That thing is just BaD A&&! I'm envious of people that can do this. Figuring out how to put a diesel in a boat, converting it to a marine application, and pulling it off is impressive. My hats off to you guys!

That is incredible! What kind of horse power and torque do you think you'll get out of it? How does that compare to the gasoline engines that come standard in that boat?

This should make around 350 HP and 600 ftlbs. It's capable of a lot more but we are really looking for economy. We will turn it up once everything has been tested.

Call OJ Props and tell them what you are doing. I'm pretty sure Eric will work with you on loaners.

Eric at OJ is great but I would give the guys a call at Acme. That X-80 would love one of their new 15" props. A 15x15.75 or 15x17.75 would work very well or they will have better suggestions. Plus they have more cup sizes to try.

Acme Props - 1-888-661-Acme

I just tried one of their 15" props and it is outstanding.
