We shall see. I think it will be hard to beat the boss down 18 hp and being heavier 250 lbs, but maybe the 1LE can pull it off. I am hoping it does, but I am not all that optimistic.

The gearing isn't as big as an adavantage as you think becuase the internal ratios in the 1LE transmission were changed. Essentially there is only 1 or 2 gears that end up being lower than a SS. The direct drive gear if affected the most.
