WOW that is sweet on so many levels!

Nice work and as an owner of an oversized heavy boat I am very interested in how this thing does with the diesels.....I am not looking to go 60mph in my 15000 lb beast but it would be great to have the mileage, longevity, and torque to spin the arnesons better and increase my range so I can go to the abacos and back on a tank of good old USA diesel.

Keep us posted

Shueman,

Hey Jon,
The motors themselves really dictated where the exhaust was going to exit...see the attached pix...

I may be wrong, but I think the 480 cummins is closer in size to he yanmar 6CX.

Any word yet on performance numbers?
