Vortec 8100 425HP Engin

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at a boat this weekend that is a 2003 LSV with the Vortex 8100 425 HP engine. What can you tell me about this boat? Is the hull skiable at all, I know it will be awesome for wakeboarding. How about this motor? My previous boat was a 1992 Mastercraft with a 285 HP 351 motor. Obviously this is a lot more power, can I expect it to last for 1000 hours? Thanks for any info you can provide.

I have that motor in a 2006 247 lsv and it is awesome. I have 350 hours with no issues and I would think that 1500 hours is still very low for a well maintained 8.1. That would be equal to 100000 miles in a truck.

Hull Chart here. In 2003, all the LSV's were on Diamond hulls and not the Wake hulls. They will ski better than the LSV's with the Wake hulls.
