This Duramax was developed right here in Grand Rapids Michigan (Exergy Engineering). Kinda hard for you to take credit for all Tom's work, developement and dyno time of the marinization and HP. improvements ?? Seems I even watched Tom build the stainless headers too just before the 2007 Miami boat show.

Good Luck with what ever your hoping to bring to the market.

Good Morning Jeff,

I had checked that link out in the earlier post.
Tom and his partners @ Exergy Engineering put a lot of work into the Duramax with many more options on the table for some great power. Here is a link for them, read the very bottom paragraph below the company symbols, (very diverse staff) http://www.exergyengineering.com/about.html ( Quoted from Exergy Engineering's website, Our associates are plenty busy outside of work as well. Some of them are racers, some are engine builders, and some are machine builders. Our associates are members of state and international motor sports hall of fames and one associate even held a world speed record and was included in the Guinness Book of World Records. It is safe to say that our associates know what it means to be successful both at work and outside of work. )

Jon

New to this post...and I enjoyed it immensely...especially the Robert Cummings piece which, predictably, was lost on the "yoot" around here.

Anyway I would suggest that a diesel engine weighing less than 1000#'s putting out 550 hp would be the perfect powerplant. It should push a 32-36 foot cat 110-120 mph, get double the fuel economy of a gasoline package (put that into your fuel cost equation)...and 5-10 times the engine life. If it were me...and I probably would be a potential customer....I would marry the motors to #6 drives with tubes to aerate the props on takeoff.

All in all.... a bulletproof package.

Sadly, I don't see anything valid in this thread to make me think that such a package exists.

That would open a few eyes at a poker run.
