Volvo Penta V8-350
The Volvo Penta 350-hp small block V8 has a wide range of applications because of it light weight (996 lbs.) in both single and twin-engine installations. While there is nothing new about variable valve timing, there is something new about the low-end torque and noteworthy fuel efficiency that we experienced during our tests recently. The block comes from GM and has proven itself in all manner of small truck and SUV applications. Volvo has marinized this basic block with some clever innovations which make the package more user friendly and more durable in the marine environment.
