  1. Help please! Newbie here and looking to purchase my first cruiser and a Chap. Essentially similarly equipped boats of the 2006 290 Signature are near me. One has Volvo-Penta 5.0 GXI-FSX 270 hp each whereas the other has the Volvo 4.3 OSi-F 220 hp each.

I knew they were the basis of the PCM engines that were in Nautiques for many years but ironically when they left the market GM started making the blocks for PCM -- weird. Found this article from Fall 2013 announcing Ford taking the Raptor 6.2 liter to the water with Indmar for inboards. Makes me wonder if they will get into I/O packages at some point.... http://www.boatingmag.com/news/ford-motor-company-re-ente
