MV8 7.4L

At 522hp (390kW), the 7.4L is the most powerful catalyzed production marine engine available today

The superior design and materials of Ilmor-developed internal components provide unsurpassed performance and parts reliability.

  • Forged steel crankshaft

  • Forged pistons

  • Forged steel connecting rods

The naturally aspirated engine architecture provides more horsepower, better fuel economy, and longer parts durability than comparable supercharged engines.

The 7.4L conforms to EPA, CARB and EU emissions standards, producing nearly 70% lower Carbon Monoxide emissions than other gasoline engines of comparable horsepower – a benefit for wake surfers and boarders riding its massive wakes.

Each engine is hand built to the same quality standards as our IndyCar engines.

87 octane-compatible, offering the thrill of high-performance power without breaking the bank.

Sophisticated variable valve timing for overall enhanced performance – increased lower end torque and high RPM horsepower.
