    I(39)m re-powering my 2859-gctid406611

    I'm re-powering my 2859 with one of these stern drive engines, YANMAR 6LPA or LV8 anyone know if one motor will give better economy over the other? The LPA is a 315HP 6 cylinder the LV8 320 and 8 cylinder. which motor will give me the best overall performance? The price difference is 10K us dollars. I'm interested in extending my range for Scuba diving off California coast. I currently have a Merc 7.4L MCM.

    Speak to Mastry motors in the tampa bay area. They mate Yanmar diesels to merc drives, and sell/install them.
