Many engine builders build great engines. However, not many engine builders can build great marine engines due to the many factors at play that differentiate it from an automobile engine.
Lucky for pleasure boat and offshore boat owners who frequent Alexi Sahagian’s engine shop, Boost Power USA in Newbury Park, CA, Alexi has more than figured out how to make marine engines live. While much of the pleasure boat market utilizes big block Chevy power, Alexi built himself a marine engine that’s a bit different than the rest. It’s a 650 cubic inch compound-boosted marine engine and we’ll tell you all about it in this episode of Engine of the Week.
