Thanks, Will.
No its straight across in one section. No drops or steps. The joys of having a long shaft engine!!!!

How long do you plan on keeping this engine!

How many hours/days do you do a year?

I'd say the Opti 135 was the best lump in you list, it has stunning fuel economy oodles of grunt and it's in a block that can produce over twice the amount of power so you have a chance of long term reliability.

I wouldn't go for the opti 115

Here it comes again, I don't stand a chance
