Two killer mini or 12ft airboat motors

Postby Waterthunder » Thu Mar 24, 2016 9:34 am

I had a cool mini motor project going on that I never finished. I have two JUST FRESHENED up EFI SUBARU motors, one is a 4cyl completely gone thru we did a head swap for lowend torque and power. The other is a Subaru 6 cylinder which also was completely gone thru. Both motors are insainly light and have never been started since they were gone thru. They also come complete with a stand alone EFI harness and computer I spent over $3,000 JUST on the harnesses and computer's. Both motors already have the harnesses installed and I have fuel pumps fro both motors. I will sell everything for $3,500. Right now time is very important to me so I want it all to go together somebody is going to get a hell of a deal. A buddy of mine who builds sand rails helped me with this project and I will give you all the contact info and vendor info you would ever possibly need.

The Pemberton Boy's in Floral City are getting big into Subaru power plants fyi so far I hear good things.
They rig a boat hull called a DragonFly with them and get crazy good fuel consumption and run dry well.
