I have a 1997 DCB 24 Extreme closed bow double step hull with a 502 mag mpi. I believe this motor was spec'd @430 hp by Mercruiser. The motor runs great, has about 300 hours and pushes the boat to low 70's on regular speedo.
I'd like to get 80-100hp more out of it keeping stock heads, crank...

We just milled with ceramic button inserts at the Sandvik seminar and they do survive. Ceramics are progressing, but admittedly there application window is very small.
I could go on all day about this stuff, it's fun.
Time to stop the thread hijacking.
That's a good thing!!! haha
Now if you want to see fast on tough material, check out turning Inco 718 with ceramic. I have a customer running about 1300 sfm on 718!!! It's awesome. I was at a Sandvik seminar recently and they have run ceramic up to 3000 sfm on 718!
