    Default 9 vane bowl

    I know this isn't enough info but has anybody went from a stock Berkeley bowl to nine vane bowl? If so did you see any significant gains?

    Went from a modified split C bowl to a 9 aggressor. I can cruise at about 2-300 rpms less at same speed with the 9. Seems to get out of the hole decent but dont have the HP to fully get any real gains.

    Went from stock Berkeley 12JB bowl to 9 vane Aggressor I picked up from Tom at JBP.

    Hell yea buddy, I have the HP & what a difference!

    If you're gonna do the bowl make sure the rest of what you have will let it flow

    No. Lost 300 rpm is all I saw.

    Tiger that's not what I wanted to hear. Did you put it on the beer drinking boat? I want to start gathering parts for the new project. Y'all on the road yet?

    Did the swap years ago, before going to the track and getting slips to verify... but...

    Apples to apples... only swapping out the berk to aggressor bowl... didn't see any mph gain on gps... but boat stayed on plane and cruised at about 2-300 rpm less. Seemed a bit more responsive as well.


    It didn't seem to be enough of a noticeable gain to take the MPD worked berk bowl off my Crusader and swap to a 9 vane... but at the same token... it seemed to be better than the janked-up "worked by Hack & Sons" berk bowl that was on my gullwing that I would never swap back to it or a stocker.

    I do not know the exact address of where they are... but I have seen plenty of evidence over the years of where they have been.
