I think that is a recipe for disaster. A motor has to have the right internals and be set up to handle boost what ever kind it is if it is not set up right as DS mentioned yes you will have reliability issues. Now with that being said as soon as you start make more HP lets say over 525 things will begin to ware differently and more maintenance is required its just as simple as that.
Sounds like I have been on your boat for 10-20% of its total hours from '05-'07. You aren't using it enough Scott!!! :laugher: Actually that is quite a few hours per season.dominator scott said:I'm at about 700HP per motor and the only problem I have is she runs a little fat so new plugs are in order every other season. But I would rather have it run a little fat then too lean and pop a motor.
Granted I am only at 56 hours since the motors were built back in the fall of 2005.
I know that my hours on his boat were great. You can't beat a 60+ mph CRUISE over 3 footers and then some amazing 95+ mph BLASTS. It is fun to watch other boat try to keep up.Hot'n'Bothered said:Yeah, but those are probably the best 56 hours of your life.
