As a former owner of two 8.2L Detroits, I benefitted hugely by reviewing what Bill on Boatdiesel.com did for us all, with his comments on 8.2L engines. Pay attention to their cooling systems, and you'll have cool engines.
Buy two of these off eBay immediately while you can: TW4103 Turbocharger, Detroit Diesel Marine 8.2L D, 466082-5002S, 8923640 Turbo ($789!!) and look for proper gaskets ($135) at Cullen Diesel in Langley, BC.
