I have a mild 540ci na motor with single 1050 dominator  running 91 octane in an 18ft eliminator bubble deck with 2- 12 gallon tanks Cruising between 3500-4500rpm what do you think the mpg would be? Just curious to see about how far I will be able to go before I would have to break out the paddle and start rowing!

Boat: 76 eliminator 18ft with Berkeley jg pump
engine block: 454
I want my boat to be able to do 70+mph

im just looking for some helpful info to get me in the right direction. in my head I have planned to go 496 w/ 10.1 comp hyd roller cam brodix heads and 950cfm dp carb.

« on: July 01, 2018, 12:00:59 PM »
The hull is a 76 eliminator bubble deck! What are your guys thoughts? I donít want to spend a shit load of money. I was thinking of dropping in blueprints 632ci n/a from summit, itís claimed 815hp. Or do I add a blower to the current 454 motor thats in the boat and call it a day? What are your guys thoughts?
