I am looking for 75-80 mph out of my bahner, i lost the motor that was in it and would like to hear some Ford only engine combos people are running and getting that speed out of a similar boat....

To make a big boat like that do 75 you are looking to make 650+ hp, maybe more. Good luck having someone spec that combo out for free. Look up LakesOnly. He knows the Fords, and while I dont think he will give you a free combo, he can build a nice stout motor package for you.

Mines kinda the same thing and I don't think the hull will hold 80!!
The boat was not made to go that fast. IMO. But good luck!!!:)

Bahners were good hulls back in the day, actually it depended on the mood rod was in that day......:D...........ya thats a heavy boat to get that speed out of, but its very possible, mines a stock 460, with a tight dom pump, and im getting right at 60. Throw a shitload of money at it..............:D:D:D

Maybe bad mood, Im picking it up tomarrow after new stringers, floor, bottom cracks fixed, and the bottom gel coated again, color sanding the boat and new throtle and steering cables....4700.00 later im looking at a engine combo 532 bbf 631 hp and 650 ft lbs...... i have a 12jc i need to upgrade to the split bowl and droop snoop, thats what im up against....

If its a heavy boat go overboard on the power. My 21 has 800 hp and im in the mid 80's...Not sure how heavy it is but it likes going fast. Just be careful and approach the faster speeds with caution.

Think OUTBOARD!!!
No thanks. You know why? Cuz from a dead stop or even a cruise I will walk away from you-no doubt about it. Maybe your outboard is more efficient on fuel, but my big block is way more fun. I can pack 5 people in my boat and still get on plane with no noticeable difference. I know for a fact that you cannot. Glad you like yours though, but until you've had a big hp jet, you just wont get it.

Why do you come in here and stir up shit? This is the jet boat forum, and if you like your egg beater so much go to your own damn forum... I have seen 3 posts by you today bashin our shit.... STFU and GTFO. That big ass grey outboard really makes your boat look cool! I bet it makes great margarita's too :)hand
