Im just wondering if anyone here or there.. Has done a 4 cylinder Turbo install into a Jet Boat ?
Because i know of some engines capable of 400-600 HP that are small CI 4 cylinder engines, Nissan has a SR20 Engine capable of 400 on realatily stock bottom end with a T28 turbo running around 16-20 lbs of boost.
There is also Honda engines out there producing 600+ on a 2.2 liter engine running 18-26 lbs of boost.
Oh yeah and how much of a factor is torque in a Jet Boat ?
on average 4 cylinders make about 15-20% less torque than HP.. IE 500HP engine makes around 380-410ish torque..
I know there is no replacement for displacement..
But im just wondering about the Wieght savings ? If the savings would benifit that much.. Or is there a certain level of wieght needed in the rear ?
Im just looking at options, right now im thinking 5.3 LS engine..
But then i was thinking about this.. Im still pretty new to the boat world..
But let me know what you think..
and thanks guys
