Good luck Frank, ask all questions up front in regards to the engines, and parts in them. You want to know the quality of parts in them in order to justify the day you open the motors you wont be surprised. Find out the top end boost that they have been using and look for a knock meter in the panel for each engine.

interesting thread. did anyone mention the fact that big blown gas engines are a pain in the ass? 10 hours since rebuild? well, then it's probably time for another one of those...

Although it's for totaly different reasons, Fabio has a simple way of achieving this, he has the intercoolers on his Seatek race boats fed by a seporate scoop/water pick-up, and no pump, completely independant of the engine cooling system, this way, the intercooler gets force fed plenty of cool water, but only when the boat is at speed. in his case it's to do with warm up and reducing smoke from the high HP racing diesels, but the principle would apply perfectly to your point.

Sorry WickedWon can't post at this time. He's to busy in the bilge, he'll get back to as soon as possible. ( Probably about November).
