I'm partial to my 94 TBI, 1:1. I think the 94 is the last of the great handling boats until about 98 or 99, JMHO. You can make a very simple mod to the TBI engine; get rid of the cast iron manifold and put on an Edlebrock aluminum manifold. Very easy to do but before you do it, take some time and smooth the runners inside the intake. You will be amazed how the boat runs. Hardest part about this is taking the new intake to the machine shop so that can match the TBI ports, standard Chevy TBI units were a bit smaller than the one MC uses for the 350. MC used the ones of the 454 engines to get more fuel.

But I agree with all others, get a boat that's been loved and taken care of which usually means all things were taken care of including good maintenance. Good luck
