Way to much money, wrong application.  The truck versions will put out 7-800hp.  You'd need a radiator the size of the front of the bus to cool over 1,000hp.  Then there are the electronics?  Good Luck, TomC

Not a bad price Dave I know my brother paid a lot more than that for his C-18's in his boats (4 in each)

good luck
