As some of you may have read in the October, 2009 Race Pages, my 598 project is moving along. My current powerplant must be sold either as a running engine, or in pieces, to help defray some of the cost of the new engine.
This engine was freshened up 2 years ago and still runs VERY well(used only 5-10 days per year). Oil pressure is 80+ on start up and 35-40 at 1200 rpm idle(75 at 2000 rpm running when hot). Here is a parts list used in this build.

Odds and Ends I've forgotten to list.
As I say, It's in the boat currently and I can start it.
Ultimately, I have to pull it to make room for the new one.
This engine puts out 840 hp @6800 rpm and 758 Ft/lbs torque @ 5400 rpm on a VERY CONSERVATIVE DTS Dyno, and is very reliable at that power level(dyno sheets supplied to new owner). Requires Valve adjustment once in the summer and 1 Oil change, and that's IT(new plugs optional).
It will make an excellent boat engine, or a reliable Hi compression engine for your street/bracket car project.
There is alot of $$$ tied up here. If you would like pictures, SERIOUS buyers please email me at [email protected]
and I'll send some to you.
I will entertain offers over $9,000.00 for everything listed. I prefer NOT to part this engine out, but if you want something specific, I will consider it.
Location of this engine is Anza, Ca, half way between Los Angeles and San Diego. Shipping will either be local p/u, or Forward Air to the closest Air[port to the buyer.
