JIMKID Motorsports:
Could you give us an idea of what your complete engines ended up costing with all hardware and exhausts ready to drop in and run? Really nicely done, hope everything is working as planned.

Smarty:
Curious where that pricing came from. I was just reading a publication that listed the LS9's at about $32K, wonder which price is accurate. By the time you add even to your listed pricing on an LS9 plus freshwater cooling and all the other marine conversion parts and an exhaust our prices don't look so bad on a naturally aspirated longer lived aluminum LS big cube marine engine.

Best Regards,
Ray @ Raylar

LS motors make a lot more power more reliably than the old sbc

LS9 and LSA's are nice but what about the LSX

Also have VVT (variable valve timing) which helps increase the torque over a wide rpm range.

Check-out Weismens Drives site http://www.weismann.net/Press%20Page...AVRBayFair.htm

They put together a in-line (crank to crank) LS7 powered "V" hull that looks pretty impressive. The power is feed to 2 six speed trans. and then to 2 Weismen drives !!!!!

Whats most impressive about Weismen is they have been building bullet proof drives, tran-axles and transmissions for years. They have a great reputation. These guys are always thinking out side the box.
