Default 150 ci ... 720 hp

was just reading where the new F1 motors are about 150 ci (2.4l) v-8 and the first generation ones are making 720 hp on 101 octane fuel..... normally aspirated.... and they only weigh about 200lbs i think..... so 4 of those for every 502....

wow... that would get you across the water...

the only problem is that with only about 250 lbft of torque, you'd want to hit the water at top speed, and don't stop (kinda like the snowmobiles)!

at what... about 19,500 revs this year ? geeze... remember when 500 cc 2 cycle bikes couldn't do that ? imagine putting that technology and materials in a 500 inch v8....

would make 700 hp at idle...which would be about 8000 rpm...

have to have some VERY good transmissions and drives... and would be well w/ in everyone's budget at about 2.5 mil each

oh well back to my iron v-8's


happy new year everybody

Unhappy Re: 150 ci ... 720 hp

Is it a 2 cycle ? If it is it's like having 300ci from the get go. when you compare it against a 4cycle motor. If I could figure out a way to get water from the bottom of the boat through a strainer on the boat bottom and then through a strainer in the boat I'd be real interested in outboards. Out here on the south shore of Long Island , we have a huge seaweed problem,(maybe because of everyone fertilizing their lawns) also more shallow water than deep water in the bay. I think the deepest it gets is about 12 ft. Anyone have any ideas ? Also you won't suck up a plastic bag on a wedge strainer like you will with it wrapped around the lower unit. And the outboard get's its water from the bottom of the lower, the first thing to hit bottom. With the wedge strainer even if i hit bottom, I'm still getting good water, instead of sand and muck. Alot of us have boat slips and canals that are shallow and the officials won't dredge, something to do with Epa, Army corp. of engineers, etc... mostly $$$. So we are forced to drive our boats through crap. BBB
