Hey everyone...I just joined...I`m knee deep in boat conversion for more serious fishing...Striper fishing is the extint but in the onstart of rigging boat for more offshore work...I put a gm 5.7 remanufactured long block in last spring with a fast fuel injection,msd ignition etc. but already wanting a diesel...I have a few buddies at a marine diesel outfit..I`m thinking have them keep eyes open for a great deal on a great candidate for rebuild...I could fix her up while I`m up and running and absorb the cost in a slower manor. Probably need a new gear as well. I`ll post some pics soon...luhrs 30..prelude of the mainship pilot 30. I would lose my wet exhaust and go to stack and glass exhaust holes up un stern. no worries backing down....I want more power and torque....any enging ideas?
