96 PS 190 PCM ZR6 Conversion

Figured I'd take the advice of CruisinGA and start a thread on my ZR6 conversion. Pretty sure not too many guys will actually refer to this how to thread but it is the off season@ ericB I got the motor through Discount Inboard Marine from PCM. It is a leftover rated at 375HP @ Ben I was looking into a repower for ZO capabilities and when I inquired at DIM they gave me a great price on the ZR6 with a new 1.1 tranny. I'm selling my power package complete and unloading my PPSG to a buddie offset to the cost. Right now I'm looking at a custom driveshaft as the motor has to be pushed forward to get clearance for the bell housing, and maybe a spacer plate for the front mounts to get the motor a little higher. Should have more pics after the weekend. Pretty cool that the red matches my boat!

First and foremost, awesome project! The motor looks good sitting there. How far forward does the motor need to slide?

I have a 96 Prostar with an lt1 Corvette engine in it rated around 320 horsepower...I can only imagine that boat with another 50 to 60 horsepower....wow! if the perfect pass stargazer doesn't work out with your buddy can I be first on the list?

Buoy- I travel to NYC and area on the reg for work. You need to finish this up by springtime so I can get a barefoot pull behind it! It should be rocket fast!

Thanks! Right now it looks like I have to go all the way forward. Going to do a final mock up on Saturday and hopefully drill and tap new holes, get the motor bolted in and lined up so I can measure and order a new driveshaft.
