I thought we were talking Marines from your topic title. But you left out 'air'.

drop an L67 in that case, put it up front, then you can have your FWD boat!

btw, pics under the hood please

Who needs a boat that fast anyways?? If a fish can move that freakin' fast, I sure as heck don't wanna catch it.....

It'd be fun to runa around in, tho. Gotta admit that much.

I'm betting centrifugal SC. A roots blower would be damn hard to fit in there.

I'll post some pics later of the motor, it'* pretty neat. BTW, it'* not that fast, 60 tops. Our kingfish boat runs 70+, but we have twin 300s on it, and its 33 feet. The motor is a 250 hp 2.6L I-6 24 valve DOHC. Whats cool is you can also get a 275, same motor just more boost. You have to put premium into the 275 though. The motor has KR too, if you put 87 in it (sometimes thats all you can get on the water), you can run the engine just the same, but the KR brings it down to 250 hp.
