Default Thinking about repowering questions

looking at a sunsation 32 that has 6.2mpi motors. I would like to put 500efi blue motors or 496s in it. Boat has bravo 1 drives. My question are this is kinda a winter project on a beat deal kinda budget. Are complete 500s hard to find whats average selling price? Would it be a pretty easy swap. Anything im overlooking

Make sure you have room width wise, the big block is wider than the small block or else your into filling the transom.

On a budget I wouldn’t buy blue motors. You can make facsimiles of them cheaper. They definitely bring a premium, but you could resell them later.

I rebuilt these over last winter, Id warn against buying anything that came from salt use, there desirable and not not cheap

Winter repower 500 EFI's
