FULL THROTTLE THRILLS
Ilmor is MasterCraft’s exclusive partner for recreational marine engines. A Penske Company, Ilmor has more than 30 years experience in automotive racing. Enjoy more time and more fun on the water with the industry’s most responsive, robust and reliable engines.
REAL WORLD RELIABILITY
Ilmor knows how to engineer simplicity and reliability. From fewer hoses and clamps to an engine power distribution module (e-PDM), eliminating the need for physical fuses and allowing resets right from the dash, you’ll experience unrivalled reliability. A crank-mounted raw water pump on the 6.0L, 5.3L and 6.2L engines eliminates common failure points, allowing longer time (two seasons/125 hours) between routine impeller servicing.
LEVELED UP WITH MORE LITRES
More litres mean more power, and you’ll feel the difference in our 380 horsepower 6.0L MPI engine, standard on the NXT, XT and ProStar models. X models, the XStar and XStar S feature a powerful 430 horsepower 6.2L GDI, and can be upgraded to a massive 7.4L MPI making 522 horsepower. The torque and gearing ratios are all designed to give a power curve with tractor-like towing muscle in a boat filled with ballast, but also plenty of top–end speed. For those seeking salt water, the super tech 5.3L GDI has an efficient close-cooled aluminium block, running 365 horsepower at higher RPMs giving it outstanding top-end performance.
MEAN AND CLEAN
And consistent with our philosophy of Making Boating Better, Ilmor engines meet the strictest environmental requirements of not just the EPA, but also CARB ultra clean ratings, single/twin BSO certification, and EU-RCD standards. The Ilmor GDI class engine is one of the top 5-star emissions rated gasoline marine engines in the world.
Ilmor engines have an unprecedented 7-year, 1,000-hour, factory-backed warranty—the most comprehensive in the towboat industry. This is the gold standard.
