Outdated because of emissions. The 8.1 is the best engine that has ever been available in a larger mc. The only reason every big mc didn't come with one is because of the additional cost. When an engine that cost less money could "do the job" they would justify the choice.

I'm yet to see the best engine for a boat not be the most expensive option.
Prior boats - (3) X14's, (3) Prostars, and a Tristar.
