    Tell me a little more about your 468 and pump. I've got a 468 in my 18' gullwing and trying to get a little more out of it. I'm sure mine is much more of a tow-truck motor than anything. Just wondering what it takes for 80 mph?

    Shouldn't take to much to get a 18' to 80. Make sure you have a tight pump and a mild 468 will get you there. My heavy 19 had a 468(maybe 600 HP) and my best pass was 90 after I built the pump.


    And nice lookin winger Magoo

    Not sure of the weight. We think it's an Earl Smith. It does have a cp hin. It's an 18' with 2x6 stringers, so they were not laying this one up for drag racing. I have hyd roller cam with roller rockers. .566 lift if i remember. Oversized valves and some mild head work. 781 heads ,dual plain weiand. Holley 850 w/mech secondaries. Stock crank and rods. Fed mogul forged pistons.9.5:1. HEI ignition. OT headers. Pump....Dominator suction. G bowl. Rideplate. 4*up Tapered shoe. Mpd loader. Diverter. Alum "a" impeller. Going to a bronze a/b i think.
    The carb is still not fully dialed in.
    Best i got consistantly last year was 69.8 mph at 5195 rpm. At 4600' ft elevation.
    I don't want to make this boat something it is not. Just wondering if a switch to a bronze a/b, a single plane intake, and maybe a stuffer in the bowl, along with better carb tuning and timing will get me to high 70's?
    Not alot of people here to do pump work. It was rebuilt by myself this year. What does a good "tight" pump mean?
    Just curious what it takes to get a similar boat such as yours to 80? Thanks. Josh
