In my 98 outback I have a PCM 350efi and I wiped a rod bearing this past weekend it just so happens that I have a brand new 383 Chevy crate motor in the garage and I was thinking about putting it in the boat. I know I have to reverse the rotation but I was just wondering if anyone on here had ever done anything like this, if its a good idea anything special I need to look for. I was thinking about it just because of the more torque I could get out of the boat especially when loaded down it should be able to come out of the hole much better. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks
