    V6 in Polaris 785 Pro? Real or not?

    Found here:
    http://www.rapidacceleration.com/v6pro.htm

    Does it exist? Can anyone verify that this is real or just some punk with Photoshop CS2?

    I hope this is a newer find, because I searched the forums to see if this has been brought up before but had no luck...

    yeah this ski pops up from time to time on here, ive read some stuff on it, its a merc v 6 motor put on its side, hooked up to the pump by a drive belt like you see in a tractor pull, (ehat they use too link two or three motors together).

    like stated above its not a pro hull, its a, if i remember right a 94 sl hull but i might be wrong.

    more info on here if you search for it.

    Polaris/Mercury 2.5 EFI, DeWayne Ogden, Jesup, Georgia


    Yes, that's a real 2.5 Merc EFI shoehorned into this Polaris.
    DeWayne Ogden who is a long time truck pulling champion, believes anything can be improved with more horsepower! He's got just that with a Merc V6 built by Larry Mumford of Outboard Performance.
    Look close and you'll see that the motor has to lay on its side to fit under the seat. Besides adding more power, the addition of a Brucato SVS also helped solve some clearance problems. Power is transmitted to the stock pump through a gilmer belt drive.
    If the sharp looking graphics don't give this rocket ship away, The unmistakable rumble of the monster Merc puts all other water rats on alert.
    The acceleration of this water toy has to be seen to be believed.
    DeWayne says top speed is whatever it takes to be in front!
