the LQ9 is closed cooling, right?

Is that the only engine MC offers that is. Someone on a different forum said that the MCX in the 06 X-30 was closed cooling, just wanted to check. TIA - CAsey

Yes the LQ9 is closed cooling. It is great this time of year for two reasons.
1. No worry of cracking the block, super easy to winterize, just drain manifold and heat transfer cooler
2. My heater works awesome even at idle, even pushes heat for a few min. after engine off.
After owning a closed closing system engine I would rather not go back in my next boat! :D

I'm still convinced this is the best system for boats.

The LQ9 definitely only comes closed cooling system. I believe from the catalog that the closed cooling if offered as an option on all the other engines.

Where would one find an after market closed-loop cooling system and is it an easy, moderate, hard conversion? I did a Google search and I can't find much...

Danimal, do a search for 'boat heat exchanger 351' (or whatever your engine displacement) you'll get some good results. Or 'boat fresh water cooling kit.'

I looked back and closed water cooling was an option for $1446 in 2001. Maristar 230 VRS, but I have never heard of any Maristar with it.

No, the MCX is doing just fine;) There was a guy on www.wakesiderides.com talking about getting an 06 X-30 with the MCX and he said that he liked that the MCX had closed cooling, I thought it was standard on the LQ9, but was not sure about the other engines.

no hot shower with the lq9 , dont know if thats specifically to all closed cooling engines, but thats one draw back if you like the hot shower. i loved it on my old boat. now i can have it again.
