How often do you use the boat? If it's not a lot it'll take an intake a while to corrode, you can have it hard anodized or at least powder coated that will reduce the corrosion. A manifold and carb would really help. The exhaust is another place for improvement, but your right, $$$$$$$$. My boat has Bassett headers so I'm not limited there. Even without that stuff though your combo should put 325HP without much effort. What drive do you have, is it up to the task? That 260 HP stock rating is at what RPM, you may have to re-prop also.
