Shop it around . As long as you only want to rebuild all your stock stuff , I should be relativley cheap as long as who ever is doin it realizes that it is goin in a boat and not a car and builds it accordingly . I would try http://www.highflowdynamics.com/ (http://www.highflowdynamics.com/)
They are ford masters.

you type worse than i do. had few? don't worry. i condone that. party on. my boat has a 460 ford. shop around for the best price. a simple ring and bearing job could be cheap. just make sure the shop knows it is a marine application. more like like a nascar motor than a drag motot. much more W.O.T than a drag motor.

Dre , I have found that fords are cheap to build . If you can get it looked at to make sure it is good and worth the money and running , it might be worth . I get the feeling that it will only be a band-aid though . For your stock application , it will be cheap to have yours rebuilt and the best part about it is that it will be BRAND NEW !
