    Default tunnel vision and widowmakers engine mounting

    i noticed that the tunnel vision of skip's 06 tpr has an engine that has a very severe angle mounting and the engine in widowmakers boat appears to be level with the boat lines.

    what is the reason for the severe angle on the tpr. Is it the angle the intake is installed at or what?

    Kjell uses a u-joint drive shaft and the other probably has a solid driveshaft which means the engine and the pump shaft must be in alignment

    Engine low and flat = lower center of gravity. Engine high and lots of angle = top heavy and high CG.

    Widowmakers engine install is like that for a reason and the boat hauls ass.
