I'm sure you can find a motor spec'ed to the RTP for very very close to it. There shouldn't be a need to change out the ECM or the FI system.

Exhaust manifolds.

$2650 for a long block.

I can't, driveway might be filling up soon. I'm keeping my eyes open over here for you. Still some Sandy salvaged boats/motors popping up once in a while.

9k for a used motor is insane. You may consider contacting Affordable Fuel Injection here:
http://www.affordable-fuel-injection...rine-19-1.html

Maybe they can discount it since you have some of the parts?

Also I would reference this:

I'm thinking there must be a similar automotive application of the intake manifold. Have you contact indmar for alternatives?

I would never give someone a serious offer that might tempt them to give up a project.

The emotional fall out of starting and failing something (particularly when it is a restoration project like this) will break a man's spirits.

Fine 1850 and you can tow it to me.
