Definatly go with Falcon. I was out there yesterday bringing them my new exhaust and I spent alot of time talking to Joe, their main engine builder. Super nice guy and his main goal is solid power with reliability. They keep a fairly low profile but do a great job taking care of customers and their boats. They work on boats like the OL pictured above with a pair of 1300hp motors, and others with stock power. I'm sure they will have no problem building whatever you want. 631-723-0794

falcon, MRD and zul if you want to spend big $. Falcon might not be as much $$$ as the others.

I think Full Throttle and tom would biuld you a damn good engine and not charge you insane money.

If i needed a new engien i'd probably go with tom.

Blue Lightning is in CT, they're definitely worth a call. DJD had nothing but praise for them.

use the volvo flywheel housing cover from your current BB, I had to get a new Merc one because the motor I bought has a volvo one on it , Chris Martin may still have the one we pulled off mine. BTW 425hp will put that in the 70 range
personally I wouldnt want too much more HP , remember its a STEPPED HULL Opps thats another thread

Johnny,
I am presently building a 540. I am doing it myself, but I got the short block kit ( block, crank, rods, pistons, rings and bearings ) from Scott Schafiroff. He had the best deals by far for the parts. Give them a call, ask for Vinny B. Tell him Vinny P. with the 540 gave you his number. 631-218-7530..
