Merc does offer a diesel with the bravo. I believe that is made by Cummins.

Hi Cord, it's been a while. I still would like a ride in that Firehawk some day.
Maybe I'll see you at the races. I'll be in the dry pits again.

The Bravo will not handle what I'm planning on throwing at it.
When I dive into this it will have to be a surface drive or a v-drive, once I hear how that worked out.
I'm worried about the weight, so to offset that the diesel would be in the 500HP range, but you can figure on almost triple that on torque rating.
I wonder how foamy the diesel fuel gets while sloshing around on a choppy lake.

This should be different

Chad-we will be down there. I managed to snag a spot as a patrol boat, so look for us on the water! If you see us, flag us down and you'll get your ride.

Weight is a big issue with these engines. My 5.9 Cummins weighs 1,000lbs undressed. A big one like you are talking about will be close to 2,000lbs. If you have the coin, I did come across a freshly rebuilt V-16 the other day. Maybe it was a V-12, I don't recall. You should be in the 1,000-1,500 hp range with that engine. $14,000 complete. That would be really cool in a heavy V like a Apache or somthing as a single. I would think that a ASD-8 would survive with that power.

Your 5.9 can be bumped to 450HP VERY easily, it's the tranny that is weak on those Dodge trucks.
Call Huckstorf and chat with them about options on it: 414-421-7222 talk to John, they are very, very nice people to deal with. Then you can stop next store and say hi to ME

hi.
I have marine diesel in my boat. a hammerhead 300hp and bravo one drive. have run the engine 200 hrs since i bougth it last summer.

diesel is cheap and reliable.

Here is some pics of a nortech 50 cat with 4 yanmar 420`s tuned up to 470 hp. It was raining the day we where out in her, so the pics is not the best quality.

You gotta be kidding me! I had my truck down there last week for a idle problem! It reoccured so I had to go back. They describe me as "the white truck with the radical pump"!

The CTD made 370hp from the factory in a marine app. There is no reason why it can't make more than that in a street app. Hucks estimates my crank power at around 450hp. I know that there is at least another 75hp in it with out getting too expensive.

Wow years back we had the work-up on a little 10 Meter Diesel Cat open fish the point of it; Was the 6.6 MPG @ 58 MPH Cruse and 70+ top in those days the Arabs were begging to sell Oil at $11.00 a Barrel so it got shelved..
