Here are a couple more pics. Motor in before cover installed. The custom intake with MAF sensor turned out sweet but did not work as well as we anticipated. We will need to make some tweeks in order to get a better MAF reading. At this point with the first tune installed she runs better with the MAF unplugged. This issue will be easily fixed using an OE style intake or fine tuning the MAF sensor.
We are still running the same prop as the big block had and hoping to get some props for testing A.S.A.P

Getting itchy. Found a sweet 1988 liberator 211 with an omc 460 king cobra (BBF :ThrowUp: ) fuel consumption on most with all 4 bbl's sucking air is about 21gph. Where with a bbc 14ish is much more common. If 400-450ish hp with 15gph or less would be great if possible. Question being how much for a total swap including o/d? Can a bravo 3 be used or is there too much tq of the multiprop drive? Ik the repower would cost more than the boat is worth, but if it works well and doesn't suck me dry on fuel and parts it'll be almost worth it.
couple conversions for I/O's I've seen guys saying you have to use a super expensive XR drive in order to not shred the drive which just adds to the cost fo the build along with having to cool every aspect of the motor to keep temps in check.
interested to see some cost effective parts to hit the market. I want to swap out my motor and hold onto it for a boat build.
dmaxstore - how big of a footprint are you using up there? need to know how big of an engine dept is needed i'm assuming even if you find a big bowrider with rear seats it won't be enough room so i'm guessing you'll need something with a bench seat in the back with a full engine bay to work with.
