    a friend of mine owned one from new in 2002 on a 22 ft eliminator daytona that weighed 4000 lbs. He had a 572 quad whipple dynoed at 1300 hp. Ive seen him make dozens of passes from a dead stop to 120 mph dragracing other boats on a regular basis. The lower unit needed gears at 50 hours. The top end never broke but had occassional problems going into reverse but i hear there is a fix for that. What i dont like about them is that their lower unit leaves much to be desired hydrodynamicly compared to imcos lower unit. And no, imcos wont fit the b max and that is a shame. jmo

    U can't have strength without giving up hp to keep it together. The gears are a lot bigger than mercs.
