still minor prob with one sensor somewhere stalling port eng at idle. But, they run great. Scared to floor board it since i do not even know the max rpm's. But they are broke in. Mechanic is bringing computer by on mon to figure last (i hope) gremlin.

I was at 45 mph at 5500. did not want to push it but it still had some more pull. i am still hoping for 50-ish. cruises at 35-36 at 4200 which is were i used to run. can't figure out all the digital gauges yet. I need to read the manual!

R&B, glad to hear that you're back on the water. I thought the max RPM was as far as the throttle will go!!! Just Kidding. Good luck with the final grimlins.

Congrats. I have twin 200 HPDIs and run 52+ with 19 pitch mirage+ props. The 17 steel yamaha props would only run around 47. Great motors and efficient at cruise.

I read that the max RPM should be 5600. That said I've only had mine up to 5300.

R&B,

My cruise gph is 16-18 gph at around 37 mph. Max mpg on the fuel mgt guage is 2.4. Top gph at wot is 38.

My boat weighs around 6800-7k wet, with a 9'3" beam. It is bracketed. I turn 5600 rpm wot, the 17's would go 57-5800+ and had a lot of slip. The large diamter props handle better at the dock, but my single engine troll is a little on the fast side, right at 3smph.

Really loving the no smoking smooth HPDIS.

The boat is a 2001 Grady 232.
