    14-liter V16 LS-based Marine Engine Unveiled

    New 14-liter V16 LS-based Marine Engine Unveiled
    Enginelabs
    By Mike Magda
    2/16/2017





    A new LS-based V16 engine capable of 1,200 to 1,400 horsepower without boost was introduced today at the Miami Boat Show. The foundation for this 14-liter marine powerplant is a patent-pending M16 cylinder block that supports four production-style LS3 or LS7 cylinder heads along with separate conventional intake manifolds.

    Unlike many other V12 or V16 engine projects that weld two cylinder blocks and two sets of cylinder heads together, engineers from Sixteen Power designed a bespoke single-piece cast cylinder block constructed from A356-T6 aluminum–which has more desirable material properties than 319 alloy often used in OEM engines. The block is spread between the front eight and back eight cylinders so that two sets of 6-bolt LS cylinder heads can be installed without modification.
    Sixteen Power has set a tentative redline of 7,000 rpm for the naturally aspirated model with a goal of 1,200 horsepower, although a 1,400-horsepower model is in the works–probably with LS7 heads. A supercharged model could make 1,600 horsepower, and upwards of 2,000 horsepower is possible with a quad-turbo configuration. If there’s enough interest, the company will explore a 900-horsepower model that is built for extended reliability.

    You gotta' kinda' love the lunacy here..... and yet, they would not have done this unless they seriously thought it would be worth doing.

    Wow

    Looking forward to the pics of Al Gore and friends going for a ride.

    Wonder about a follow on.... follow behind or 'Autonomous' Fuel Barge / Fuel Tanker option ?

    And you just know that ah....... 'resting' comfortably on top of the Cover with a little lump in the idle or whatever........ with your favorite Bosom oops, I mean Bosun First Mate would probably be more than ok.....

    On a more serious note..... gotta' kinda' wonder about some kinda' AFM option or....... that what do they call...... Split Fire ? advanced type.

    Oh and perhaps or perhaps not an Aircraft type derivative effort........

    Boats that need 1400 HP, care little about fuel mileage. In fact something in that line would, easily burn close to 100 gallons/hour or 0.5 miles/gallon.

    I would say lots. Your right leg would be extremely hot from the exhaust. And likely your arms & head also with those headers.

    Thinking of this project using 2 4.3 Gen V engines as the base. I would like to revise GMC's TwinSix engine for my '69.

    This I'd like to hear. Also 600 hp from each 7L is doing better than a stock LS7, so pretty respectable.

    If you search YouTube, there is a video where a guy put a twin six in a pickup remarkably similar to yours, though it has an extended cowl. I believe that particular engine the guy used was a stationary power plant originally.

    Edit: found it, looks like it's earlier than yours: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=3Cd0nIdD-8Q

    Must be Interesting to drive considering it was usually put in semis, fire trucks, and mobile rocket launchers.

    Factory HP numbers would pale by today's standards for V8s. But, a pretty cool project & video. And if a TwinSix won't fit in my truck unaltered, I would go find a larger GMC to stuff it into.

    It's not that big of a deal, marine engines have lighter emissions requirements.

    Also placing the headers next to the intake is going to hurt eventually.
