2013 X10 5.7 or 6.0

Hi

New to the forum. I am considering purchasing a new X10 and would like to know whether the 5.7 ilmor will be sufficient or whether I would be better going for the 6.0. We ski and wakeboard and may get into surfing. I am unable to test drive either of the engines at my local dealer so I cannot compare them for myself. I thought that with full stock ballast and people the 6.0 may do the job a bit easier than the 5.7.

If anyone has driven the X10 with the 5.7 and or the 6.0, I would appreciate hearing your experiences.

I got the 6.0 option in mine, just for the fact we surf and we add some extra weight above factory. I figured it would do a little better gas wise because it would not take as much to push a fully loaded boat.

The 5.7 will be more then enough motor for an X10. I have the 5.7 in a 4000lb X30 and load it down. Either motor will benefit from a reprop if you are going to go really heavy on the ballast.

You can't test either of them at your local dealer? That doesn't seem right.

X2

Same setup as above have no problems with 2k (sometimes more) ballast in x30.

I have the 6.0 this year in my 2013 X30 and had the 5.7 in my 2012z. IMHO the 5.7 would be great in an X10. It was more than enough in my 2012 even with a lot of weight. The 5.7 is a good motor.

I agree. The bigger motor might help resale some, but you won't be lacking with the 5.7.

6.2 will have the best gas mileage, nothing wrong with the 5.7, but loving the 6.2 in the X25.

Go big or go home, lol

Thanks for the replies. I am located in Australia and only have one dealer within 600 miles, so it is a little difficult with the test drives. I would like to go with the 6.2 because of the weight savings but do not want to spend the extra coin for that. My previous boat was a Malibu VTX with a monsoon 350 so my concern was going to a bigger and heavier boat in the X10 but with less advertised HP in the Ilmor than the Indmar. Although I have heard that the Monsoon's HP is over rated.
