Ordered the starter, fuel rail, crank pulley bolts, alternator and belt today... now I need the fuel system and all the fuel & water plumbing. That bill is scary already and I haven't even ordered it yet.

Bring $50K and take it away... I just ordered another $700 in parts today... my total bill to date is $56k

If I had 50 to blow, I think I would. Love how that thing is turning out.

Well, FACK Eddie Marine... super disappointed, had to send the starter back and am sill on the hunt for a new one. Did get the motor off the stand and get a little more assembly done though. after struggling with incorrect/too short of hardware she should be ready to set in this weekend. Have a proper scoop tray mount on order as well as the plug for the front for when it's stored.

Why does it look like there are lines running off the bottom of the headers?  For cooling?  Mind you I know nothing about boats.

Yes, those are water inlet lines. The headers are sleeved and water runs between the 2 tubes to keep them cool. After running full out you can put your hand on the header and it will only be warm to the touch.

There was some less than par work done when the new rub rail was installed, needless to say I replaced all the bad work.

That’s awesome, do they corrode through after a few years or does it drain out completely when the engine stops?

They're stainless and the headers are double tube stainless so they shouldn't corrode. The cast manifold and standard jacketed headers do occasionally get pin holes in the outer tubes or outer sleeve. I spent the extra coin to find ones that shouldn't
