    Default How to get more speed out of my Berkly?

    Looking for some ways to pick up some speed out of the start and the long run? Open to all advice I can get.
    Have a snoot ride plate and shoe place diverter not much for internals bronze A no inducer. Runs 80-82 on GPS V-bottom Haskell boat around 475-500HP
    And she runs pretty wet.
    Just looking for some ideas for what I have right now.
    Thanks Nate

    Is your Snoot straight or the 4 degree one? Do you have any wedges installed? If so, how much up or down?

    What's all done to the engine? Are you set on just making pump modifications or are you open to engine upgrades as well?

    Read the efficiency thread

    Set up before HP... it may take more time but it's cheaper in the long run

    Take the pump out, crate it up and send it to MPD. Jack and Chris will dial you in the right way!

    Damn O, didn't know that me putting your azz on the trailer would shake you up that bad but to be honest, you need more hp and freshin up the pump as well before you line up beside that BLUE boat again I guess the phrase BLU-BYE-YOU is true!! later
