High compression GPU

Post by rjonesboy »

I just purchased a dual mag, high compression GPU and was wondering about the power difference over stock GPU which is on my boat now. Any input would be appreciated

High Comp GPU

Post by Muddyduck »

The actual horse power is probably only 35 to 40more than the stock unit. Stock is rated at 220 hp, I had a similar motor with dual mags, 11:1 compression(approx), 650 holley 4 barrel. The benefits are, in my opinion, more complete burn and quicker response. Just run the engine with one mag and listen to it, then kick in the other mag a notice the difference. Also, two is better than one if something breaks. You are also better off running AVGAS if you can find it and afford it. It will make the engine run better and cooler. Hope this helps
