I change it out for new every 45 minutes. Well that is what the doc says.

It's pretty simple:

If you have a 496 HO and plan to keep it a 496 HO then there is no need to worry about a forged crank.

If you plan to make a monster out of it, a more significant concern would be the lack of forged pistons, not the crank.

As far as the $20k upgrade to the HP motor, there's a lot of parts you can buy and cram in the 496.

I prefer a 4.5" bore motor, regardless of what paint is on the outside (or 4.470")...

And I kind of agree with dockrocker. If you can't show us a picture of a VERY similar boat as your boss's boat, then don't show us any picture at all. Doesn't help anything.

As far as oils, spec is the major concern - not brand.
