    talk to your guys about an LS. That’s what those 600HP egg beaters have. The LS platform stock, out of a junkyard with China turbos are holding together with 10 psi boost pushing out some great HP. Google them.

    Musk’s favorite movie. He talks about the movie and Ludicrous speed often.

    Thats more than I burned. I think you are into the secondaries more than I would have been. I cruised at 22 MPH and burned 9.5 gph. We will see. I need an engine for my PH project anyway. My 351 will go there.

    I just ran 48 miles round trip and trolled for 41 miles with 3 people and all my gear plus 250lb of ice. The average speed running was about 22knots at 3-3100 rpm and trolling was around 5knots, ocean conditions were 3-5’ ground swell from Isaias total fuel burn for the day was 35 gallons. If i remember correctly 26 gallons for running and 9 gallons for trolling

    Except for the enclosure and the tower, the same boat. With my 383 in my 26 I ran 30 MPH wot. Cruise was about 22 and that was most likely at 3000 RPM. I'm going with the aluminum heads to get the higher compression and burn the 93 octane fuel. Longer burn, longer push, more power. Also less weight. FI also as long as I'm doing it. No tuning and carb guys are hard to find. Also better fuel economy. Just leave the cam to the engine builder. Thats what he does. I told him what I want, he says he can deliver. Will have it dynoed. Bringing him my engine this week.

    S. rebel. Thats what I'm talking about. What has been done to your 383? What boat do you have, exactly. Tower, enclosure, outriggers, etc. I would love to cruise at 25 Knots, or even 25 MPH. Positive proof it can be done. I actually had a long talk at the engine shop today. Take my 383, FI, aluminum heads, custom grind cam, higher compression and I will have what I want. My 351 is running perfectly so I won't make the switch til winter, but its going to happen.
    Fairly plain 383 with a 600cfm Edelbrock carb, i stripped the bottom over the winter and barrier coated a long with new Pacifica plus bottom paint. I have a over built aluminum hard top that is not the lightest or most aerodynamic thing. There is 600’ of 1/2 rode in the bow along with a few hundred lbs of tackle and tools on board, i do not have any canvas on the boat and there is a set of 18’ Lee jr wishbone style riggers Click image for larger version

    These guys are local to me and I've used them in the past for custom cams.
    They also know they're stuff on marine cams.

    Jerry, with our HT (which is heavily loaded) and 3 people we do 24 to 25 mph at 3700 rpm, top speed is 32.5 to 33 @4800 rpm, depending on the water currents.
