    Default Help identifying year of motor

    I don't have the boat nearby so all I have are these pictures. It's in a 89 ultra jet.
    Looking to get the motor rebuilt, due to rod knock.
    You think it would be better to rebuild or swap with a remanufactured?

    Thanks,
    Jonathan

    You have a stock 454 330 hp engine. You have a cast crankshaft,cast pistons, small oval port heads,3/8ths rods , plastic cam gear just a basic 454. What are your future plans with the boat. Do you want to up grade the engine or rebuild it stock?

    Looking to rebuild back to stock and rebuild the jet as well(berkeley je). I'd love to talk about what upgrades we could do without compromising the reliability of the motor. It is our little family boat, not a racer.
