax to the bottom. I do it because it makes a huge difference in how fast the bottom turns brown in our sediment filled rivers. I've...

I'm interested in a 370 and wouldn't want the diesels for the torque. Not that I don't agree that it's more important, it's just that a bravo drive and too much torque IS a problem. I found that out...

Do you know what "Whatever" ran when Stan owned it? Over 100 but I don't know by how much. I know John had to put the step back like it was originally to get it to run well with stock 500 back in it.

Yep, twin 540's/700 ft/lbs TQ. 32P bravos, 18-19%.........28P full size (15 5/8) maximus were 10.5%. Cruise speed increase was great (WOT speed dropped), but the drives didn't survive.

After prop experiments I went from 18-19% to 10.5% in a 382 Formula......and 10 hours later trashed an outdrive. Slip isn't always a bad thing :(

I didn't have fuel flow meters so I assumed the fastest speed at 3,500 rpms gave the best gpm???. Best I could tell the boat was burning 35-40 g/h at 3,500rpms (could have been slightly more?)
