X30 5.7ltr okay?

I am considering ordering a 2015 X30 and am wondering if the 5.7ltr engine will be sufficient. We won't load it up a lot - recreational wake and surf with family.

Cylinders V-8

Compression Ratio 9.4 : 1
Fuel System Multi-port fuel injection

Yes., the 5.7 will be fine,

If you are at higher Alt, above 3500 , full time, you may want to consider a 6.0....

We had a 13 X-30 with the 5.7L and traded it earlier this summer for a 14 X-30 with the 6.2L. The 5.7L was fine for us with stock ballast + 750s in each of the rear compartments. That being said, I had to drag quite a bit to get up on a slalom (I'm about 185lb), and even my wife (120lb) noticed the difference between our old boat (X-2 with 5.7 MCX). The 6.2 is probably overkill, but I can confirm it runs quieter (lower rpm at same speed) and burns less gas than my 5.7L. From a cost/benefit standpoint, I'll bet the 6.0L hits the sweetspot. Just my opinion.

I had a 2012 with the 5.7 and now have a 2013 with the 6.0. Both motors are great. I do find the 6.0 has more power/lower RPM when fully loaded, but overall I found that having the right prop made the biggest difference. If top speed isn't important to you, get the Acme 15x12 prop (2305). This makes a bigger difference than the larger motor, IMO.

The surf and convenience package includes the V3 PROWAKE PROP. Is this prop similar to the Acme 2305?

I had the stock "High Alt" prop on my 2013 and the Acme 2305 blew it out of the water. Sorry, I can't comment on the V3 Prowake Prop, I can't find anywhere that it lists the specs of this prop.

+1 for Acme 2305 on X30 with 5.7. 2305 has a massive performance gain to stock prop. My boat has 750ís in the back plus 300 lbs. of led dispersed in various spots. Extremely happy with performance and wake shape. Lost maybe 1 or2 mph on top-end but again top-end is not my focus.
