Great dependable power if you treat it like it's suppose to be treated. If you like running above 70% power for long runs its much better than a reciprocating engine and the fuel burn is relatively close for the same power. Below 70% power she stays pretty thirsty burning around 25 GPH at Idle between 43-50% power.

This is what I started with!

I used the lid as the backing plate behind the calipers and the boiler portion as the collection and evacuation housing. I machined a alternator fan to fit the shaft and a RC airplane prop spinner to smooth the airflow going into the fan. Try not to laugh too hard! LOL

I thought the boat was pretty nice straight out of the factory but that's a wicked upgrade. Great thread, thanks for posting.

The complete package that I removed from the Warlock is for sale. 18K for the package, Motor by itself $7500.00, Key to flywheel including wiring harness. Complete drive coupler to prop, 12K. I will not part out the drive.
The engine still has the factory seal in place and never tampered with. 263 hours on setup and was running great when it was pulled.
