Lots of things can affect a dyno. All I know is that this number was without the exhaust tips. No other info specific to the testing other than that. Take it for what it's worth. If you or anyone else has a lot of in depth knowledge of how these things work and how numbers can change based on tiny condition changes, you may be able to make yourself feel more or less comfortable with that figure.

I have seen dyno figures from older PCM GT-40 figures come out around 311 or 312. They are rated at 310.

A lot of this drop off might be due to the mandatory cats put on the boats in around 06 or so. But that's just speculation.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
