    Oh Ya!! We've got 3 of them sitting in crates at work. They are the QC-4 motors. 4 cam OHV heads, with the twin turbo units. They only produce 1250 on 90 Octaine, but turn the wick up to 94 Oct. you'll get 1350Hp, and if your rich enough to fill the tanks with C14 (114 Octaine Race Gas) then you can put a key into a switch, and it changes the fuel mapping to output 1550 Hp(1650 Race motors) at the props!! Yes, at the props! All this fun and excitement for not so low prices of ... Wait for it.....
    $230,000. Each. Yep, some rich guy is coming in Wednesday of next week to have these installed in his personal poker run boat that Cigarette just built, a 50 ft Maurader. So, for a mere 1/2 Million dollars with the correct rigging, you too can feel the wind through your hair, no matter how thin it may be!!!

    Sure, you could try! Not too sure how much transom will be left after you floor it??? I think you'll have to install the new M8 race drive too, that thing is massive too. But it does come with its own transmission though.

    Lincoln, Ford, Mercury products get a bad rap because they cost a little more, but obviously worth the investment.
