327's are wussy's in a boat, not enough stroke or torque to overcome the drag, Build the Biggest N/A and go from there...

I was just thinking the 327 cause it would rev like crazy.
the boat is 23.6 feet and 2948lb and I should have my bravo drive next week
They can also stroke the sbc to 454s now

Its a boat not a Indy car plus bravos dont like over 6000 on the input shaft.. Boats like torque!!
383 with a blower best of both worlds..

the idea of a blower under the hatch is sweet I think.
I actually have a 454 mag coming with the bravo but I kind of would like to stay with a small block

Speaking of .....a max cubic inch injected LSX set up would be killer.

Eddie can you get an aluminum LSX yet?

I'm not sure. Haven't tried yet.
I would love to build a big inch small block based on the LSX. They are some wicked little blocks capable of handling over2500 hp and, I think, over 500 ci. The all LS class of drag racing has some guys making oer 3000 hp with some gorilla turbos. Not real good for a boat, but it sure is cool.

How cool would a 500+ ci LSX series small block with a 5.0L Whipple be?
