    Run it for now, with 750 hp and the correct hardware you should see 100 plus easy.

    If you ask around, a the smallest keel you can get away with to load the pump correctly will be the fastest. I've had my pile flipped over a couple times already since building it. No big deal.

    Any idea on the weight?

    How much does your boat weight. Has the original intake been moved back. Where is the engine from the transom right now.

    It will probably have flats on either side of the keel on the center pod. Std daytona probably around 600 to 800 lbs. 2x4 stringers or 1x4 stringers?

    Thanks Widow It has 1x4 stepped down for seats, and yes flats on sides of keel just was wondering if I should build keel up a little to add step off at the sides?

    I hope the step downs are radiused otherwise they will eventually crack and break there. Have you run the boat yet? Is there a problem with the existing keel? I wouldn't do anything to it until you run the boat.

    This thread has peaked my interest. How about some pictures of various keel shapes and designs as they compare to various hp/speed goals. I don't expect you to reveal any secrets but surely there are enough stock variations and general modifications that can be shared for the average river racer?
