    Default Panther pump energized

    Has anyone had Skagen boats build a panther pump? Or is Tom at performance the man to see.. Not anything against Tom at all. All I've heard is great things about him and his work. I just live very close to Skagen boats and have seen some amazing boats come out of there..

    Skagen will take care of you. Tony and his father Jerry combined probably have 70+ years experience in hotboats and jet pump building.

    For the people on here who would know (not me) they might want to know length, usage, hp, weight things like that all determine what your wanting to achieve, just trying to help!

    It's 18' 850lb and I wish I knew how much power I'm going to have. It's a built 402 bbc steel crank forged pistons full roller 72 open heavy worked heads.. (Going to dyno as soon as I can)
    And I just want it to be a good runner, not looking to try to make it fast, (that's impossible) lol just a river / lake boat..

    I Energized my Panther myself with the advice and help from Jim over at Performance Jet....no regrets and nothing against Tom as well. Best move I ever made to my Panther was Energizing
    I run an 18' Crusader with a mild build 468. I added a droop and picked up about 3 MPH and the boat handles much better. It was feeling a little loose without the droop.

    Here is the thread I started regarding...

    Jet Boat Performance does first class work.Josh is very particular in anythg they do and there energizer kits are well made and work well. Just my 2 cents

    I got one of the 1st ones...and did the install my self. I bolted on 8-9 mph....and dropped my r's doing it. It was that thread on hotboat (energizer thread) that made me pick up the keyboard and sign up for all this.

    Im not sure if Tom is making a panther energizer kit yet. He doesn't have access to the current production kit made by American Turbine. I would say the safe bet would be to deal with Skagen who can provide you with a quality kit and quality local service.

    I'm hoping for more mph. And I just might get it.. I want 75.. I had 55 @ 5200 on a pos 402 out of a impala with 150,000 miles. Did a pretty heavy build on the same 402 and my builder promised me over 600 easy. I'm so pumped about this.. Going to cost me another 3 so total into boat is 15k. (So far)

    Check to see if it needs any fiberglass repair near the transom and stringer/hull area, also maybe paint it up bitchen while its out, always sets the boat off with lil touches like that!
