Good morning, Just got back from the river.Do you have the delta or radiused keel bottom? Rideplate and shoe? What kind of loader? Did you dyno the engine?
I believe its the radiused keel it the faster bottom of the two, no ride plate or shoe, it has a ramp style loader from MPD, no dyno but was built for just under 600 hp,here's the deal on the boat i picked it up as an theft recovery, so far as i know Jack at MPD built the pump and a place called Magic Motors built the motor.Had to rewirer the boat because when they stole the intake they cut all the wires.but before they stole the intake off the boat it was running two 750's on a tunnel ram,hope this helps a little. Thanks
My brothers 75 is running 99.4 on gps in 1000ft, with a blown 540 chevy. It has a delta inlet and the intake had never been out of the boat until last month. We are currently installing a tapered shoe.
The boat ran 89 with a NA 468 which we estimate to be about 600 HP.
Stainless Berkeley A impeller, stock split bowl, 6 inch straight bowl extension, 4 degree wedge, manual place diverter with no nozzle insert.
The back seat and one gunnel tank were removed at the time.
When I first started at Eliminator I ran an 18 bubbledeck with a 496 BBC, shoe, rideplate, droop snoot and a delta bottom ,the boat ran in the mid to low 90's. Actually the delta bottom worked better than the radiused keel boat in drag race conditions.As soon as the water got rough the radiused keel was the better boat.
