the $3700 blower must be a "marine" version. that usually means it just costs more.

I have seen as much as 35% difference depending on the shop.

I worked years ago at B&M in blower
development and trust me Automotive
Blowers will not hold up in Marine
service.
Summet is a Automotive supplier and
sells only those designed for cars as
far as I know.
Rotors are made of different materials they are designed for HiRpm, At least
they were when I was involved.
