Ray, great results as always, but I have to ask: what is the point of going to the effort and R&D of the Dart block and trying to push this engine to 1300 hp when GM has pulled the plug on its production? It will probably never be as strong as the old BBC block and parts will never be as plentiful either.

I can see the benefit of your kits boosting the stocker to its limits, but once a new block is needed why not just build a good ole BBC?

Wink Why stay with the 8.1L 496 ???

rexcramer1:
to answer your question as simply as possible, because Mercury, Volvo, Crusader, Kodiak, Marine Power assembled and distributed over 50,000 496 (8.1L) marine engines during the period between 2001 and 2010. a great deal of these 40,000+ ended up in late model performance boats. If one has to start over with a new (old) BBC based engine all the accessories such as water pumps, mounts, EFI, electronics, harnesses, many upgraded exhausts, fresh water cooling systems, oil filter and cooler systems etc. must be purchased again and this adds a great expense to the upgrade costs. The Raylar HO600 with its forged internals and upgrades is a prime example of this situation. A boater with a stock 496Mag (375HP) or HO (425hp) spends about $15K and ends up with an all electronic, EFI ,Guardian equipped freshwater cooled reliable 625-650 HP -500 cubic inch engine for his boat. Try to duplicate that with a whole new package. I think you would be talking $35K to $38K duplicate apples to apples.

Best Regards,
Ray @ Raylar

Hey Blane

Good to hear from you on OSO!
I think your Raylar HO600 "Purple Monstas" were some of the first of the Raylar HO600's and if my memory serves me right along with Velocity Vectors, date back to 2005 and 2006.
Email your mailing address to the tech Raylar email address and I will mail you two new HO600 replacement stickers for your top plates.

Best Regards,
Ray @ Raylar

If it's not an XR kiss it good-bye. Especially on Lake St. Clair. Mine lasted 7 hours after my repower and I'm running less HP on a smaller boat. Anyway, congrats and let us know how she runs. Good job, Ray.
