Turbo ilmores, i think they would give the 1350's a run for the money.

The Porsche engine thing's been done before. They tend to use 928 engines though, not the flat sixes.

I can't find it, but i think Porsche actually made a few 928 powered boats themselves (not Porsche Design, but the car company).

I used to have a great wallpaper of a boat, hatch off, with a couple of Torque motors throwing a huge roost. I wish I could find that.

I remember back in the 80s in Point Pleasant Beach, there was a raceboat that showed up for the Bennihana with twin Lambo V12s. I can't remember which one. I remember on the back of the semi trailer, they had dual lambo crests. As a kid, I thought that was super cool.

Rolls Royce/Merlin V12, a WOW factor and would actually work well in a offshore boat.

Not much use for anything except good old American iron
in my boat like the twin BBC I have now.

What do I think of all these exotic european cars and their
engines?

What's the difference between me in my Dodge Caliber and the guy in the (Porsche, BMW, Mercedes, Ferrari, whatever)?

I know my car is a POS.

Yep, similar to these, but I believe they are at more like 1,700hp these days. They are also reliable. Imagine the sound two of these would make at 7k rpm?

I was referring to the "Cammers", Chrysler whined and cried til they booted these bad boys from nascar. I think they were only used in drag racing from then on.

If less than 900 hp. Lambo. Can't beat the scream of those.

If more than 900 hp, this baby. And just for kicks, gold plate the phucker. http://falconerengines.com/bio/bio_v12.php

Fantasy engine. Bugatti W16.

All dry to the tips.
