I am starting my 351 rebuild for the 20ft Xtra plus. Not the diesel as it turns out.
I am upgrading to aluminum Edelbrock performer intake manifold, leaving the Holley Carbs, and upgrading the Manifolds from logs to stainless. Hi Tek marine out of Australia, shipped to my door. They are maybe 10-15 pounds a piece and are supposed to have a 50hp increase over the logs just by bolting them on. I am going to buy a short block and have it shipped up instead of tanking and rebuilding my own here.
I need a new oil pan. Anybody have some experience with this? Marine pans are different than automotive and they are not making 351 marine specific pans anymore.
So, what do you think??
