If that were true it would produce more HP but would likely feel sluggish getting on plane...
Rather than go all geeky and look for curves, anyone have direct experience with identical hulled MC but one powered by Indmar and one powered by Ilmore? Does the Ilmore feel materially stronger? In the end that's what I care about... Not how it's rated but how it pulls.
That is what we need the answer too! I will have it this summer but not yet there is still is ice on the lake! Can anyone answer this now??
