Hey Folks wanted to Wish everybody a very great Holiday Season and ask an opinion question. I have been searching for a Jet boat and my main Preference is that it has a BBC because that is what i am familiar with and I know performance parts almost grow on trees and are reasonably priced. The other part that has been a GIVEN for me is that my new boat has a Berkely pump on it, ok all Good. Well I have potentially found a boat, the boat is a 19 ft Sanger hull with a Berkely pump but its got a 455 OLDS bored .30 over, its setup with a fairly healthy Roller in it with dual 650 CFM Holleys on a Hi-Rise the present owner is claiming 600 HP Depending on the heads and the specs on the cam that is believable. If all goes as planned I think this setup could serve me pretty well for a year or two. When the time comes that I want to go through the motor and do some of my own mods to it like, a few for instances, Bigger Roller Cam, different intake setup, maybe a single carb setup or how about forced induction? I know all this is 100% out there again almost growing in the trees for a BBC, how does this apply to an OLDS motor? Chevy performance parts equal plentiful and inexpensive. FORD performance parts = harder to find less selection and MORE expensive, same with MOPAR, Where does OLDS fit into this guys? I really dont want to buy myself into a corner with no future options?
Thanks much for your thought on this guys, and all thoughts appreciated!!!
