    And what are they hoping for top end? Won't that be the highest powered SC out there except for turbonator (which I can't seem to find anywhere)? And interior/cabin. Full blown normal luxery?

    Staggered and 6's. It could potentially run to about 120. I think it should hit around 110 without too much work. It won't have as much power as the old turbinator (i think he had 1450's), but is should run and handle with that boat. And yup, it'll have a full cabin and interior with all of the luxury!

    I forgot, but there was a guy in Michigan or Ohio (Fred Cerne I believe) who had a 43 (previous hull, but it was the twin step) and he had gellner 1200's side by side on 6's (wet sumps and crescent lowers though...) and I think that got up to 114 or so..... So another baseline to go from.

    One motor is on dyno now, working on dialing it in, having a fuel delivery issue that we are going to work on tonight, will let you guys know later. If I knew how to add pictures I would put some of the motors for viewing.

    Still waiting on the other cooler, they called one day last week but have not answered a return call or email since.

    It's easy Mike. When you finish typing your post, hit manage attachments, hit browse on one of the three boxes, double click on the one you want to uplaod, (you can do three per post), hit upload, then submit post.

    Hey Mike, if you are still having trouble posting pics, you can email them to me and I can post them if you like.

    I've met and been in Fred's boat I think. He owned a Sunoco distributorship or some thing like that? Think he was selling his BT and getting a Nor Tech but that was like 10 years ago (around last F2 race on Lake Erie time frame).

    I was riding with a buddy in a BT on race weekend Key West Poker Run when we blew a drive. Fred loaned us his truck and trailer to send someone back to Lauderdale for a spare drive, then come get the boat, put the drive on and tow it to KW.

    forgot to add- nice boat!! Not a flat deck or and I seeing the rendition wrong?

    Side by side with extended cockpit would be the ultimate IMHO. Give us some stuff on the speed/handling/etc but all that real estate in the cockpit is awesome!

    I really wish mine was the extended cockpit. But, with the trannies, can't do it unless you run extension boxes I believe.
