MerCruiser's 454 MAG MPI cranks out a potent 385 prop shaft horsepower.  Technicians enhance the performance of the stock 454 GM block by using high flow cylinder heads with enlarged intake ports that improve air flow throughout the engine.  Hardened exhaust valve seat inserts are more tolerant of low lead fuels, improving reliability and engine life.  For maximum reliability and strength in high demand situations, we use a forged steel crankshaft, connecting rods, and forged alloy pistons.  A technologically advanced roller cam design improves low-end torque, offers higher levels of performance, and aids fuel economy.  This, in addition to MerCruiser's exclusive Cross-Ram fuel injection system, results in added torque, improved acceleration, and increase top-end speed. 

An advanced roller cam design provides a lower friction coefficient, added torque, improved fuel economy, and greater horsepower for improved acceleration and top speed.  The new MEFI 3 ECM features advanced electronics for more precise fuel and spark control along with better top-end throttle response.  Powerful 65-amp/917 watt alternator easily compensates for extra power required by EFI systems and fully charges batteries for dependable starting and powering of additional electrical accessories.  EDP coated cast iron exhaust elbows for excellent corrosion resistance.  Steel cone clutch provides smooth, quiet shifting operation.  Lab finished Mercury Racing Mirage-Plus and Bravo 1 propellers are available.

Picks:  EXCELLENT condition inside and out.  Paint and hull are pretty much blemish free, interior vinyl is also very nice

with no rips or tears, the only 2 things that don't work on the boat right now are the fresh water pump and the motor for the

passenger side power footrest.  Everything else functions perfectly.  Runs great and turns heads everywhere.  Looks like

a much newer boat but with the build quality of the older Formulas.  A lot of boat for not much money.  Always well serviced

and garage kept, runs very well and very solid in rough water.  Photos will show condition,
nothing else to reasonably fault.

Photos show the condition so please request and review them.
