Water transportation Speedboat Boat Vehicle Boating I say the driest boat. H.P. and hull only account for part of the calculation. Set-up is a whole different ballgame. Set-up on this boat is almost right. This is only 430HP,at just over 80 MPH. Set-up is the key.

It's more about set up then power,even though it does take power to go fast, but like posted earlier a 'hydro jet' does not go well together....

One would think they are oxymoron,but Dean Willis ran 130+ at drags 34 years ago in Jet Hydro:)coffee
I have no doubts about this. My question would be, how much power did it take and how did he make that power 34 years ago ? Not N.A.? Maybe, IDK. Just inquiring.

So no definitive answer? Gonna be a good race!
We need more info. We also need to know weights, engine specs and so on. The pumps "being set up perfect " doesnt tell us anything either. Were they both done by the same person at the same spec? ...on the same day ?...without beer? My Berk JG has a Hi-Helix B cut impeller. My buddys boat has a Jacuzzi Y something with an aluminum impeller that is "set up perfect". There is no comparison. Ooooh, this will be good. After all, it is still wintertime. Carry on. EDIT... After reading the O.P., I would have to go with the T.T. boat, all things being equal.

Weights, engine specs, pump set ups etc. I don't know. Just a lot of talk back and forth so thought I would ask some experts.., it is a olds twin turbo if that matters. Can't wait to see it!!
