1997 Carver 405 Gas Engines

Postby Wayne162 » September 21st, 2015, 5:31 pm

I have a question on the 405's gas engines that I am having surveyed and sea trialed tomorrow. The boat has Crusader 454's in it but I don't know the model # to get maintenance or manual info on the specs of the engines. I have been told that they are 454 XL's, but I am not sure as anything I have read refers to the XL's as having carbs. These engines are fuel injected and appear very clean. Could they be 454 XLi's? While mechanically inclined, I am not sure of the difference between the XL or Xli, and have no idea what the MP stands for. Looking for guidance on these engines for the novice and anyplace to get more factual info on them. Thanks in advance.

Thanks g36,
I surveyed and sea trialed the boat on Tuesday. The engines are throttled Crusader 454 XL's w/EFI 320 hp each. They were in the cleanest engine room I think I've ever seen. We planed nicely and fast and had no problem reaching 4250 RPM's at 25 Knot's. What a ride!!!!!
