I keep adding up the component costs and its not too far off the cost of a full turn key engine with no warranty so thats what is sending me the turn key route. Talked to several marine rebuilders here and they end up about the same costs once all the bells and whistles are on it- I cant seem to make the money add up to less. I have really gone round and round on this- Would actually like to find someone who wants to upgun and sell off a low time engine but no luck.
Wingnut, I have a 96 ProStar w/ the 275 TBI engine. I'm considering doing a total repower so i can upgrade to Zero Off. I would be selling my motor as a complete package less the transmission. Motor was freshened up a few years ago when I installed a closed cooling system. I'm trying to dig up a picture. A complete package, probably 300+ hours since it was rebuilt. Extras include Orca closed cooling system, & Perfect Pass speed control. ECM, throttle body, wiring harness, mounts, brackets, etc all in great condition. PM me your contact info if interested.
