Re: powerstroke engine used in marine applications ?
[ QUOTE ]
It'll bolt up to a Bravo I, II, or III. Probably need different mounts. Mercruiser uses their own closed cooling system and a little different aftercooler. Keep in mind that the marine D7.3L D-Tronic runs a lower compression ratio of 15.5:1 instead of the PSD's 17.5:1, and it runs 300 hp at 3800 RPM. So the pistons, injection timing, PCM control, etc are going to be different. Do-able, but maybe costly.

Gee Gooch, It seems I read somewhere?, a post by some one?,that the only threads you reply too are coolant related? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
I'd tend to agree with Gooch on the cost. To buy all the pieces separate to convert a truck engine, you may not be far from a package from Mercruiser unless you can find a blown/submerged motor,salvage parts,etc.
