Here is a little more running video. We plan on dipping it in the lake tomorrow to test out a couple more things.

The day we have been waiting for has arrived. Lake day.




First time in the water. We did not have a MAF sensor in so we are running on reduced power and RPM for today. The new V-drive is pretty noisy until it gets a little throttle. All in all everything went extremely well. Prop testing and finishing the electrical will be on next weeks agenda.

We did not have any gauges on this trip. The idle seemed a little high and it was hard to keep the boat under 8mph when in gear. Fine tuning will be done this week and then back to the lake.

Here is a better clip under acceleration.

It's still a little early to tell. The current tune should be around 350hp and 620ftlbs. On the first day out without a MAF sensor we were not even getting those #s. However the throttle response and power was night and day compared to the gas motor. Once tuning and prop selection are dialed we will post up some more info.
