Nice , cracking engines, you’ll get a real pronounced whine from the supercharges when in the upper rev bands - it’s addictive!
You can be sat cruising at 30 knots, hit the throttles and the 350’s accelerate hard till you get scared lol, you’ll have some fun with them

I'm excited to get on the throttles, that's for sure!

The etecs hit 1000 hours and are now out of warranty. We did have some issues with them, lower units mainly. The verados have been almost flawless for us, so we went back.
