Designed, developed and manufactured by Mercury Racing, the supercharged engine features a CNC-machined V8, 8.2L cylinder block completed with Mercury Racing-designed and -specified hardware. The 700 SCi comes equipped with the Mercury-exclusive Propulsion Control Module (PCM) microprocessor. Combining the powerful engine management computer with a screw-type supercharger, roller camshaft, and sequential fuel injection results in impeccable idle quality, instant throttle response and unmatched performance throughout the 4800-5200 rpm engine operating range. The PCM computer also enables individual cylinder control. The ability to optimize fuel, spark timing and knock control independently for each cylinder enhances engine running quality, performance, fuel economy and durability.
