    how are you going to cool it. marine motors suck up seawater and expell it out the exhaust. you would look funny with a 200 gallon water tank in the back and spewing hot water all over the trail.

    Pull the heat exchanger for the keel cool ditch the wet exhaust and tube it up for a radiator. Sucks that those parts are high dollar and that's why the price is so high on them. Plus they are primarily made to run in certain RPM ranges due to their cam profile so it would be "questionably" unfeasable. I just aquired a GM 5.7ltr TPI Marine engine that is a four bolt main, roller cam, 340 hp crate motor with 5 hours on it that was sunk underwater for a few weeks and never drained after Katrina. It's locked up still but hopefully not to pitted in the cylinders, but what the hell, it was FREE, just had to pull it out the mudboat it was in.

    I think it was Peterson's a number of months ago, last year even, hinting at doing one up in a off road rig. I've not been following for a while so they may have done it by now.
