X30 engine

Is the Ilmor 5.7L Engine in the 2012-2014 models big enough?

Any options you find as a must have when looking at the used ones?

Thanks in advance.

Personal choice and a lot depends on how you would use it, but I would not go with anything less than 400 HP. Many have ordered it with the 5.7 and were happy, but for what I want to be able to do with a lot of folks on board, and for resale, I would go with at least one step up.

Just my opinion. No flames

Tons of threads on this.

I’ve got tons of hours behind a 6.0 and our 5.7 X30. I personally have put 5k pounds of weight in our 5.7 X30, and it got on plane for wakeboarding. Would definitely not buy a 5.7 without GEN 2 because of obviously surfing but the auto launch. 6.0 is nice, but if I was to buy used I’d shoot for a 6.2 to really make it worth it.
