Probably, but what are you going to do? The dealer is in financial trouble apparently. This guy bought as is.

I think many of us have had somewhat similar experiences.

There is little or no recourse. The best bet IMO is to move on.

Pull the motor and drive, fill the hole and bolt on some 300xs opti's. 600 reliable hp.

Plenty of COMPLETE motors in the classifieds for 10k.

Sucks go to a set of aspirated motors.. Sell the blowers and other parts to help offset the cost of the motors.

Good luck

Let us know what and how you did it!!

Hey Brian. Chris here. I would highly suggest calling some of these builders suggested on here. You can easily have a built motor Naturally Aspirated (non blower) for no more than 8K with at least 500hp and have it installed for way cheaper. You'll still have enough power you want, granted you wont be going 80+mph, but it WILL be enough!! Like we talked about, its all who you know. Pick your parts up from this guy (Ill help you if needed) and go to a better builder. LETS GET YOUR BABY ON THE WATER THIS SUMMER!!
