Default Tab length - zt330 1600-2000hp

I am in the middle of my zt330 project and will be deciding on trim tabs in the coming weeks. Would love to hear some input. I am guessing on HP because the motors aren't even built yet but all the parts are ordered and my best guess is 850-1000hp. 572ci motors with 4.5l whipples.

I am not sure whether to go with the 280s or 380s tabs. I may go with a different brand but ultimately 19" or 30" (medium or long).

Anyone with experience on twin engine checkmate with 30"? Cavitation issues? Interference with drives?

Call Jason at Kunkel's Marine. (419)529-4446

They have set up a few zt330's with big horsepower. Also, they are very competitive on their prices for whatever you need.
