TPI Engine complete with headers, New Mercury Bravo 1 HD gimbal and Max Machine works drive.

Engine: fresh 2008 565C.I. BBC with only last years Howard regatta time on it I’m going to say less than 5 hours (the longer this takes to sale the more gentle hours that will be put on the engine). Motor specs; Dart tall deck block, Callies magnum crank, 4.25 stroke, 4.5 bore, Dart CNC pro 1 heads, 5.0 Liter Whipple with MOAC intercooler, CMI E-Top headers. New Mercury Bravo 1 HD gimbal and a 2008 Max Machine Worx full billet drive that has 1.35 gear, the prop is a Mercury 30 lab.

This engine will be pulled from the Howard and will be replaced by a Mercury 525 with a XR drive. I can not do this swap until the TPI motor and parts as listed above are sold. The current TPI engine will be run but not hard. I don't want, need or have any desire to have this much HP in my boat so....

I am looking for the best offer at over $43K for the setup listed above. I of course will retain the right to cancel this offer at anytime for any reason prior to accepting your offer :)

This setup minus the Mercury gimbal was up for sale last year at $65K so I think I have this priced right.

Lets get this done so I can get that 525 put in :) PM me with any details and so forth that you may need.

Did Newmexico bullet or Garys wife have the dyno sheets on this motor? I have a buddy looking to upgrade. He is looking for over a 1000hp.
Thanks PC20

No dyno was ever done on the motor

do you already have the 525

No


Here is the deal after thinking this out with lots of input from a lot of people:

OK...Going to go run it tomorrow and go from there. If I do decide to sale this I will post an update here. Lots of excellant advice that I have been getting and it has definitly made me think about what I was doing. I may decide to do this but for now I am holding tight so this TPI engine is not currently for sale UNLESS an insane can't say no offer is made to me :)
