Default Torque v-12's Whats going on?

Just curious to know if the motors are still made, if they were any good, problems with them, pricing. I know Callan has been running them but can the public buy them?

he bought the rights to them and him and sterling have been working them out and trying to make them more affordable. call either sterling or callan, i am sure you can get them, but i would guess they are still some serious cash.....

I don't think I ever heard anything good about them. A friend of mine put them in a New 50 foot Jaguar, Wild Thing a few years ago and had nothing but problems. He had them pulled out after spending HUGE bucks trying to get them to perform. I know Aqua Toy store had a Hustler and believe they had their share of problems also. In my opinion, if your going to spend that kind of $$$ on big power, call Rod at Race Crafters.

I think Sterling Performance Engines is building these motore now. I think that the Callan Marine boat ran them this year.

Check with Callan Marine, they own the rights to the Torque motors. They are working with Sterling to get the engines up and running.

If you have seen them they are also monsters in size. I like the hp and tq numbers from a n/a motor but I'm not sure what they would fit into that you could still do any maintance on.

The new 43 Schiada at the LA Boat Show had a pair of
Falconer V12's in it. These are aviation V12's used in things
like the P51's used in the air races.
