That is an unbelievable boat. It looks exceptionally clean. I would love to have an engine compartment like that. You could get to anything on that motor without breaking a sweat or twisting body parts in unnatural positions.
it's only money....yea....
in my opinion the boat seems like a pretty good deal. I'll have to find out how recently all that engine work was done... I'd never by a boat with blower engines that had been run with over 8 lbs of boost. If the work has been done since that time yea...but if these motors have been run at over 8 lbs as mentioned in the ad - no way...
especially with 8.75 compression pistons. My blower motor has J&E 8:1's and was never run over 4.5 lbs of boost.
I'm with you Jeff on the supercharged engine. Scary! I also herd and understood that a procharger or vortec 'could' work with a carb but was a real bitch to set up! I wonder if they would pull the engines for you and you could fill the compartment with what you want?
Maybe some engine manufactures would take them on trade? The boat is beautiful, I think it's worth a few phone calls to check out the engine swap theory. Let us know.
Hey Obnoxus, if you do that i think your going to need some one who nows these things to reset the jetting and such. If your spending that much I kinda like em to run when I get em. Not play around for weeks.
My 2 cents!
