    Default Cant wait to get wet!! 77' Spectra

    Really have enjoyed this boat since I got it running. It myserably slow though. I have not been able to find the right combination I guess. But it looks good pretty good...hahahahaha

    That spectra looks in great shape. Still has original engine cover and swim step. Very nice. I think its the 18'.

    GPS'd @ 40mph

    Fresh 460 w/cv9 heads, Roller Rockers, Mallory Ignition, 750 Edelbrock Carb, the cam was matched(Not Wild) but dont recall the specs and a rebuilt E-Pump with a AA cut

    No I dont have a diverter. I think I have something thats not quite right. I think I can only get about 4700-4800Rpm's

    4700-4800 rpm, seems kinda high for an AA impeller. Should be closer to 4400 I would think. Do you know what kind of shape the pump/impeller is in?
