    When will Moomba be putting the Ford engines in their boats? Is it possible that Moomba will switch to PCM?

    The SA (skiers choice) was the display boat. Seems most are saying gm is getting phased out of Indmar.

    I'm not positive, but isnt PCM a marinizer like Indmar?

    pcm is a marinizer just like indmar and are offering the same engine lineups as indmar is currently. difference is in the software tweaks and I think some of that is on purpose to get a slightly different number to call it a 343 instead of a 340. my pcm 343 uses the same part numbers from autozone that my indmar ext340 used. both are using the same 550hp blown motor as the top offering.

    I get the buzz from indmar as it's a marketing big deal for them, but for the end-user, I can't imagine anyone cares what engine powers their boat as long as it does so efficently and reliably. they'll probably spin this to show some added hp/tq numbers using the ford motor but any tuner could get an added 20hp out of the chevy motor if they wanted.

    what's funny is that you will now see people that will never buy an indmar-powered boat due to having a ford block in it now.

    I understand your view Sandm, my issue with the Ford block is its not as proven as the Chevy small blocks. Everyone knows the 350 small block is bullet proof. My main concern is how much are parts going to cost when you go to a Ford block vs Chevy.

    I could care less about HP I'd rather them rank an engine with Torque for Wake Boats.

    agreed mike, but iirc, 15 years ago all these boats had the ford gt40 or 351 marine engine in them. somehow we all shifted to the gm block. betting as that took place there were lots of guys sitting around in boat showrooms bitching about losing ford blocks and how gm isn't proven in the towboat industry(imagine the message boards back then if they had been around).

    at the end of the day, I would bet that indmar/ford have struck up a marriage that is financially positive for both companies and that's the reason for the switch. compare engine prices 5 years from now and bet the incentives for switching to ford are all gone and prices are back where they were or higher. to your point, ford engines have always been a tad higher both in initial cost and parts. guessing that's due to the volume of chevy engines produced and the aftermarket industry embracing that platform.

    So...if they're going with Ford, why isn't the revolutionary announcement that they will be implementing a marinized version of the EcoBoost 3.5L V6 with twin turbo? Now, I'd consider that revolutionary; the EcoBoost has almost as much torque as the 6.2...not as much horsepower though, but much better fuel economy.
