    Default Turbos in Closed engine compartment can be done

    This is a 572″ CID BBC twin turbo Nordic. It has Accel DFI EFI system and twin GT47s on it. The boat is a proven setup and has run the lakes around the Seattle area. These are the correct sized turbos for what the engine needs. Not the e-bay crap or old outdated banks or water cooled junk.

    It has been done and I don't really see the problem in doing so. I know a guy that works for the owner of the boat and he says it hauls ass.

    Brian,

    That is a sweet proven set up for sure!! What would a complete drop in engine/turbo/efi/tuned package like that go for??

    Thanks

    Im 99 percent sure that the owner of that boat put that motor in a 27 thor cat and had run 140mph on pump gas @ 12 lbs of boost.

    The thread was on offshoreonly.com

    That is a little open ended. I don't know how built his engine is but I am sure it is not a stocker. This wasn't a budget build for sure. The guys who built it for him are not cheap either.

    Lets say just shooting from the hip
    You could build a 540 for around $15,000 to $20,000 maybe less now.
    Turbos, EFI, headers, clamps, intercooler, waste gates ect $10,000 parts
    Then you would have labor for the fab and polishing. Not sure but looking at it that project looks like a 2-3 week job.

    It could be done cheaper with cheaper parts and engine, it all depends on how much boost and power like always.

    That exhaust looks EXTREMELY expensive to me.

    He started with CMI split top headers. They are 5k just for whats bolted to the heads. Then all of that jacketed stainless was huge $$ to build.

    I got the race compressor cover and that added to the price.
    Supposed to add 60 hp or so and has hose clamp mounts rather than v band.
    I can't run anything without a polished compressor either.
