These are 6.2 - 430 HP each

would be a nice package to repower a 292 Fastech !


The 570`s are not available yet

Would love to swap out my Sunsation Dominator's Mercruiser 6.2s for those! What's the cost on this swap?

I would look down this path for my 292, when or if that time comes. Would definitely be an improvement over the 350s I have now.

Great motors but at 20K each the repower might exceed the boat's value in some cases......Even getting the motors for 25% off list it still might exceed boat's value!
