Your boat is a Stud, but its not stock. Just trying to compare apples to apples to be fair. Not trying to bash ecotec's. I think a stock turbo 4 cyl ecotec motor with a 2:1 gear is compairable to an 0540 boat. I don't think its gonna run away from one. Maybe I should have said there is no stock (From the factory) ecotec/gearbox boat that is gonna run away from an 0540 boat. Either motor can be built to be Bad AZZ with power adders, Turbo's, Nitrous, ect. I stand corrected. The #'s I was referring to in my post state with a 2:1 gear ratio.
