2009 X80 Rebuild after sinking!

I haven't posted anything for a while however just finished the X80 rebuild after it sank off Sovereign Island, Gold Coast - Australia. A big thanks goes to Scott Birdsall from MasterCraft Services in Australia and MasterCraft in the USA. The new 6.2L OPS Ilmors fitted straight in replacing the 6.0L Crusaders. Only a couple of engine mount holes had to be drilled and tapped as I wanted to use the new engine mounts. Also had to mount the throttle position sensors as the X80 had throttle cables. All exhausts, harness and cooling hoses fitted easily. We plugged the 2009 boat harness to the 2104 Ilmor harness and every gauge, engine sync, perfect pass and computer worked perfectly. Scotty pre-delivered the engines, inspected the install, ran them up on the trailer and even came for the first sea trial. Thanks Mate.
