    Default What's the best hull for a PGJ

    I'm going to build a boat to run PGJ and just wondering what you guys think is the best hull for that class/hp. I was thinking of CP tunnel, Cheyenne, placecraft or a warhahk '16 (remake of a texas tunnel) I know there's alot good boats to choose from just wondering which will be the fastest with a limited amount of hp (1100-1200hp). Thanks

    the quickest pgj in the country is still a cheyenne. the fastest was a daytona. both hulls in the 360-370lb range, and both (especially the cheyenne), a tad over 1200hp...

    I picked up another set of worked over C460 heads and i still have the pistons, rods and crank to build a 9:1cr 598 to put the turbos on if i want down the road, but I want to build a PGJ just because it's a reall art to make a 500" n/a motor make big power under 7500rpm.

    Current NJBA record I think is 8.37 at 127 mph. Class limitations are 515 Cubic inch Max. No nitrous.

    Keith Zellmer in Risky business years ago ran PGJ with a daytona and ran very well.

    A light boat, aluminum motor, light weight driver, efficient pump and a spread port motor spinning some rpm should be impressive in that class.
    Boat 405.

    I'm thinking hi 7's.

    Thanks for Tom's number, i talked with him for about 45 min or so earlier and he seems to know his shit. I'm about 95% talked into getting a Placecraft from his new molds his finishing up.

    Thats great news! I thought i seen where a few of the boats were running hi 7's, they must be running in both PGJ and UBFJ maybe? Where they can use some spray.

    Boat will be light, Great pump and a 500" BBF with prostock hemi heads. Down side is it will be a A460 steel block and i'm about 250lbs.
