Pretty sure this is the one we will be installing (ZF-63-IV-1.294 ratio in position A). However I am trying to get a call back from Mastercraft to verify some of the details of the 4.2 tdi they are running in the X55.

Ist the 4.2TDI something they're selling officially or just a test project?

It was an option, but tdi optioned boats are pretty rare. I think there was a ridiculous upcharge ($15k maybe?). I'm not sure if it is still available.

Talked to Bill Gatos at Mastercraft today. Yes the 4.2 TDI is available (europe) I imagine the TDI up charge is in the 30-40k range.
Got some specs on the V-drive and RPM with prop combo they are using. The 4.2 tdi is turning 5200 rpm with a 1.5 to 1 V-drive and a 14.75 x17.5 prop. The Dmax will run about 3300 RPM and use a 1.294 to 1 V drive and prop to be determined.

Bell housing bolted up to a core short block. No oil pan on at this point.






Dropping in for a test fit.




V drive connected and motor mocked up on blocks. Motor mounts will be modified and oil pan will need some adjustments.

We will have some help from PPE or another custom harness builder when we get there. The New ZF V-Drive has arrived with a 1.29 ratio.
