In last year’s "Engine Preview," we alerted you to two new engines coming from MAN, a 1,500-hp V-12, which it is rumored will appear at next month’s Miami International Boat Show, and a "400-hp in-line six." That engine did indeed appear at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, although it turned out to be a 450-hp in-line six. Based on a heretofore-unseen 6.87-liter block, it’s rated at 2600 rpm and weighs 1,477 pounds without marine gear, giving it a horsepower-to-weight ratio of 3.28:1. Because the heat exchanger and gearbox are integrated with the expansion tank in one housing, it’s compact: 34"Wx33"Hx52"L. MAN says it burns 23.7 gph at rated rpm and develops peak torque between 1700 and 1800 rpm. (954) 946-9092. Fax: (954) 946-9098. www.man-mec.com.
