Default How about a VW powered go fast?

The Tourag diesel motor is 335HP with about 525 ft lbs of torque. Could it be done?

why would you want it over a yanmar or the like? making that engine into a dependable marine engine would be big $$$$ and you are still way short on power compared to what is already available in the marine world...
