X9 or 209 with LQ9 (6.0)????

Just curious of how rare an X-9 or 209 with the 6.0 is. Does anyone have one or know someone that has one equipped with the 6.0
I may consider one this yr or next if I could find one with the 6.0. Of course, I would also consider the X-14 with the 6.0 depending on price.

Did you get down to Nashville last weekend for the boat show? That would have been a good question for the MC guys. Out of curiousity, why are you only considering the 6.0?

Wasn't able to make it. I'm currently working in PA. Just wanting alittle more hp for barefooting. I'm sure the mcx would be fine and the X-9 is not a barefoot boat but I've had the 197 with a 6.0 and would not have anything less in it and with 2 kids I would like alittle more room than the 197.

Gotcha. If you do have issues finding the 6.0, you could always "settle" on the 5.7 and talk to OJ about a better prop. I have the X-30 and the 5.7 pushes it around just fine with the ballast and all. However, if I could afford the engine and the gas, you better believe I would have the 8.1 in it lol

It was kind of too much, everything was vibrating when that block was started. Hitting down the trottle felt like if the prop was not in wather but in concrete, if you know what I mean.

In my point of view the 6.0 is/was the best motor in their lineup...

We've got a 2002 X-9 with the LQ9. It's a great engine, very smooth, very responsive to the throttle. Never had any real problms with it.

I'm with you on the mcx. I had it in a X45 that was lost in the flood in 2010. It was okay with stock prop unless I filled all the factory balladt and filled additional 2000lbs of ballast with 10 people then it would not get on plain but could have been reproped.
I wouldn't think that the mcx would really push the X9 over 43 to 45 even with a different prop. I'm sure we will get some more input on that as well. Just getting a feel as to how hard this boat may be to find. I've got a 190 with the 454 I might just get another X45 and keep the 190 for footin.
