Engine Swap need some input.

Recommended Posts

I have a 2005 Wakesetter VLX with a 340 Monsoon, and now I have a 2009 Indmar Saltwater Series 6.0L engine going in. This post is to get some technical help with a known issue that might come into play. This engine was for an 09 Mastercraft. After talking to Indmar about the compatability with my boat this has moved forward. Indmar has verified that the engine mounts are identical, and that my ZF Hurst 45 V-drive tranny are completely compatable. Indmar also provided the dealership with a solution for my throttle cable to connect to a sensor for the electronic throttle. As far as wiring harness Malibu's and Mastercraft's are different where the deustch connectors connect for the engine data. Indmar claimed a matching pin out adapter would make this all come together. Does anyone have any experience, knowledge, input, or ideas where to get, or make such an adapter. A guy Kurt from Indmar has helped with most of the technical details and also informed me that all the data being delivered to the gauge cluster from Indmar engines is universal. Any input would be greatful, just want to get our Bu back on the water!

Monsoon has 650 hrs on her with 400 of those hrs being salt driven. Our manifolds needed to be replaced do to mass leakage, and we had water on a plug with a compression ratio of 30 PSI. NOT GOOD! our engine is close cooled and it was going to be 5-6K do do all the work. The 09 6.0L Saltwater Series with tranny was 6,500 shipped. Plus this takes our Bu back down to zero hrs.
