Oh and I showed the video of you spraying clear on the flake to my girlfriend, who is now repainting furniture with a spray gun, to show her how to properly use the gun and keep a wetted edge  ;D

I've been following your build - beautiful and an inspiration to keep going!

I don't want to hurt my outdrive and my budget and time (not to mention skill set) for the entire project is probably 1/4 of yours, so a healthy 350 close to, but less than 300 HP is what I am after

I missed who built your motor and where you bought it?

It is a guy out of Texas his Name is Herb and he sells them on Ebay.  I found his name on a couple forums before I ever seen it on Ebay.
I think this has become an addiction.

You can easily get 300 up out of a SB 350
I did with basically a cam. Throw on some vortec heads and intake, and you're over that. I would recommend having it balanced since they get run much harder than in a car.
