I was on an X25 last weekend with the 6.2 ilmor, man this engine just puurss at 3000 RPM, and when you open her up, all I can say is wow. Pulling up a surfer, you had to be very easy on the throttle as it could jerk them right out of the water, so I don't think hole shot is an issue. Persons boat will remain un-named but he said the 6.2 is burning only 5-6 gallons/hour on the 25. This is way better than I get on my MCX/X2!
Pretty sure on the towers like today you have 3 options, base, upgraded with clamping racks and power, all 2 point. Follow the times, every other boat manuf. has gone to 2 point for the most part.
