Sounds good!

We have a 555 cubic inch roller Cadillac platform in the blue print stage with Mr. Branch fyi, seeing how your new EFI feeds an engine that big is of great interest.

I will PM my contact info

Kits are expensive and no matter what you do, you can't get around the fact it's a heavy pig of a motor. I was always wanting something more out of my 8.1 but it helped me out by self-destructing. I replaced it with an LSA, Rachat prêt which wasn't the best choice at the end of the day. My recommendation would be to get a purpose-built LS3. That motor will weigh nearly 300 lbs less, produce a heck of a lot more power than the 8.1 with every mod you could imagine, and be light-years more reliable. One thing you didn't mention is the size of your boat. If it's more than 15 feet, you may want to go with a big block. GTO/MAS would be a good way to go. 15 or less, stick with the LS3. Give Dave at Waterthunder or Shane at Dynamarine a call. They will hook you up.

Yes, I quite agree with you :)
