You need a set of 500hps in that thing.

By the time you really get those motors in, you will be looking at 25K.

502s would be a nice shot in the arm for the banana boat too... cheaper yet.

Talk to Scott at Dyno Flo. I have good experienc with him and good technical support.

His engines come ready to go, but you will have to transfer all of your accesories from your old engines to the new ones. You will probably want to upgrade your exhaust.

By the time you spend the 8-9k apeice and then get the rest of the stuff you don't know you need yet, you really will spend 25k real fast.

Dyno flo is the best way to go for the money.

Good luck.

Usually you can get 3-4 k for the old motors.

Scott is the man to ask for and he is the one building the engines. I had excellent experiences with him with the exception of a hard time getting the Dyno sheets. It helps to deal with the person that actually has the hands one your engine. If you have a problem with the "attack dog" I could see the potential for one person to blame the other and so on. Kind of makes you wonder why 1800runsnew is even involved.
