Question 400hp Verado & 375 HP Optimax

Found this quote on Scream and Fly in reference to the new Mercury Verado and OPtimax,

Has anyone else heard this.


"Its going to be a 4L, inline 8, dual turbo, 400 HP Verado.

AND a 3.8L, 375 HP, 4 star, XS Optimax."

Those huge engines seem like overkill on any transom over a long period of time. I also agree...we'll have to wait and see!

Didn't Johnson come out with V8 outboards that were a flop awhile back?
