Try www.chiefengines.com. I don't know what your budget is or what you have in mind but I've heard they are very good.

Kieth Eikert is the closest to you, he is just west of Daytona. Otherwise CHIEF CHIEF CHIEF.

PAT AT PERFORMANCE MARINE! HE'S REALLY GOOD AND WOULD BE LESS EXPENSIVE THAN CHIEF OR EIKERT.

Ive got Eickert building me a pair of 675s in my 37 A.T., awesome and reliable parts, very understated, a change of a few pulleys and a chiller produces a still reliable 860hp, and most important, the name will get you great resale, just my .02.

PP RACE, I LIKE YOUR BOATS COCKPIT COLOR, IS THAT IRIS , AND VIOLET IN YOUR CABIN, , LOOKS REAL GOOD. I JUST GOT FINISHED PICKING THE COLORS FOR MINE LAST WEEK
