I have been thinking about this motor since I first heard of it several months ago. The problems I see with it are that it is not a marine motor. You have to pay for a carb and distributor you can't use.. If you have salt water in the motor, you can't use the head gaskets at all. I would be leary about the heads themselves unless you can flush it out everytime you use it. The other question I have is regarding the cam profile. The listing says 632/632 lift, 254/264 duration @ .050 but what about the lobe seperation and centerline? I have a friend who works at a GM dealer, I just talked to him today about attemtping to find out more information. I will post it when and if I get it..

What do you guys think?

Later,

I have not seen anything regarding a short block 572. Do you have a GM part # or any other information?

It's probably the best thing that came out of GMPP in a long time, but at $12K+tax and shipping...you could build much better for the same or little more.
The block is already at .060 over...Whats up with that?
Thats 6-7 seasons or 2 rebuilds off its service life.
And the power output is not all that much... remember that it has to be spun at about 5400 for marine useage with a reversion free hyd roller cam...add $ there.
Don't get me wrong its not that im flaming this motor its just not for powerboats.

I's like to see this as a short block..............I think that adding the right heads / cam / intake, you could get up to 700 HP, naturally aspirated.

pace parts show the part #'s at

complete deluxe motor #12498793
long block #12498792
partial #12499190

at this time those are not good part #'s ive already checked. the last i heard they were still in the testing stage with the motors that was a couple months ago. but this is the first time ive seen Part #'s so ill be check it out from time to time.

Back4more i agree with you that you could have one built for that money, i can buy for cost and thats what im looking at.

A short block without a camshaft would be the hot setup! GM could sell alot of them.

Except for the camshaft, I like the long block engine for marine use.

If only I could afford to lay out the cash and not feel guilty about it!

Go to racingjunk.com and see the classifieds for engines and components. There are a lot of top notch parts that can be had for $12,000.00. probably $4500.00 for a short block, $3000.00 for CNC heads, $800.00 for roller cma, $350 for intake, $400 oil pan, $500 for pushrods and misc. and you still have $3000.00 left over. someone would probably assemble this and test it for $1000.00. Use the extra money to buy some good exhaust and you'll run away and hide from the GM motor with the extra 100 hp. I know exactly about a setup like this, with Canfield 310 heads the motor made 755 [email protected], at 9.5:1, torque was amazing from 3000 up. As a matter of fact that motor is for sale with headers, intake to pan for $16,500.00 including a set of GIL big guns, all billet 4340, dyno time only. Boat was sold before installation.
