Ronnie,

Ross was right my dad's motor is a bone stock O-470-J. I built it for him and for what ever reason theat thing runs (real tight tolerences per Jr. Jurnigan). Beat a lot of 540 boats! I think it is the hull myself that makes it run so good. As for Vostals boat, it had a 0290 at first then we took it off and put a O-360 angle valve motor on it(200hp). That little step boat for 14,500 is a bad A$$ hull, it's carbon fiber. I bought it from Billy Williard a few years back and had my O540 on it! It did not float very well with that motor on it. I couldn't get out of the drivers seat or unload it at the ramp without taking water over the transom! I wish I would have still had my nasty little 200 to put on it.

Thanks Chester for the help...on this...Quick question...What's the difference between an 0-470 ground power vs an 0-470 aircraft are'nt they the same motor or am i wrong...or is one considered air worthy? I decided that's what i want next for a boat and just trying to figure out which one would be best and cheapest to push my big a$$ around lol

Short answer, 470 AC has stronger parts, little more horsepower.

Yep, Like Geoff said + aircraft is lighter overall but more money. Same exact cubic inches. Groundpower will probably be your best bet unless you find a deal on an aircraft engine. :D Ground powers can be worked with... the 520 conversion that Speed Whillie does is SWEET.

Seems I remember a thread here a while back that said the GPU has smaller/thinner? bearings compared to the aircraft O-470. Might wanna check that out. I think the thread was about 2 years back maybe.

Maybe Speed can chime in on this. It may not be true or it may be true but not an issue.

Not sure on that bear but I know I did take the weights off of my dad's crank. It seems to snap up quicker. :D

Thanks for the help and everyones input on this topic it really helped me understand a little more about these motors...Maybe one day i'll buy a c/m boat and experience how it is over on the " DARKSIDE " ...any suggestions on what prop would work best for a dd setup on a 0-470 on a 12'-13'x7 glass hull? I like warp drives but they're a little on the loud side are they're any other props that perform like a warp drive but without the pissed of bumble bee noise?
