496 MAG HO (425-hp)


Brief Summary

The new high-tech 496 MAG HO (high-output version) represents the next generation of powerful, smart, virtually maintenance-free engines. The PCM 555 microprocessor is built right in, so you can take advantage of everything SmartCraft™ has to offer in the way of increased performance and convenience. And by incorporating Horizon™ engine technology, it offers a 3-year extended maintenance interval (except for periodic fluid-level checks and seasonal oil and filter changes).
