Ok for those that don't know I finally got my engine running like it should, but I am not satisfied with my top speed, 51.4 with my foot to the floor, it did this consistently all day long. Is there anything that I could do to the pump to pick up more speed? Or is it all just down to getting more horsepower out of the engine? For the very few who don't know my setup by now, I have a 19' Hawaiian hull w/ a 427 tall deck Chevy bored 0.060", flat top pistons, big oval port truck heads, Edelbrock dual plane intake, Holley DP 800 cfm w/ mechanical secondaries, 10 qt. oil pan w/ windage tray and baffles. All this turning a Berkeley 12JC with an AB impeller (possibly a Berk, no one has ever been able to give me a straight answer on the impeller make), bowl stuffer, stock rock grate, and I do have a new place diverter, hopefully I'll have an rpm for you guys by next week (thanks Sleek), damn tach don't work. I know I need a shoe and ride plate to get it up out of the water, and pick up some speed, I'm thinking about pulling the intake this winter and having it machined. I've been looking at split bowls a lot lately, does anyone know if a droop would help this boat any. And, is there anything else I should also do to pick up some speed, I'd like to at least get into the mid 60's, on a budget, if possible. If there's anything else you need to know, let me know and I should be able to tell you.
