What's he looking to get out of it???


FWIW...I have the zz502's in my boat, but they have a few upgrades One of them being Inconel valves and different cam and springs. They haven't vibrated themselves to death yet!!! and I don't exactly go easy on them.

They put the 620 h.p. version in a car last night on "RIDES" on TLC. once they got it tuned right it seemed to run real sweet.

About $3500 parts and labor.

So, taking that into account - with a reputable builder - and using the 620 hp. version so you can run it on lower octane, you could have a hell of a nice motor for well under $20K? Beats the hell out of that Viper package, I think!?

That would be a sweet setup for that money if they had reliability!!!
