Always liked the lsx builds, wonder how they would do in a 36...
I was talking $20,000/ each for motor only, and so far I have in fact found 2 sources for these engines. sounds like there are several people who dont feel these engines are available in this price range.

You mean boat motors are different than car motors?

I got a buddy who has a cousin with a Cigar boat, he put twin Chevelle SS396 motors in it. Ran over 100 MPH.
