What an elegant way to address the major issue with big marine engines - Valve train issues. Big Valves, big springs mean high maintenaince and catastrophic failures if things don't go right.

One thing that struck me a little strange was only 10 head bolts on a turbocharged engine. Maybe that was all there was room for with all those cam rockers and shafts, but it seems like a low number of head bolts for a boosted engine.
