    First question would be when you bought that cam and second would be how did you set the cam up?

    What impeller, what intake and carb, and what exhaust? What's your goal?
    Tht would be an OK cam in a lighter boat with headers, a B impeller and some compression.
    If God is your co-pilot, change seats!

    Is your compression ratio assumed or was it measured ?

    What is going to be your max rpm you want to turn the engine? If around 6200 rpm I can tell you that cam is way to big. I have several 502's with 305 AFR heads making 600 to 650HP and the cams are in the 230 to 240 range. Now if you are going to turn it 6800 or so that is another story.

    6000 give or take a few hundred, the 502's you have sound like what I need. This is a heavy ass jet boat, and it will never see the high rpm's like a lighter jet would would see.

    Is it run dry (no water mixing with exahaust) or is the water introduced into the tails ? If water is introduced, where ? and What fall (degrees) do the tails have ?
