    The reason indmar switched to the raptor 6.2 is the availability of blocks. When Ford moved nearly all F-150 and raptors over to the ECO Boost and 5.0 it left a huge inventory of 6.2L blocks that could be had for cheap.

    Itís all speculation of course, but even if Godzilla get marinized , it wonít make be disappointed in owning a raptor at all.

    My buddy has an older 24 Supra with the 8.1. That is a beast. Bring on the big motor.

    Looks like the small ecoboost got picked up by Indmar.

    I saw this yesterday too. May be opening the door for the 3.5 in a wake platform maybe.

    Default Will Godzilla replace the raptor?

    https://boatingindustry.com/news/201...gy-in-engines/

    Looks like the 2.3 EB is planned for wake boats......

    350ft lbs and 310hp is impressive out of a 4 banger, but, itís awfully light weight.

    Still prefer a iron block V8 for several reasons but one reason is free ballast.

    I guess the engine bay would be smaller and allow for bigger bags......

    I would hope that indmar has many hours of testing in real world applications prior to this announcement however I would have 2 main concerns and want several years of testing before I would buy one:

    larry's comment above about smaller engine bays- turbos create heat. lots of it. would it really be smaller or taken up with either space for cooling or more radiators to keep them running chilled

    and turbo spool. as the skier yells "hit it", what will that spool look like, especially slalom. twin turbos of differing sizes typically yield less turbo lag so interesting that they chose a single vs something like the bimmer inline6 that isn't so laggey.

    one benefit tho would be a platform that the tuning community has an aftermarket for. it could open up options to move from 350hp to 450hp with some simple add-on's and tuning might not be proprietary anymore.

    Based on indmarís history of locking ECMís I expect zero aftermarket tuning ability.

    The eco-boost 3.5 has very little spool, if any. Max torque at 2000 RPM. I have it in an exclamation itís awesome. Very impressive if you asked me!

    Edit: Sorry I didnít realize the 2.3 was a single.
