This is a v drive right? Torque is insane...this is what needs to be in a G23

I don't think FAE is going to help that exhaust noise.

t is a turbocharged inline 4, so it may very well be. Turbos can make TONS of power.

I've seen some cool go fast boats with converted helicopter engines ... now that is cool.

Howard Arneson was a genius for boats with converted aircraft engines: (I met him once, and saw his boats blow past me plenty of times out on the delta.)

Sorry to be the naysayer. I'll give you it made a lot of noise...and smoke, lots of smoke.

First, why was the boat porpoising on glass water? That's what made it seem like it was actually doing something. It might have been going 40. Maybe.

It wont be long until an electric boat smokes something like that. When I say long, I'm thinking less than 10 years. It will be next to silent, twice as fast and twice the torque.

Rant over, ha.

Not that difficult in a tiny flat bottom speed boat. I mean an inefficient v8 jet boat can do it...

That wasn't porpoising, it was chine walking. Much worse. He may need taller gears and a smaller prop.

And I'm sure he didn't hit 70 with it, or the spray would rise up and shear behind the boat.

Nice smoke, too. Billowing.

I can't you how much time I've wasted watching videos like the one above ^

I love speed!
