I just bought a 03 crownline br 27ft with a 496 in it, has the bravo 3 drive. The guy i bought it from said his average top speed was 57 -58 mph, he said he has hit 60mph before with only 2 people on it and half a tank of gas. I have not been able to go faster then 48mph, is it possible that the props are dinged up and im losing top speed or is he full of crap?
Can this boat hit 60mph???????????
Also i was told if i change the lower unit to an x drive i can gain 5-8 mph is this true????
And finaly i want to build the motor this winter which direction do you think is the best bang for my buck and best for the motor, whipple charger, pro charger, or just build the motor???????
Please let me know what your thoughts are thanks
