you think so??

I know you can chip up car diesels thinking VW golf 1.9 tdi 110 or 115hp can be chipped quickly and cheaply to 150hp

I have a bmw 3.30d 183hp someone told me i can get that chipped to 210ish easily

and it doesnt hurt the mpg or reliabilty!!

how is this done? is it just the electronic management system?

Marine apps are a different ball game, full, or near full power for long periods, cars rarely get anything like the same hammering

All Cigarette Top Guns are 38 footers. Top Gun is a Cigarette model name. Built from 1987 to current.

Here are few for sale in the USA today.

Im trying to post photos of some brand new Top Guns straight from the paint shop lastweek, but can't. Can anyone help with that?

And the boat in the ad at Atlantique Boats for this Cigarette Top Gun is not the actual boat they have for sale, if im correct they are using the photo from the companys website. Here it is. It may have the same paint sceme though.

I don't believe there is a difference between the 2002 and the 2004 TG (top gun) hulls.

I believe the top gun in Norway is not a Florida built boat !!

but a Swedish built Hightec 3900 version

So in my book not a true cigarette ??
