The Crusader is PCM vs the MCX being Indmar. I think the 5.7 Crusader was listed as 330 HP. Mastercraft only used the Crusaders for a couple of years before switching to the closed cooled Indmar engines. I end up buying my impeller's from the Natique dealership. The Crusader has a relocation kit on the oil filter that makes it easy to get to. Plenty of room behind motor to pull the impeller-which I've read isn't always the case. The salt water series also comes with a raw water strainer which is a nice bonus too.
