Slowed by the pandemic in 2020, the Sixteen Power V-16 engine project has regained momentum, according to the Detroit company’s Tom Robinson. A pair of the outfit’s naturally aspirated mill producing a combined 2,200 hp have been installed in a 42-foot MTI cat owned by former offshore racer and performance-boating enthusiast Jeff Stevenson, and water-testing is ongoing.
The MTI cat will debut on the water during the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout, August 25-30, in Central Missouri, and will compete in the top-speed contest, said Robinson.
Featured on the cover of the most recent issue of Race Engine Technology magazine, the Sixteen Power V-16 platform was introduced at the 2017 Miami International Boat Show. The company plans to offer it in naturally aspirated and supercharged versions.
