    Not much power for the $$$. Lots better engines out there for the money that make way more power.
    Maybe the selling point is that it's not a Maint. Intensive engine?

    Exactly. A buddy of mine recently bought a new speed boat. He was showing me the cost differences of upgrading from a fuel injected 350 to a 454, and the upgrade cost was around $15K.

    Insane. You could have a Motown block with a Whipple on there making the same power for ten grand less.

    From finding parts for my jet boat with a 460 BBF: marine parts are just freakin' expensive!!!! Take the typical automotive part and add at least $100 to the cost and you get the basic marine price. Go figure. Well meybe not tha much, but close. Don't have it here, but look at the price difference between the MSD marine ignition and the regular automotive ones. Better water resistance I guess.... /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif Never mind the price of a decent set of headers... Stainless steel... water jacketed... WELL over $1k for a set of Bassets or Lightnings.... too scated to go find the actual prices /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif
