Default Need 540 Engine Builder

I am about ready to pull the triger and have an engine built and I need a builder.

I want to build a std deck 540 with all the good stuff, no junk foreign parts. I am looking for an engine which will have the following,
-Merlin or Dart block, forged internals, alumn heads, APR bolts, etc Capable of 900+HP
-8.5 to max 9.0 compression
-port matched single plane manifold
-heads- AFR 315ccCNC or JimV ported ones, cometic gasket or O-ringed
-about 650-700HP N/A, max rpm of 5600
-cam- hydraulic roller, ?crane 731 or 741
-rockers- comp or jessel
-nickerson carb, not dominator
-Eichert valve covers 2 piece

-After I get it in the boat and broken in I will then supercharge it with some of my centrifugal parts or get the RTech setup and run 8-9 pounds boost and see 900-1000 Hp and TQ.

Any interested engine builder Please PM me with your thoughts and price range. Thanks Marty.

This engine uses "Eagle" rods from China....... and a "non descript" forged crank... probably also from China.....

Gene at Lightning Performance (Lake of the Ozarks) does a great job. Several OSOers have had Gene build their motors recently (me included). He is a perfectionist when it comes to putting them together and will not use anything but quality parts. He also has 4 blower motors (2 pairs) for sale if anyone is interested.

His number is (573) 374-7974.

Mine are 540 Dart Big M tall decks, SRP pistons, carrillo rods, GM perf heads, 9.75 to 1 CR, Dart single intake, Dominator 1050 carb (rebuilt and flowed by Nickerson), MSD 7 ignition with pro billet distributor. They run as smooth as my old 454s. Estimated 680 to 700 HP. Runs on 91 octane. He named them Thump and Bump.

Here is a picture of my recently built motors.
