Name this 190 engine

Going to buy my first Mastercraft in a few weeks, and would like another opinion on the powerplant. I know only what the owner tells me, so if you could, please lend a second or third opinion which engine I am about to purchase. Boat is a 91 Prostar 190.

Thanks

Looks like an Indmar chev 350 to me, but I'm a Ford guy. Welcome to Team Talk. Good luck on the purchase.

Thanks for the quick replies. That is what the owner told me, but after doing so much reading on here it seems to be quite rare for a 91 to have the 454. Just making sure I wasnt getting taken for a ride by buying an unfamiliar product sight-unseen.

Should be plenty of grunt to pop my skinny 155lb *** out of the water on my ski.

Thanks

Big block chevy, most likely a 454.

That's not a prostar 190 is it? With that base under the drivers seat looks like a tri-star or maybe a barefoot edition boat?

How about some pics of the boat itself? Let's see what you have there sir.

Two different boats in the post with two pics.

The one with that seat base looks like a 240.
