Default Fiat Fpt Diesel 560 Hp 1000+tq

Look's like a decent motor and is about 1400 lbs . they use them over sea in quite a few race boat's . i think with a muiltiy speed tran's and some surface drive's this mite be the ticket , from what i was told not sure if it's true or not that they make the block's for the 5.9 cummin's ,
these motor's are 6.7 L 560 hp @ 3000 rpm and a touch over 1000 lbs tq @ 2000 rpm .
full throttle 28 gph
2000 rpm cruise 8 gph
here's a link to some spec's

who has any more info

thank's
mike

Your right about the Cummins. Outerlimits built a SV52 with four of them and Twin Disc drives/Arneson.

Mike,

If you are using the boat here in the states stick with Cummins 480hp don't be foolish for a few extra hp - how easy or quickly do you think it will be to get service for them here or warranty?

Boats only break when you want to use them, not before, so the time to get back boating is the number one problem people have.

To repair the iron itself is the quickest part of any repair, it's the getting the tech scheduled to come look at it, ordering of parts and getting him back to intsall them - Cummins has the largest marine diesel dealer network in North America.

Cummins will have their version at the Miami boat show.. Not as much hp though.

The FPT's are good value, basically a stroked 5.9 to 6.7L and they can give you a 600-620 hp map..

Rik do you know if its going to be under the Cummins name or does Mercury have something to do with it?

The bore and stroke are different than a 6,7 L Cummins ,also the rpm is 400 lower than a cummins ,FPT / Fiat has a joint venture with Cummins ,I saw these motors first time in Italy at Fabio Buzzi,a few years ago ,and they had 4 of those in a large V bottem with Trimax drives which looked awesome

Please don't anyone take what I said about FPT as a knock on their product, it is first rate.

My concerns are you take a diesel boat and run it all around, up & down like Bob the Builder does and if you have a problem you could have trouble getting service because of a not so robust dealer network.

that's what i was worried about , but i will be boating up and down the coast from westpalm to miami and the dealer in ft lauderdale does the warranty work .
im not saying that im buying one or the other at this time im just doing research rite now .
i was also told not sure if it's true that fpt build's the motor's for cummin's so i would think if that's the case they should have a pretty stout motor .
it's funny that fpt also has a 5.9L model in there line up of motor's

THANK'S
MIKE
