The Y2k that OCC JOE and TED G are talking was my boat, known AS Superbabi. Boat was a 2005, Blue Printed at the factory by RICK FX 10, left the factory with the first Merc 600 sci, Best we saw was 82-83 mph. Boat was upgraded with a Ron Potter 800 efi N/A Best we saw was 92-93, Great boat. Had to be real careful with the XR Drive, we had blown the xr two times, as OCCJOE was talking about, your going to need a upgraded drive to handle that Hp.Good Luck, The Y2K are one of The Best Looking Boats Out There.Gary

My y2k. I brought home a trophy form the Loto shootout this year. First time running in it. My new motor didn't get done in time so this is running my spare 540 motor with no time for prop testing. 82mph.

Nice vid!

Sorry I missed your question. The only prop work I had done was some cleaning up and that was near Wichita at The Prop Dock. I think Brett at BBlades is recommended more than anyone on OSO. May wanna ask some of the other LOTO folks.

I was a little curious about your video before you edited it and took that last statement off there . ( 82mph at 4700 rpm's and motor red lines at 6800 ) .. I have to know what cam and intake your running to be able to turn to 6800 ? Have you seen this pull on a dyno or did your builder just tell you 6800 red line ?

My new setup I will be spinning a 7k naturally aspirated with twin dominators , custom ground cam and some AFR 385's . Trying to hit close to 1000hp N/A .

A buddy of mine had my go pro and surprised me with the video and thought it redlined at 6800 for some reason. The new motor hits max torque at about 5300 to 5600. I saw the video and asked him to remove that last part. He does a awesome job of making these videos though!

Yes. I have two props that should be coming in today to try so well see. I don't see why I wouldn't be able to get low 90s out of the boat it i can get the slip number down. The good ole calculator is telling me if i can get it from 86 mph and 17 percent slip at 5000 down to 11 percent slip and get the rpms up 300 to 5300 I will be a 95mph. I see tearing the top end down and port and polishing in the near future. Also I'm running EMI thunder manifold exhaust right now so if anyone has exhaust laying around let me know.
