BIG Block Gas Engine Rides Again

BIG GAS IS BACK!

The Most Powerful Gasoline RV Engine In The World

Power Solutions International (PSI) in 2016 will begin delivering its own, from the ground up, design 8.8L engine that will provide owners with 500 Horsepower and 565 lb/ft of torque at 1500 RPM. Light years ahead of its GM Vortec predecessor, the 8.8L gasoline engine is specifically designed and engineered as an RV engine which is intended to compete with costly diesel powered motorhomes. Gasoline power always has and will continue to be the most affordable product to buy and own over the long term.

Really?
Lies, who comes up with the bull? My stock 2008 Dodge car gas engine puts out 600 hp and 560 FtTq. My 2005 Dodge truck gas engine stock is 500 hp, 525 tq.

The 2015 NS Dodge gas engines put out 645 hp and 600 tq. They also have gas v8 engines that stock have 707 hp.

The article states "Gasoline RV Engine." I also wouldn't want to compare the 8.8L against a 502 crate engine but those are not in use OEM in an RV application.

There are lots of more powerful gasoline engines as you have established.

I agree....put it in a RV!
The Diesels offered still stink and shake, real world 10 year maintenance is 5 times more than a gas engine.

Highly doubt those Dodge motors are making their "big" horsepower/torque at 1500 rpm!! Therein lies the difference!

As far as our RVs are concerned, TORQUE is king over displacement & horsepower. I would rather have my 350 hp diesel w/1,050 fp torque that a 500 hp Gasser w/565 fp torque. Of course that difference is measured partially in $$ upfront & in maintenance.

The engines you have listed do not developed the horse powers you have listed at 1500 rpm. If that hp and torque listed by the op is correct, that is massive and on par with an aircraft engines performance

The OP posted ad doesn't say much or prove anything.
Lets see if that engine is really made and placed in a real motorhome that is sold to the pubic.
