This Swedish manufacturer is probably best known in the United States for its truck and bus engines, but it has also been a major supplier to the commercial-marine sector. Now it's making a concerted effort to enter the pleasure marine market with a pair of engines. The DI14 is a 800-hp 14-liter V-8 with twin water-cooled turbochargers and a triple-charge cooling system that employs a freshwater intercooler downstream of each of the turbocharger outlets, plus a third seawater intercooler at the rear of the engine responsible for primary cooling of the charge air. The DI12 is a 12-liter, 675-hp in-line six, which Scania says is unusually compact. It measures 4'5"L x 3'3" H and weighs 2,525 pounds.
Both engines have individual cylinder heads for easy servicing and Saver Ring, a coke-scraping cylinder-liner ring that works with a Keystone top piston ring to reduce oil consumption even under high loads.
