    Have we hit the wall?

    Last year we had a flurry of new stuff for our GPR's. We went from around 75 mph to near/at 80 mph. This year, not much. Other than a total rebuild to accomodate 1400 or 1500 cc's, what else is there? What's on the horizon?

    Seems like we've hit the wall on pump and porting mods. I suspect there's more to be had out of the hull, but what? I need something to look forward to!

    Actually that is pretty big. Just sucks to have to go back into a good running engine IMO.

    And you cant run your...

    Very funny! You keep going the way you are, and you may convince me to switch to EFI!

    Like the Fountain boats? I'd like to see someone do that and report on it.

    I dont think it would help due to the fact there is soooo little in the water just the last 24" I belive it would make the intake grate such too much air the steps help raise the boat farther out of the water also they create air pockets uder the boat but I have been wrong in the past. Just my 2 cents

    Also sounds expensive

    the gpr is not long enough to benefit from a stepped hull...imho
