    Daytona Marine Twin Turbo engine found!

    Well it's official. The Daytona Marine twin turbo engine for my Bench Seat Hornet has been found. We need to do a bit more digging but we believe this IS the engine that was removed from my boat! How cool is that?! And the best part is that this is 100% completely untouched and original. Doesn't get much better then that.👍

    The engine will be here in the next week or so. I will take more detailed pictures and get more info on the make of everything. This rebuild will not be cheap.
