Hey guys, new to donzis, pretty new to i/o and small blocks.
Anyhow I picked up a 1993 18 classic that I plan on restoring, it was powered with the 351 king cobra combo, motor and drive are coming out this week. I just bought a 5.7 thunderbolt ignition plus a bravo 1 complete, connected setup from a 2000 bayliner with a supposed 10 hours on a replacement block from jasper engines.
My questions are, did the 2000 blocks run vortec heads? is the 2000 bravo one drive a gen I or II?
I decided on this set up after reading on here the bravo is an easy conversion as it only requires a two holes to be drilled and the alpha requires the transom to be plugged and redrilled.
I hope I am on the right track, I cant wait to bring this boat back to her former glory.

Here is the ad for the motor and drive, it will be here by weds!
