It was no big secret that Mercury Racing was going automotive with its QC4v Twin Turbo Motor and who better to assist in the rep of the brand at SEMA than Daves Custom Boats with the beautiful red M41 tilted on a Lugo trailer.

While it is unfortunate for us that DCB couldn’t be here in Miami and Key West for the big run we will give them a pass as they are showing off the very best quality the high performance boating word has to offer to the SEMA crowds.

Daves Custom Boats has installed numerous Mercury Racing QC4v Motors in their boats with incredible results. We are all anxious to see the reception Mercury Racing gets from the SEMA crowd as this is their very first showing at the event. If you are in Las Vegas you can find them at booth 34225.

Mercury Racing is showing off a new street rod crate engine version of their all-aluminum. quad cam 9.0L QC4v turbo marine engines. Mercury offers the marine versions in 1100, 1350 and 1650 horsepower. Speculation from the show leads us to believe Mercury will be offering these to car builders in at least 600 HP naturally aspirated packages. All this power doesn’t come cheap however, as the 90-degree 9.0L DOHC V-8 aluminum block (with dual-overhead cam heads Designed/Developed/Produced by Mercury Racing) is estimated to cost $65,000.
