has anoyone seen this company? they claim a whopping 550hp out of their 3.5l block and 650 out of their 4.0l block.
just thought this related to the game a little bit, happy boating
Hmm thats interesting!
I have not heard of them before.
Not saying they are correct on their numbers
but you have to consider that Seven marine squeezes similar numbers out of their outboards.
Thanks for sharing
If I'm not boating, i must be asleep!
seven marine also squeezes these numbers out of a hugee engine, resulting in a not so good hp/weight ratio. these engines are much similar to the 2.5 drag that mercury had that spun to a high rpm. meaning that not only is it a high horsepower application but has a low weight so that you dont need a 42' 500k+ center console to mount it onto
Ah i got you. Doesn't Seven claim to have a better power to weight then completion? Or is it lower gph or mpg at cruise?
seven marine boasts that they can be more fuel effiecent, but this is mostly due to the fact that they have to only use two engines were most of the other major outboard companies (yamaha, mercury, evinrude, suzuki) have to use three to compete on a performance level.
