doing a GM 5.0 to 5.7 ??
have an OMC Cobra with GM5.0 and considering doing a 5.7 since I have to replace the block on the 5.0 anyways.
Question is if this is a strait up interchangeable swap. If not what doesnt interchange?
It should all be the same. If im not mistakin the block is the same its just smaller displacement
Heads are different. Use 350 heads.
Plan on buying a bigger pitch prop... The final gear ratio you have is more than likely a 1.50:1 and a 5.7 (260HP) came with a 1.41:1...
The ratio in in the upper GC, should have 21 teeth on the drive and 16 teeth on the driven for the 5.7L...
Most everything else will work fine. The heads can be used from the 305 depending on deck height.
