  1. You have the torque and HP numbers swapped but it doesn’t really matter as long as both are over 1100! It’s worth noting that if we didn’t have to deal with the restrictions of marine use (the engine has to put the boat on plane with a one speed transmission) we could substitute bigger heads, cam and intakes to make 1500 HP with this engine. We have had many inquiries from automotive applications where multi-speed transmissions would allow us to do this.
