In a 1994 PS 190 whats the corvette lt1 engine offer over the standard EFI? My 1993 had the carb motor and it was plenty for skiing the course.

More hp. over the carbed and std. EFI engines. I do not recall what the subsequent gains in hp were per version, but I'm sure someone here will be able to list it.

A 94' Lt-1 should be about 308 HP, the standard TBI was 275.

I am more curious about performance. Does it have a much higher top end, more power out of the hole. How much more would one expect to pay for the LT1 vs the standard EFI today in the 94. So is it substantially better?

The 1:1 gave you about maybe 2-3 MPH more over the 275 HP

The LT-1/powerslot is an animal. I would put my PS 190 with that combo
up againist anything. I know mine goes over 50 MPH

I was actually thinking it would be the opposite. If you have a powerslot, you get a better hole shot out of the water but with the reduction, I'd think you woul lose top end speed compared to an identical standard 1:1 transmission. :confused:

LT1 is basically a "cool" factor with a little more umph! I would also say it would most likely run just a touch smoother due to it being sequential injection and larger coil pack. Whereas the standard one is TBI with 2 injectors.

I think our 96 PS 190 was 335 HP with the LT-1. (I could be wrong and I know someone will inform me if I am). It would run right around 50 though (1:1) and was very strong. We went from a 2400 lb boat with 335 hp to a 3800 lb boat with 325 hp (x-15) so that was a huge change in both power and handling.

I was thinking 94 was 319HP. Multi Port Fuel Injection is very nice and provides more than enough power throughout the powerband. I absolutely love mine.

My 96 PS190 with LT-1 is a freakin' beast...will run 50 and get to it like nobody's business....

My '93 has the LT-1 1:1
My '94 had the LT-1 powerslot

From what I recall, the slot did not give me anymore top speed, but holeshot was better and it should hold more of a steady speed in the slalom course. I have not played with props yet on my '93 so still experimenting but everyone I have pulled (34 mph) seemed to like it so far (just open water slalom)

310 hp was the rating in '94. It was later bumped up to 328hp I believe. (96?)

Either way, you cannot go wrong with the LT-1 power no matter what trans it has.

BTW, Jim's boat looks really nice!

Oh, that's really nice! I actually like the purple and it looks to be in GREAT condition! I hope it works out for you.:cool:

Looks nice. I don't own anything purple but I would do a purple boat. Buddie had a purple BU, that boat/color really grew on me. I think it works nice on the older low profile ski boats, would look a little silly on a big wake boat. I didn't see a price, how much?

He is asking $12.5, and of course I think its too much. If he entertains an offer around $9 I would snatch it up.

I've got the LT1 in my 94 Maristar 225 direct drive, and even with (1:1) pulls the big boat with people and ballast great. Only potential caution is that it sounds like Indmar stopped stocking some things like the formed water hoses for this engine/year, so the dealer can no longer order those for you. (But if someone knows where to find, please PM me and point me in that direction !! :-)

Nice looking boat! That color combo might be a rare bird....I haven't seen one like it before...remember shop the owner as much as you shop the boat and then make your decision as to what it's worth.....

Looks clean. It would appear it's seen a lot of wakeboard use so check it out real good.It may need a different prop for slalom if the guy changed it out.

The skylon it attached to the lifting ring....best check the gelcoat around that.

Engine needs the steam tubes removed from the back of the cyl heads to the front, no big deal. You can get hose/fittings from the hardware store for that.

$10K would be fair with 700 hours on it.

Looks really good. That tandem trailer is sweet, too. Probably worth an extra 1000 just for that.

310 hp. Multi port fuel injection. Cool corvette valve covers. Who are you to refuse.

That boat looks pretty clean. Again, I am not big on purple either, but it looks nice on that boat. Price is not too out of line, although I think I would be comfortable at 11k.

Aluminum cylinder heads, fuel rails, multi port injection, and intake I would think are the biggest differences I can think of, it is a gen 2 block which is similar but still different then the gen 1 tbi block. They used a northstar ignition system which ditches the problematic optispark used in cars. they run more compression due to the reverse flow cooling design. These engines can really wake up with a cam and pushrod/spring upgrade. I'm sure someone has a stroked one out there with a supercharger :)

There has been one listed on BoatTrader.com for a while now that appears to be the same color scheme, but it's a '94. Pretty sure you're not driving to Florida for that one though. Might make for a nice comparison. Not sure why it has been listed for so long, seems like it would be very desireable year with the EFI (but not LT-1). Maybe it's the purple (Barney, anyone). I like the multi-colored bimini.

I spoke with the owner, and he is not even sure he wants to sell. Only needs the money for a down payment on a home, but will not find out if he is approved till Tuesday. He does not seem to be real negotiable on price. Even if its immaculate I cannot justify paying more than $9000 for it. There is one just like it about 9 hours away, only it has the standard EFI engine, but has PP SG going for $6500 . If it wasnt so far away I would have probably bought it. I just don't have the time for a road trip right now as I am working 6 days a week . I'm hoping to find a local one just like it at a reasonable price.

Owner with the purple 94' won't budge on price. Did not accept $9000 offer which is fair. Not gonna pay above value for it. Keep the search on.

Is this the same boat that was/is being misrepresented at 700 hours but really with 1700hours?

I think the florida boat had 1700 hrs, the california one has 700 hrs
He posted it for sale into the marketplace as well.

Thanks for the reply I wasn't sure what boat they were talking about.
Why hasn't the CA one sold in your opinion? Salt?

Dunno, maybe bc it's purple and an undesirable location, he states in thread no salt use.
