Best of luck to you on your project! Keep us posted with pics as things move along. I am in the process of changing some things out on my H2X, so I will have some misc. engine items for sale if any of it would work for you (headers, etc.). Good luck.

My budget is tight so if I can't find a good deal on a 496 or 502 I may have to settle for another 454. Let me know if your buddy is looking to sell and how much he is willing to let it go for. Thanks bro.

What do you guys think about this engine? I don't know anything about Volvos so any input would help. I have a bravo one drive on my boat.....could this setup work?

great engine. i have been racing Volvo powered boats for about 5 years now and they are fantastic. i would swap the Merc stuff out of my Scarab in a heartbeat for a pair of DPX instalations any day.
