Anyone know what kind of numbers they get with a 400..my buddy has a light Wayne Beal with a cummins 400...tops out at 26 kts
I think the 33' YB is right on the 3:1 pin, so she's probably go a little better than the WB. Youngs are fast all all git out if they are built light....I wonder which Iveco motor? I know (or at least I thought) they share some blocks with Cummins.....
ZERO truth in rumors on Iveco sharing common blocks with Cummins!
5.9 Common bore/stroke (102X120) in the block, that's about it.
Robustness in the "crank/block/innards", apples and oranges!
Are you building this one in Bellingham?
Bill- I was under the understanding, that the Cummins and Iveco were the same long blocks, but marinized by the respective companies. I thought the 5.9 Cummins and Ivecos were identical, as well as the Iveco and Cummins 6.7's. Guess I may have been wrong; where did you get your information?
As far as experience with Iveco engines, I installed their 5.9 liter (they call it the N60) that was an A2 rating of 370 hp. It performed impressively and the power to weight ratio is great. Very strong, fuel efficient, smooth, etc. This next boat I'm starting on in a week will have the 6.7 liter N67 A2 rated 420 hp, which is probably the same exact engine that will be going in this new 33' Young bros.
