A Quicksilver® crate engine can be a value alternative to purchasing a complete new engine if the engine to be repaired has internal damage, but the dress components are in good condition. A Quicksilver crate engine is a major assembly that includes a new longblock as well as the fuel delivery and ignition components required for a high-quality major repair. The engine is completed by reusing many components from the engine being repaired, or those components must be purchased separately. Quicksilver crate engines are universal power upgrades for Mercury® MerCruiser® sterndrive and inboard applications, and they’re adaptable to other brands of sterndrives and inboards regardless of make.
Quicksilver crate engines are new from the bottom up – never rebuilt, remanufactured or reconditioned. You get a brand-new engine with improved components, technology and built-in durability designed to withstand years of marine duty – one of the most abusive and demanding environments for any engine.
The foundation of every Quicksilver crate engine is a new iron block cast to our specifications and designed expressly for marine duty. Thicker castings ensure quieter operation and better durability in saltwater when compared to a standard automotive block.
Black‑X composite valves contribute to a 42% reduction in valve wear compared to traditional stainless steel valves with hardened seats, for longer engine life, especially in the presence of modern ethanol-blended fuels. Smooth-flowing Quicksilver cylinder heads deliver added performance in sterndrive or inboard installations.
Multi-Port Fuel Injection (MPI)
The modern Multi-Port Fuel Injection (MPI) featured on the Quicksilver 350 MPI Bravo® Crate Engine offers easier starts, improved fuel economy and snappier throttle response when you replace an older engine with a carburetor or early fuel-injection system.
Three-Year Limited Warranty
