New Ratings For QSM11 and QSC8.3

Monday, October 11, 2004
Cummins MerCruiser Diesel has announced new commercial engine application ratings for the Quantum Series QSM11 at 300 hp (220kW), 355 hp (261kW), 405 hp (298kW) and 455 hp (336kW) respectively. Additionally, commercial engine application ratings of 490 hp (361kW) for the QSC8.3 diesel engine were released.

Utilizing the proven fuel-efficient CELECT and common rail fuel systems that delivers virtually smoke-free, quiet, yet powerful operation, these full-authority electronic system engines are EPA Tier 2 and IMO emissions compliant.

Available with the highly desirable keel cooling option, Cummins MerCruiser Diesel engineers have configured the engines with a wet exhaust system and created new smaller-frame waste gated turbochargers to provide more air into each of the cylinders. Quantum Series engines are SmartCraft enabled, offering captains with instant, one-touch digital access to a plethora of networked information on the performance of their vessels.

The Quantum Series of diesel engines offer significant improvements in operational costs, particularly when compared with engines of just a decade ago. Aside from better fuel efficiency, durability and reliability are measurably improved. Fortified turbines, improved piston rings and stronger gear trains that offer better performance are some of the brilliant Cummins MerCruiser Diesel enhancements that contribute to significantly enhancing the life of each engine, while greatly reducing maintenance intervals and associated service costs.
