Does anybody know if I can use the Verado four position ignition switch with these mechanical V6ís? My dealer installed cheap looking three position key switches, Verado switches look much nicer!

This should be good! Interested to see the fuel burn & performance comparisons.

Interesting.

(Slightly off topic) Out of curiosity, did you put the leaning post rod holders on your t top?

Yes, as long as they didnít chop the connector off of the harness to install the generic 3 position ones.

Are you 7'4" tall or how do you reach rods in the rocket launcher above the T-Top?

Was finally able to get on the water, here's some preliminary #'s:

Enertia 19 (non eco) 5900 rm, 56 mph
Rev 4 17, 6050 rpm, 52 mph

Motors mounted on second to lowest hole, feel like I'm leaving some performance on the table, think I can go up one or two holes and try some Rev 4 19's. Will provide some detailed mpg numbers next week. Overall these engines are incredible, feel more powerful than the 200 HPDI's and I loved the HPDI's.

Holeshot with the rev4 17's is crazy

I agree going up twp holes and running the Rev 4s, they like to run high and the old Yamahas were mounted in the #4 hole as well where as you're in #2. Jack 'em up!
