Overview

Description

The all-new 1550 dual calibration sterndrive features an advanced control system which enables the operator to switch engine power level via an electronic key fob. The Race key fob turns the engine into a pure bred race machine – pumping out one thousand five hundred and fifty horsepower on 112 AKI race fuel. The Pleasure key fob is selected when a more leisure ride is in order, creating 1350 h.p. on 91 octane (98 RON) fuel. Both fuel calibrations provide maximum torque and efficiency and are designed to optimize the engine performance at each power level.

Features
  • Dual Calibration: This isn’t just a valet key that reduces engine power, each key fob changes the engine calibration for optimal performance at each of the horsepower levels
  • Drivability: The long flat torque curve of the engine combined with Digital Throttle and Shift allows the 1550 to rocket you to speed with the smoothness and ease of a high-end luxury vehicle throughout the full RPM range
  • Durable: The 32 valve quad cam valve train offers extreme durability at high horsepower and engine speeds so you can be confident in knowing that the engine can handle anything you can
  • Efficient: The combustion system provides fuel efficiency rewards of 20 to 30% over similarly rated engines
  • Intercooler Filter: The Mercury Racing intercooler filter with stainless steel element and housing is designed for ease of removal and cleaning.
