Monsoon 350 5.7L vs. 410 6.2L

Recommended Posts

Is this technically an "upgrade" in engines & would I be gaining anything for power by upgrading from a 2013 to a 2016?  From what I have researched, the horsepower is the same, but there is more torque with the 410.  Am I understanding this correctly?

The graph below is something I saved years ago.  I have had the 340 and 350 monsoon and my butt dyno tells me the 6.2 410 is an upgrade.  I don't believe the 410 listed in this graph is the Raptor 6.2 but the Indmar (GM) version from around 2012-2013.  I am putting it here simply for the 5.7L 350 specs.  292HP vs 353HP and 370 vs 410 lb ft on the Raptor 6.2L. 

I was a little disappointed when I learned the 410 was torque and not HP.  I had a 15' A22 w/ 350 which was similar in weight to my 22VLX.  My new boat will hit almost 42mph while the A22 would top at 38-39 depending on water conditions. I couldn't get to wakeboard speed with PnP full and a decent crew and now I can.  The power wedge makes a big difference with this but for comparison I put the wedge at 3 clicks down from stow (figured this was closest to floating wedge position at start) and we hit our mark of 21mph.  It took a little bit to get their but it did it and my Axis would not.   

Malibu offers the 6.2L standard on 16s so it's not an upgrade cost but I listed it in the "Pro" column when we were thinking of upgrading.
