Wow, NKY Bullet, I have your old boat! I bought it from a fella in Indiana July 2014, It's still in perfect shape and well cared for. I concur your numbers, still running strong. I'm in East Texas around the Beaumont area, and Chris Domino is doing some nice mods on it now as follows..
Solid mounts, uppers-lowers
Brucato SVS System
Swapped to premix
Mercury 28 Lightening ET

After research I think this is a record for this combo…. Video made and posted on BBC Bullet Forum .. 21 XDC 250 xs Record Attempt...

Prop- 26P ProMax w/ 4 PVS new prop (lost a blade on my 26P trophy plus)
15" rapid jack jack plate

My best run was 76 gps
water pressure 20
The hole shot is horrible on this boat... the prop blows out or loses bite when the nose drops, and when the live well is full it takes forever to get on plane.
Not sure if I need to lower my motor or raise it. ??????? Thinking about getting a B-Man foil but not sure if it would solve my problem.
I don't really care about going faster than 80 but I would like to improve my hole shot!
Any and all suggestions on my set up would be greatly appreciated!

Steven Eversole, KY 01 Bullet 20XDC / Merc X Factor, Bad Ass on Pump Gas (by Paul Nichols & Dale)
1999 20XD, 2013 175 Pro XS, 12 inch set back, 25 Fury at 3 inches below pad. 5800 rpm, 70 to 72 hard loaded to fish in summer time. I run a 26 Fury in winter time, 5900 rpm, same engine height, 72 to 74 hard loaded. Funny how that works but true numbers. Very easy and fun to drive, fishes great. Takes rough water good, Kentucky Lake. Slow Bullet but a great set up for an Ol Man like me. Mostly keep it between 4000 to 4500 rpm, easy on gas that way. Love my Bullet but really love my little 2.5 Merc.
