Opinions 267 SSX.... Merc 8.2 - 2012

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm close to making an offer, curious to get some opinions on the 267 SSX and the 8.2 Merc with Bravo3's  (400hrs).... I've own an older 256SSI with an 8.1L... and I was very happy.... 

thanks

The only thing I do not like about the Merc built 8.2 is that it uses a cast iron block and aftermarket aluminum head. I've never been a fan of that set up as the head gaskets have to work overtime. The raw water pump has been upgraded over the old 8.1, and now features replaceable stainless end plates. As long as the engine has never been overheated, you should be fine. W
