    I think Beast could tow NeverLand around the lot, but getting her up the ramp would be a challenge.

    Ok cool thanks.

    Engine still alive and gets plenty of workout. I loved my truck with trans and EFI live with turbo back. It sounded mean and had around 500hp. Trans never shifted right with shift kit pushing that much more than stock so I went with a Suncoast Stage V. After that things get way more expensive to keep making power.

    Sounds like you have the same package I am looking at. What have you found for economy gains? Understand it to be in the 20%+ area at 400-425 hp.

    The 52 does not trailer, but we tow our 2006 Mastercraft X80, the Junkyard Dawg, (28’ LOA, 9’ beam, twin 350 HP Indmar V Drives) with a 2006 F250 Lariat with a V10 FX4 and 4:11 rear end...which I call Megatron.
