very interesting project - you noted that the diesel will be left stock without turbos, but in on road vehicle applications i thought the LMM had a single turbo.

The kodiak LMM looks to be rated at 620lbs of torque, which certainly isn't double what the big block put out, shoot my MCX is rated at 365 lbs.

The most important choice will be the prop and transmission gearing... since the LMM hits its max torque around 1,600 rpms i'd have to imagine a HUGE prop or a geared up transmission, with the red line at 3,250 rpms you'll need to have a plan for the top end too
