Originally I was looking for a replacement long block but after I inspected the engine a little more and also realized that this is. a 5.0 pre vortec, Im on the hunt for a replacement 5.7 vortec drop in. Just gonna reuse my accessories (starter, alternator, manifolds risers etc)
IMO, 200 hp at the crank is anemic for a boat this size. A 300hp vortec 350 should wake it up nicely and put it right on the edge for the Alpha 1 gen 2 outdrive.
As of this moment I haven’t purchased anything but Im shopping hard for the best deal.
