Default Looking for info : Scarab 19.5 Jet Boat (???)

It looked cool, so I bought it... dont know chit about them other than its a V6 4.3L Chevy based Vortex motor with a Volvo PJX Jet Drive.

Has only 156hrs and the owners claims 50 mph, so I guess 42mph..

Cool bucket seating and center throttles sealed the deal..

Anyone have any info? Should be easy to bolt in a 350 V8, But would impellers be an issue?

cool looking boats, before I bought my previous jet, I had looked at one of those with a shoe-horned 454 in it. Looks like a fun and cheap day on the water.

Well it's home and stuffed in the garage out back..

I Have found online that these boats don't like big blocks or heavy small blocks out back.

But I do have a pro charger available ..
