Unless I misunderstood Craig the last time we talked, he is selling the Big Cheif heads and the Quad Rotor Whipple set-up and making the motors N/A, for better reliability. I think he is just trying to find out what these parts are worth.

I've decided to keep my engines that are in my boat and change them up a bit. By that I mean removing the big chief heads and quad setup and changing the pistons, cams,etc...

Just trying to get a ball park figure of what this stuff costs new before I change my classified ad.
Your intake is an indy intake which, will work with any blower set-up, Not a whipple product or whipple specific.
I tried to find your add to see what kind of intercooler you have. Usually on the big chief, they use a standard intercooler as well.Do you have the 2.3 or the 3.3 whipples, I can't remember.
As you probably know I bought some new 3.3's this spring, which I love.Have you considered just detuning your set-up for the reliablity your looking for. You should be able to make some great power with a Hydrolic roller cam and mild boost, this would be alot of fun in your boat and be as reliable as the N/A engine. I think your going to find that the market for the whipples is not alot better than trying to sell the whole package, especially if you have the 2.3l version. Just from my experience.

Thanks. From what I've been told by a few people, the reliability thing comes mostly from having the big chief heads. Something about the valve angles. I've been running the boat ....and it is an azzload of fun!!!! .....but just doesn't fit our style of boating....or my wallet!

I was told the same thing about the reliablity of the big chief heads. So I went with regular 24 degree brodix. Good luck selling them and enoy them untill it happens.
