    If I would tell my wife I needed a 52000 dollar engine she would blow a headgasket....

      I think that most everyone's wife would blow a gasket or two.


      Anyway, that is one sweet package. 😊
      And, it is an AQ series drive with main suspension fork and pivot tube geometry! 👍

      Check out the steering system!
      It incorporates hydraulic cylinders that attach directly from the transom shield to the stern drive.

        I don’t have a wife! Does that mean I’ll be buying it?

          Based off of your response in post #3 I’m surprised you haven’t already bought it!

            Well Mike, I'd need two of them.
            Plus, I just bought a new Dodge 2500, so my savings account has undergone a hit.

            It would certainly make a nice package for someone!!!!!!

          Very interesting manifold cooling setup. Seems to be individual exhaust tubes-header style (Equal length one would assume). Also there seems to be an integrated oil cooler setup on the back.

          This is the most high performance setup I've seen from Volvo, if indeed it is stock.

          Pretty cool.

            Chay, that is a factory package, and I might add that it is a very well designed package.

            And as I mentioned earlier, the best part is that it's among the AQ series family.

            Unlike with the Volvo Penta SX or DP-S style:

            No gimbal bearing
            No rubber hub drive coupler
            No annual alignment required
            Larger footprint transom shield against the structural transom
            Crankshaft driven seawater pump

              Except for the fact that it appears it's a half closed cooling system with those bitchen headers being raw cooled.....imagine what those cost to replace, if they're even still available !

                Dean, I'm a bit unclear on that.
                We can see what would appear to be multiple seawater supply ports at the bottom of each manifold, so why the fittings at the upper areas?
                In other words, if the manifolds are Raw Water cooled, they would receive seawater at the bottom, then that seawater would exit with the exhaust gasses, not via the upper fitting..... yes/no?

                  I would think it's a "dry joint" arrangement, without more and clearer pictures it is "what looks like half closed to me"

                  Also, if it were full closed there would be a return line from each manifold to the H.E.

                  The individual lower inlets are the same as what Volvo has been doing with non-siamese manifolds for years.

                  Maybe look for drawings on marine parts Europe.
