A pretty lousy advertisement for Sirocco Marine, despite the cameraman's lame attempt at spinning it into a positive thing for the Fluid. The captain takes it all in stride and calmly proclaims...

that makes no sense, he’s clearly looking at an older motor, a current Merc 150 might have the same power and almost within his weight requirements but way out of budget.

Clearly they spent a lot of R&D on this motor, and to introduce it in such a sloppy, unprofessional way is a complete fail. It plants a seed of doubt, makes you wonder what else they’re gonna screw...

actually, supercharging does increase torque in low and mid range, unlike turbocharging. I’m a big fan of smaller engines making big power, which is the trend in autos, so I’m real sorry to see the...

I’m still thinkin’ something big’s gonna drop tomorrow, and it ain’t no porky 425. So my guess is...a supercharged 600! Add a few pounds (just a few) for the supercharger and you’ve got a robust...

Sharp looking motor, interested to see the performance numbers. Does this now make 250-300’s mid sized? Hard to believe it’ll run on 89 octane with 12:1 compression. Funny, as a kid the largest...

I’d rather cleanly burn my engine oil than have it wind up in a landfilll, or worse. Actually my local transfer station (aka the town dump) collects motor oil for heating.

Very cool project! The irony between your use of Mig21 fuel tanks and neighbors calling the cops if they see a little smoke coming from a tiny engine, is priceless.

AM vs FM

I like to think of it as Amplitude Modulation versus Frequency Modulation. The big 4 stroke power stroke versus the smaller but more often 2 stroke power stroke. Yes, a 4 Stroke's power stroke is...
