Quicksilver Gen+ Crate Engines
To avoid the expense of a fully dressed complete engine, Quicksilver provides 275 HP and 325 HP Gen+ Crate engines. These all-new assemblies come with complete fuel, ignition, and intake systems. The Gen+ Crate Engines allow you to have more fun on the water with a power enhancement that other crate engines cannot match. These are based on GM Vortec marine engines, but feature 750 CFM marine 4 barrel carburetor, dual-plane aluminum intake manifold with brass pads and water crossovers, hypereutectic pistons, high-flow oil pump, exclusive high-lift roller camshafts, and are equipped with a mechanical fuel pump. Gen+ Crate engines go through the same rigorous testing procedures as a complete engine, but DO NOT include: flywheel, brackets, exhaust manifolds, risers, starter motor, alternator, pulleys hoses and belts. These items can be transferred from your existing engine or purchased new. They come with a flame arrestor, water separating fuel filter, engine wire harness, and Thunderbolt V ignition with knock control. These marine engines meet US Coast Guard Safety Standards, unlike automotive units.
The Gen+ Crate Engines offer the flexibility to be used for significant power and torque gains when repowering non-MerCruiser inboards and sterndrives from makes such as Volvo, Yamaha, Crusader, PCM, and Indmar.
