Cigarette Repower: Who's running 565 /XR Stern drive power in performance V-Bottom?

Official Racing Partner

I had so much freakin' fun with Project 1080 Cigarette Top Gun restomod (merc 540s) over last four years, decided to repower the FPC paceboat with twin M/R 565 XR ITS on the old school, straight bottom mono-hull (2000 model year) . New Theme of course:) "Flight 1130-NonStop".   Super curious how many of you guys out there running this power train in offshore V-bottoms and what kind of performance numbers are you seeing?? top end, fuel burn in mpg, and what props are working best?? step bottom, straight bottom, either config.,  Please share I can't wait to get this beast unleashed!!!
