Default WANTED: 500EFIs, HP500s, possibly 525EFI

Moving up in power, sold my 496HO's now looking for blue power. Preferrably fresh water and with exhaust but not required. Let me know what you have. 989-307-8350 or [email protected]

If you can help not posting it here to avoid the motor whores buying up everything then relisting them without exhaust for more money (you know who you are)... Thatd be great

If your moving up in power you may want to consider something a lil bit bigger the 500 or 525s
Your not going to notice that much of a difference with that move IMO

Big difference in power from 496 to 525 IMO, keeping in mind most 525's synonym at 540hp.

AJ you boat in fresh water and IMO the only way to justify the price of the 525 over the 500 is the fresh water cooling for the salt water guys. So, I think your money would be better spent on some 540 bulldogs, HP500's or 500EFI's that are built to around 600hp. There's a couple guys selling kits to do this pretty easily.

Realistically 600hp HP500's is what i was aiming for and is probably the most cost effective too. I want to be close to 90mph and with some propping/maybe shorties i should be close. Mike- Budget depends on how soon and exactly which motors they are but for carb id like to be under 20 since im going to have to have some head work and a new cam more than likely. Not in any hurry, done for the season and dont have to have power till spring so the longer i wait, the more money i'll have

Good idea, good to know. Some built 540's would make your boat a real runner! (Save up for gas though!!)

Possibly, PM me details.... Wondering what added maintenance would come with the superchargers. A friend of mine has one with a littlefield 871 that runs great
