    Whats next?

    So you can see my mods my current best speed to date is 71.4 @7240 (weather was about 60 degrees and I was running the 800 grate) usual speeds are more like 69ish. I am going to be doing the keyway this winter. What else can I do to get some more speed? whats next? I dont want to here ANYTHING about "packages" i just want some good imput and ideas!! i dont have anything against the packages but I dont want to start anymore conflicts!!

    thanks in advance!!

    1) Porting

    2) Head Milling (of course you will have to run 92 or 93 gas now).

    With those 2 things, you could turn a bigger prop. I would also change the 85mm to an 87mm. But some will debate that, so i say try both to see which one is faster for your particular set-up.

    Step your sponsons (this is more for handling than for speed).

    last but not least---add some bling.

    you could sell the riva heads (or whatever they are) and use (mill) the stock one. I honestly think the stock one is stronger since it's all in one piece.

    If you were for some reason bent on keeping the aftermarket 3 piece heads, you could always have those done too.

    Hey R33P, can you send me a picture of the riva race filter? [email protected]
    Also, if you have an efi, I am turning my efi motor @ 7050 rpms at about 72 mph.

    Turning a 14-20 to 7240 and only running 71 indicates a possible hull problem from my point of view.
    I was turning the same prop all summer with an 87 nozzle 7200 at 72, 1200 grate and some much needed hull repair, no package at that point.
    Look at your pump shoe, 4' level, .075 you know the drill. It makes a big difference.

    Something doesn't make sense, rpm is rpm regardless of heads, filter, etc.. With that prop and rpm your speed should be closer to 75 if the hull is right. What tach are you using???
