Malibu M5Di specs

Recommended Posts

This may have already been asked and answered but does anyone know the specs on the new M5Di motor?  How does it compare to the  Monsoon 410?

All I have seen is ratings of 350HP.  Not sure of other specs.

Crickets. I have been asking as well, still too early for anyone to get in one I imagine. 5.3L, 350 hp and depending on who you ask either a 1:76 or 2:1 trans ratio. I haven’t seen or found any figures on torque yet. Two consistent claims are: it is very quiet and is a lot more fuel efficient than previous motors. Mine sprays the 27th, doubt I will get it wet until the end of March if that.

I also really wish there was a bit more info on the new motor.  It is a crazy to check a box on an order sheet with a new motor with minimal info.. basically just the 1 pager marketing overview. Oh... other than "quieter" and "better fuel economy"  Fingers crossed it is good!

Not exactly the info folks are looking for, but I have never seen this posted here before from last falls investor presentation.

I get mine the 3rd week of March and will chime in at that point as well. I imagine there will be LOTS of feedback in the 4-5 weeks.

I wish. I just meant that there will be a lot of new engines in the water over the next month.  There a lot of folks on here spraying in March.

Man that would be awesome if you could get some pics of mine. My company planned a meeting the same week mine is being built. Mine is 22mxz all black with the new blue color and tan interior. Here are pictures from the boat builder!

how is the M6 only 400 HP? The smallest motor in the big boats just a few years back was the Monsoon 409. So was that motor over rated? Or is this huge power advantage supposed to be all in the extra 50 ft lbs of torque?

I don’t know but the Raptor wasn’t high HP and it’s torque pushes us around just fine.  I bet with the new tranny ratios and larger props,actual engine output is being tuned for efficiency as well.

The 2015 Indmar Monsoon 409 in Malibu boats, or the 2015-2019 Pleasurecraft Monsoon 409 in Axis boats (and 2019 Malibu) are not really 409 horsepower.  According to CARB they were rated at 270-271 KW, or about 363 HP.  The Malibu M6 is CARB rated at 301 KW or about 403 HP.

That's a little weird.  The PCM version of that engine is 450HP/465 ft/-lbs. of torque.

According to CARB, the 2019 Pleasurecraft 6.2 D6 is 291 KW or 390 HP.

Correct. The 409 is referring to torque, not HP.

According to GM, the L96 produces 360 HP at 5400 RPM and 380 LB-FT of torque at 4200 RPM, so I think the 409 is simply referring to an arbitrary model designation, and nothing more.
