Motor mounts have been made. Now time for oil pan mod, this will be a bit more technical.

Being new to my own boat, having bought a duramax to pull it and selling diesel fuel for a living, I am interested...

Oil pan pretty much done except a trip to the powder coat shop. We ended up modifying the stock pan and it worked out very well.

We are located just outside of Placerville in Diamond Springs. We specialize in Duramax diesels so putting one in a boat just makes sense. Trips across Lake Tahoe are in the plans for this summer.

looks like all the mounting issues are figured out whats the plan for controls? PPE got something that will help you out like throttle setup and engine harness. the 8.1 had a dbw wire throttle right? whats this going to have? that pan and engine mount looks factory good work. maybe MC will check this thread out and offer a real diesel not a 4.5 that is Europe only
