    Question Sweet 6.0 small block - merc have any plans!?

    Does anyone one know if Merc has any plans to "marinize" the GM 6.0 ltr. as Crusader has? I would think that in applications where only small blocks are offered, say in the Formula 292 for example, this would make a sweet option where the big-buck Scorpion has gone bye-bye. Or in a boat like a Donzi 22 Classic, it would be a nice combination of power and efficiency.

    Captain's Choice 6.0 MPI
    The Captainís Choice 6.0 MPI, a 6.0 liter GM Vortec engine, makes 375 horsepower and is the latest in automotive technology adapted for marine use.

    The 6.0 MPI features Crusader's totally new HO exhaust system, which has high performance aluminum heads and is freshwater cooled. The distributorless ignition with platinum tip spark plugs stretches maintenance intervals into years. The serpentine belt system with auto-tension makes it incredibly easy to change the impeller.

    The Captain's Choice 6.0 MPI features the industryís first modular raw water pump, with direct-engine mount - no brackets for increased durability. The stainless steel pump is tough and specially engineered for the demands of the marine environment. The 6.0 is super quiet, incredibly smooth, provides neck-snapping performance and cruising efficiency. For all this power, the 6.0 still runs on standard octane fuel while the competitionís high performance engines require premium.
