    Good Afternoon,

    I have a 2001 270 sundancer with a single mercrusier 454 with bravo III drive and 3 blade duo props. Recently i had a mechanic work on the boat to fix a coil issue that was preventing me from getting on plane due to a miss. Unfortunately when he brought the boat back after he "fixed it" he blew the engine. Now i need to either rebuild the engine or repower it. I like the idea of the repower to get more HP and Torque but not sure what is a realistic replacement option. I have plenty of room in my engine bay so that wont be an issue. what would you recommend? 8.1? 8.2? 502? ......

    try Michigan Motors.....they seem to have a good reputation on reman engines - you want a long block - transfer intake/exhaust/accessories over - look at 454 or 496.....motor should be 4k or so and installation 2-3k....

    I have seen videos that Michigan Motors put out and i was going to look at them. They are actually the reason i was thinking about that 8.1 because they posted a great video of it and said it is a nice repower for the 454
