They probably will when GM puts a 2.0 Turbo in the C8 as the "base" engine.
Otherwise, any V8 engine that becomes available in a Camaro was first used in the Corvette.

My 38' has a 1226xHD2 and a Fantom 18 - the combination works very well. The 18" works well inside smaller harbors in heavy fog, plus it is a backup.

Probably not. Inflation is far higher then the current administration and Fed are willing to admit. We are a lot closer to the late 1970's inflation spiral than those in power will ever acknowledge....

Those CAT 3116's are not 450 hp - the highest rating they had were 350 hp. The C7's are electronic versions of the 3126's and only came in 461 hp models so I have no idea what HarborRd is talking...

Without a generator, a microwave might not be that useful. We use the microwave, electric stove and toaster oven a fair bit when we are offshore fishing, but we have a generator.

The hi idle setting on the two 3116's matching at 3050 has no great magic effect in getting the engines to full power at 2,800 rpm. If you get both engines to turn up to 2,825-2,850 at wot, you will...

Most diesel boats idle at 5-6 mph on 1 motor and 6-7 mph on 2 engines, while most outboards idle at 3-3.5 mph, and it seems like most of them never run at the 5 mph speed limit in no wake zones....

Your calculation is based off of rpm, not load and is just plain wrong.
Recreational diesels (E-rating) are designed to run at 80% load, i.e. if the engine makes 350 hp, it can be run at cruise...

Compared to $28k for a single Yamaha F300, $25k for a pair of 330 hp Mercruiser 5.7's, which is less than half the cost, is pretty cheap. If you went with a reman 5.7 you could do it for $10k per...
