dmminfla: you have some hours on you boat, tell me how you like it? I still have not put my hands on mine yet and getting very anxious. I spent three years fine tuning my search and building my fun money account. The only thing I did not get on my list of needs was the LT1. Are you satisfied with the 275HP? I have looked at the K&N filter kit. It claims to add 18hp. That would be a quick upgrade if required. How about your stock prop? I am a footer so top end and hole shot are important. What else is there, right? This waiting around is killing me. I have a 10 hour drive to pick her up next weekend. Ice is still on here so it will be April before she makes it to the lake.
