350hp Indmar engine is incredible reliable, and good on the gas. After ballast and sacing out my boat it takes a little while to plain out. I rode behind the X-Star with the 8.1 liter and it plained out quick--seemed like 30 yards or better--and this thing is loaded with weight.

I thought that the 350hp would be economical--good power, save a little gas. Now factoring in the time/distance it takes to plain out I'm wondering if the 8.1 liter (how many hp is that?) would work to the same gas consumption?

So the question is: Less power longer plain distance, or more power shorter plain distance--which is better on gas consumption?

Anyone have any thoughts?
