Other than the delicate low tension metric oil ring on the j/e pistons gm installs in these motors they are good beefy ,motors. The 450 hp 502 h.o is pretty much the same motor as a 502 mpi (the long block). Whats the name of your boat? Before summers over maybe i'll see you at hardy pond,Smitty

What's wrong with your motors Don? I thought they were fairly new.

Ian they are on the home stretch I built them about 350 hrs ago. I'm no engine builder and have had my share of problems and am just plain sick of wrenching. I need bullet proof power or just get out of boating all together. I'm trying to decied wether to Have a set of 496's built locally at Performance Engineering or sell what I have and buy a set of Crate motors. The motors that I've built are 330's on steroids still all cast internals so I would buy a rotating assembly and have Performance machine the blocks and assemble them. The combination that I have now made 505 hp at 5600 but really dont care about the power anymore just want turn key stuff! Its been two seasons of wrenching trying to keep them going and I'm sick of it! I have a friend that has a 1989 Baja with a 365 hp mag in it and never turns a wrench....what gives? I never stop!!!
There I feel better.......sorry to vent, Hows the BT running?
