    from what i see stock 260 hp small blocks with twin turbos it is suppose to do 73 but i only got it up to 50 and bailey heard the turbos, it war running 6000 rpms and ate up 41 gal of gas in just under 3 hours. run time blows oil, and i could not trim the motors as trim indicators are bad and one pump is super slow. needs work has stock quadrajet carbs and points ignition definitely needs up grades i think its taking too much fuel for where i went on the pond but who knows.. time to learn some.. i would also think i could run on only one motor but it wont plane out or go for crap. havve some shift cable rubbers to replace who knows just picked it up friday. and go to go for a boat ride for the 4th

    as soon as you iron out the issues, sounds like you will have a bitchin boat. too bad the small blocks didnt come with at least 300 hp then. aside from the motors, hows the rest of the boat?

    well pulled the motors and interior, gas tank and found that the core was shot as you can see the hull move from under the boat . and it seams to be all the way to the front of the boat i dont think this one is fixable or worth it??

    its the whole core front to back witch would be taking everything out of the boat and starting from a bare hull with no core and start fixing or maybe do 5 foot at a time not to flex boat but it would need to be in a good straight cradel i would think if not the mold it was built from but i am no expert
