So you need a 300r guinea pig?
Yes would be nice to get one going.
We have 6.2mags and jets coming down the 23 order list.
NO 300R yet, or 300 v8 optimax / verado / pro xs so many variations.

The 300 Pro XS would be the best value - cable shift - uflex steering - simard dash.

I love these damn boats. My wife and I are really talking about buying a new Nautique since I work for them, but even cost on the least expensive one is a LOT more than one of these. I may be calling you in the near future. Please keep putting up photos!

Baby Blue.... nope... I am not feeling that at all.

But I am not the customer, and in this case, the customer is always right.

Im a contender for a 300 v8, from what i understand the 300 is not a DTS requirement right?

Correct you have options w v8 300
The pro xs 300 20” shaft deal non dts looks to be best value.

Verado 350 400 only dts

Got the LSA bravo boat wrapped up. Motor hatch actually grew due to all the shit on top of the intercooler Marine power does it different than Indmar.
Boat hauls ass. Will be rolling around needles to Parker.

What was the top end number and where is the cruise sweet spot? I would also really like to know fuel burn numbers if you can get them. Boat came out great. Really interested in the small block package on a performance boat.

Yah we didnt have time. We took forever on the build so I got a shakedown run, detail and its on the road to Parker AZ.
Simply stated: The LSA Hauls ass - 40 to 75mph puts you in the back of the seat.

Lots of parts to make it work, happy it is turn key and fun.

Would there be a performance difference being this is the torque master lower compared to a Sportmaster lower on the 400R Or do they perform similarly?

Hey buddy! Sent you a PM today. Looking at getting some more information on the 300 Pro XS and 300r package with this boat.

Also considering jet as well.

Shoot me a call tomorrow after lunch Todd 949 466 9844

300r v8 would be best for 23 deck
Everyone wants the 400r but I feel the v8 is best choice for a deckboat

Jet boats: we have 4 x 23 deck jets coming down the line

I got close to 80 but the conditions weren’t ideal. The owner has a large crew usually so I’m not sure what he has gotten.

I will do a test sooner then later with a good prop and let her eat.

More 23 decks
