I have often wanted a Pontiac powered Jet boat as well. I have a good friend with a Taylor SS 1973 with an Olds 455. Are the parts you have basically all that's needed to convert to Pontiac power? Or is there allot more stuff required? Olds power is OK, Pontiac Power is what it NEEDS!

I remember seeing a jet boat powered by some type of really rare Pontiac engine in a magazine many years ago. I want to say it was something odd, like a SD455 or one of the Mickey Thompson engines. Does anybody remember what it was, and what magazine the article was in?
