Now this would sure make your hull fly ... and allegedly she runs on 87 octane to boot :) ! Looks like they mean business with their "Ain't no replacement for displacement" ad campaign, as she has 246 cubic inches (4.0 Liter) of displacement to create the power.

By comparison:
-Yamaha 300hp HPDI OB has 204 cubic-inch (3.35 liter) displacement and weighs 543 pounds. [This model has been obsoleted and never really ran too well, from what I’ve read]
-Mercury Verado 275hp OB is a supercharged 159 cubic-inch (2.6 liter) displacement OB weighing in @ 630 pounds, w/ steering system ... which requires premium fuel :shock: to use all of it's ponies
-Evinrude 250hp E-Tec OB (largest currently available), has 200 cubic-inch (3.35 liter) displacement and weighs 530 pounds

I think this is where my Dad would say ... If you have to ask ... you can't afford it!" ;)
