I've owned 1 TBI ('95 190), and 2 LT1's ('97&'98 190's). All 1:1 trannys. You'll have no issues with either performance wise, so I'd buy the boat based on condition first, regardless of motor. The LT1 does have a cool factor though, if you have the hood up! AWSA approved the LT1 w/ powerslot for record capable tournaments, so there are plenty of them out there. As mentioned, a slot will provide a snappier hole shot, and a slight reduction in top end. If you want a little extra oomph out of the TBI, use a K&N air filter and lube with Royal Purple. It won't be a huge difference, but you should gain a couple mph top end.
