Re Zenoah Power

Well many places make Zenoah 'power improvements' be aware .... many of these :Engine Shops' do not have a dyno and while dyno results do not guarantee 'power on the water' they do supply a good baseline and show the builders commitment.

I'll stick to using 'true dynoed' engines as I know what I have. Look at the shops close before you spend your hard earned cash on a 'improved Zenoah or Sikk

Re: blackjack 55 slow

I agree mistycreek. I would look around and shop well when it comes to spending your money. I'm not sure if Carmen has a dyno or not, but I can tell you what the physical results are.......and that is a boat that runs almost twice as fast as it did before and, I have not bothered to tune or try different lengths of piping for power. I figure if it aint broke, don't fix it. LOL. it was gunned (police issue laser gun, courtesy of a police buddy of mine)at just under 40MPH (think it was 38MPH)with the stock engine and playing with different props. after I got it back, the boat was clocked at 73MPH and then 78MPH after playing with props. again, I'm not gonna bother tuning or piping since I'm extremely happy with the results.

I don't and cannot comment on anyone else's product, except the one that I know myself...........and I am extremely happy with what Carmen did to my engine. although, I would like to send it in the off season to get the combo dynoed and see if they could tweak it a bit. that would be awesome.

Re: blackjack 55 slow

I Agree if you want power check with guys who have used some one's product ... and the 'on water' results speak for them selves ... even more so when they are 'gunned or on GPS'

Just be sure before u spend your $$ ... I have had good luck and have been 'suckered' once or twice too

Ask around and do your home work before u spend ... Big name doesn't mean Big Power .... but beware of Big Power claims without actual 'on water' or real dynoed results

Have fun .... spend wisely .... I like to see the attached sheet below when I spend my $$$$ ... I know what I start with for my $$$$
