    Default New boat with GMC Toro Flow 6 Cylinder twin turbo engine - where to get parts?

    Purchased a home made boat that had a Daytona Marine Marinized GMC Diesel Toro FLow 478DH (6 cylinder) that had only been run for trials and at one boat race. The engine is still sitting on the stand. Has twin turbos. The boat is home made fishing boat 26' but extremely heavy, cuddy cabin. Is the engine too much for the boat?

    Last owner said cigarette boat won the race and then they took the engine out & sold it.
    Can you still get parts for these engines? Very cool looking engine in great shape.

    Daytona marine did the conversion. Got some old manuals with it. Ended up selling the motor. Now looking for a smaller diesel.
