Are you local to Indiana? We might be able to work something out!

All said and done arrive at or slightly below the price of a turn key stock marine replacement engine. In my opinion this looks like a solid upgrade. On a personal level if my Prostar was chevy powered, I would be on the 1 meal a day lifestyle, picking up cans, whatever it takes to hear the whine of a blower while ripping down the river at 6 am waiting for skiers to show up.


thanks for your input

I would say that there is a market for it. MC charges almost that for the next size engine which doesn't get you 100 HP. Maybe it's easier to sink that cost into a new boat boat purchase (which most are probably financing and looking at impact to monthly payment) vs paying out cash for an existing boat upgrade.

Probably a stupid question...

But have you guys rolled this out to Dealers to offer this for sale? Like someone on here mentioned, selling with the initial sell of the boat and baking into the financing/monthly payment.

No we have not but that would be something we could do and is probably a good way to go about it!

That engine could use a bump, 100 hp over $$ for a new boat might gain more interest? Might want to include items in the kit: scroll supercharger, pulleys, belt, air to water intercooler and hoses, custom loaded computer program etc etc...Just my .02

My question would be motor box height increase, guess it depends on main engine?
I tend to agree with this comment. Adding HP to my RTP to get it more solidly into the 40s for pullling multiple barefooters is of interest.

Not sure I'd pony up $8.5K but not sure I wouldn't

I think your price is right on... which SC are you using? A magnuson runs about $6500 with accessories you mentioned except they offer hand held type tuners that probably won’t work with the current computers (MEFI 4)?

Also, Gen I and II engines weren’t supported by intake mounted SCs, I would have loved to had a Maggie for my LT1 (genII) or 98 Vortec (genI) engine that wasn’t hanging off the front of the engine.

For the guys needing a little more HP nitrous is always an option�� You don’t need a big shot and only works at WOT.
