If you're looking at putting this in a -10, it will weigh at least 100 pounds more than a 540 with cooling system and gearbox.

Reliable gearboxes with provisions for hydraulic C/S props are expensive (much more than the crate engine itself).

If you're not an engineer or gearhead, I wouldn't recommend you start down this path.

Most folks now are using LS3 or LS7 derivatives.
