88. Chris craft 260 stinger, to single bbc.
 
Any toughts? I was thinking something like mk4 or mk5 bbc 489cid stroker with 781 heads. 224/236 camshaft. Shooting for +500hp. Barvo 1 drive. X-dimension approx 17.5".

I also had. Stjnger 260! Id rather have twin smaller engines than one bigger one... they are heavy for 26 boat friend of mine had a powerquest 260 single 454 and burned same amount of gas i did at cruising speed... why not keep 2 engines?

I just hate the maintenace of two motor And drives, other thing is I have to build two motors. I have been digging old threads and found one member who got better top speed with single 496ho. Also I was thinking that taking some weight from the back would be a good medicine for stinger hop. Just my toughts. I have to build new transom anyway.

when i had my 260 i had also heard they function well as a single, especially with todays props and ease of building power . Out of all the boats ive had i think i have a soft spot for my stinger the most. Just loved that boat and all it was good for.

Have you done something more on your project?
I also have a Chris Craft 260 Stinger 1987 year model, the white one from Sweden with 496 Mag and Bravo One X with extensionbox. We talked to each other a few weeks ago.
Very interesting to know how it goes.
