This brings up a good question: What parts need to be "marine"?

Some obvious answers are carb, fuel pump, alternator, anything electrical or dealing with fuel delivery.

Anything special about intake manifolds or heads that makes them "marine" or are street applications fine?

10 years ago I would have replaced them all with auto parts because they are cheaper, but 10 years ago I was kinda stupid. Safety didnt seem as important.

You have it right. Basically, electricals, fuel pump, carb.

Intake manifold and heads are automotive.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
