Depending on your wallet, you can build those engines close to 200HP! That would be FUN! But yeah when you go that crazy, that's when things break in spectacular fashion with shrapnel and fire. And to think your sitting on top of the engine ..... could be harmful to the family jewels! :shock: :fear: :lol:



This one is already at 255hp. The old 951 2 stroke is only 130hp . More POWER.

Back when they were fairly new, I knew a guy that was over 600# that had to have the biggest one to stay afloat. AND if he fell off they had to tow him to shore to get back on.

Stock its 215. Small upgrades pushes it to 255 pretty easily. Some people are over 400hp. 2#s/ HP pretty good ratio. I like the rivers. No cellphone very little traffic, very few if any people where I go . Its nice.
