Awesome job getting that boat to close to Prius highway mileage.

The only thing I think you could have done better would have been leaving the rear alone and finding a trans with a wider range of ratios. The vette/camaro 6 speeds likely don't have high enough gears. GM does have a truck 6 speed. I would think this has a stump puller first and a really high OD. I have a friend who has one behind a lightly modded duramax. Holy crap is that thing quick. I suspect that it would bolt up. Of course, you'll have to pay more to find one, but, it would have saved you the rear end work.
