Default Baja 275 with 600 SCi update Projekt

Hello guys
First,sorry if i find here not all the right words to explain my projekt!
i drive now some years baja 232 in germany and swap last winter to an 275 in mint condition.boat was 2005 with 496 Ho from first owner and only 49 hours on it!
I modified last winter the engineroom and some inner parts,like Jl soundsystem and more.Boat was change to new 14pin harness ,smartcraft gauges and eco monitor and some more.Batterys in the rearseat and so on!
i take my 8.2 from the 232 in it! It was the new 8.2,no old engine.also uptated with whipple software and cmi.
the 275 make 72,7 mls on the smartcraft gps!
now this engine is sold and i get 600SCi with 62 hours on motor and new headers.I have an new Hp transom for it and new XR drive!
thats the facts.as here in germany is not much knowing about projekts like this,and i think i need next weeks some infos,i like to start this here!
maybe anyone done before an 600er or more in the 275??
i hope the new xr with hold a long time,as my boat is only for summerholiday and some days on the rhine river here. i drive no races or so,only sometime some fast minutes!
best regards, Michael

I would add a full Hydraulic steering all the way to the helm if you haven't already. You're gonna need it once you get that 600SCi dialed in.

update your insurance on you and the boat and be safe.....Id a thought the whippled 496 would make more power than the 600sci

Thanks for Comments!
i try 2018 the boat without hydraulic steering as the budget is to low to buy all! the 600 SCi is heavy enough for my money!
Steering and transom are new and i make some extra bolts without play for the standart hydraulic part!So the drive is real straight! At moment standart dualtrimzylindertabs from boat leveler mount and i like to make longer plates under them.I real like to do this upgrades next time,but need money for all this goodies!

496 with Whipple maybe makes more Power,but hold not long time! The 600er has much more Air for tune up over 900 HP next years! But then also need other drive.For first time i hope the new XR with hold,and also have 2 Year gurantee from merc.

Some questions about the engine! make 2008 and 100 hours used.Then get new longblock and headers from merc 2010 and used 60 ours.Then stored in icefree garage and also inside conserved with storeaged oil!Now i will awake the engine after 6-7 Years! My plan! All fluids new,impeller new and starting without sparks to get oilpressure. then sparks in and try to start normal! Are there any other options to do???
I real like to show some pics from my Baja ,but not allowed to load up here!

Hello
Small updated!
I bought now PAC Valsesprings from Teague,as they the orginal ones from Merc.As i am no Racer,i think its best to let them orginal.
Also get with much luck here on OSO and Driveguardian that now will be adjust for my boat and engine.
The SCi will picked up next weekend and than it can go forward!

Sounds like a cool project. Yes to hydraulic steering and some good tabs if you want to use the power in less than good conditions. I like the mercury ITS system because it incorporates the HP transom assembly with a very clean hydraulic steering setup as well as 7” of set back.

As far as the valve springs go, or all the valve train for that matter, if you ever want to add power via Whipple upgrades or something I would look into stronger springs and better rockers.

lets see some pictures!
