    most mph out of it he can. For sake of arguement let's just say it's a boat like this :



    and it weighs 600 lbs, but it could be a Daytona too. So the question is: you have a choice of two engines, one makes 850 hp at 6,200 and the other engine make 750 HP at 7,200 and neither one will ever see Nos. If you put the proper impellers in for each engine which boat will be the quickest and or fastest in the 1/4 mile ?

    swap the RPMS around and then you have an argument.

    The 850 is a blown 540 and the 750 is a 12:1 468 with a T/R.

    now you've got a difference in weight as a new variable to this equation.

    That is true.. I meant to put that in the first post. So the extra 100 hp also pushes roughly 50 more lbs.

    But it could also just be a big stroker with small heads that doesn't see much rpm.

    Did you know that the average person uses about 57 sheets of toilet paper every day?

    And that Charles Darwin suffered from seasickness?

    I think I helped to up that average. Nothing worse than a finger "breaking through". TP is cheap.

    I definintely didn't know that about Darwin. Interesting.........

    That's not near as interesting as the fact that the Nobel Peace prize is named after the guy how invented modern dynamite and built ammintition.

    Did you know that tug-of-war was an Olympic event between 1900 and 1920?

    And why do they put Braille dots on the keypad of a drive-up ATM?
