Default Lake of the Ozarks Engine Builder recommendations

I'm looking to freshen/rebuild or re-power my 33 PowerPlay over the off season. Who do you recommend at the lake or possibly in KC to rebuild or build new motors? I want to stick around 500-550hp with solid reliability. Thanks in advance for your advice.

13 oz Depends on whether you are wanting to break down the engines totally or just add on new/ improved parts. I have had real good luck with PDQ Marine, located at the Lake. ( near the Dam )
Dan, one of the owners, just "added" some horsed last winter and he is a certified Merc Mechanic. ( VERY meticulous with his projects )
Give them a call and discuss your changes...

Thank you for the feedback. I will give them a call. I'll want a complete tear down. I've owned the boat for 10 yrs. I've put 350 hrs on them,had new gauges when I bought it. Previous owner estimated about 150 hours. I want to know what I have for sure. They are 454's bored to 468, dyno'd at 500hp.

13oz I have the same set up, had T420 blocks (454), installed 496 guts and crank. no dyno time, but I think i'm a little north of 500 hp.
Tell Dan, Shannon sent you, with the fountain. They did a complete Konrad conversion, new custom CMI exhaust, along with a bunch of minor stuff.

Myrick used to use Eagle Machine in Buffalo, MO when he was at Nauti. Not sure who he uses now that he's at PBC.
