Hello,

I am in the process of purchasing ProStar 190 (year 1995). I would like to know what engine it has. Can anyone help based on the image attached? The owner does not know but he tells me it does have power slot option on and the boat was upgraded to 4 blade prop.

350 TBI (throttle body injection) non-vortec heads (I believe), At least my 94 is non vortec.
Rated at 285hp, when new.

My guess would be similar to mine: Indmar (Chevy) 350 CI, Throttle Body Fuel Injection with 275 HP.

The only thing I see different is the ECM location.

Yeah, it was rated 275 hp when new. The 351HO was 285.

I'm guessing that's a 94 or 95 based on the combing pads.

/edit. Just saw the OP - 1995.

That is the 350 TBI 275 HP with ECM relocated to the top of the engine. My 1994 had the ECM below the exhaust.

No, Just another member that surfs craigslist regularly. That looks like a beautiful unique boat.
