Awesome.
I always thought the 572 was a beast too.

It'd be interesting in a boat, swap it in place of a Volvo Penta and should bolt up as it's a BBC. Now the question is if the outdrive or props would be able to keep up/ survive.
Well Mercury racing makes turn key 1850hp engines so...

I'm thinking of my cousins boat, It's a 30ft Regal (basically the biggest boat you can tow without a wide load), and the outdrive has already died once this summer, and thought it took the engine as it immediately died and would not turn over. Although it looks like the failure was due to a piece of wood or debris floating below the surface got in between the counter rotating screws most likely caused it, and not the engine overpowering it.
