Default Best reliable 750-850hp efi motors with 1 year warranty?

wondering who is currently building a n/a efi reliable engine package, researched Zul, Raylars new 765, Dereberry's new 750, , Eickert ,Jc, Pfaff, all, seem very good. has anybody had good experiences with any of these , looking for 200-300 reliable hours with routine service and maintenance, believe the Konrad Ace, or arneson 7 will be the preferred drive pack, believe at least Raylar offers a complete warrantied package. comments on drives appreciated too. thanks

JC seems to have a GREAT reputation with his motors and service. Can't go wrong with that fact

Jim you posted the best in the business, all great names, and reputations. Customers sell motors.

Here is another one, moved from louisianna, working with the Nashville Cats boat, Bruce, and is in his own new shop in the Nashville area. Edde Young, a personal friend of mine who built me my last 750's in my 4300 Nortech. 504-416-3607 Good luck. Jeff

As most of you know, I'm well into my third season running Konrad drives behind a pair of 700 hp blower motors from Dorr's Marine Engines in Windham Maine. I've now got over 250 trouble free HARD hours on the Konrads and pushing 300 hrs on the motors.
I could not be happier with this package. It's been as reliable as an old tractor! How's three seasons of doing nothing but change oil (every 10 hrs) and a new set of plugs at the beginning of the season.
It's not rocket science. With the right recipe and proper ingredients (quality components) we can really enjoy our toys the way they were intended to be used
